Hi

Is there anybody that has applied for AO roles? I’m thinking of applying for the Justice ones.

Does any one know what their like? The ones advertised specify that you need GCSE’s and alevels.
But for some reason this role looks more attractive/or just viable as a third year student?

Anecdotally, AA/AO roles in the civil service does not offer good paths for promotion. OTOH, once you pass probation, you can apply to roles within the civil service that are limited to existing civil servants only.

What exactly is the probation period? Because I’m applying for 12 month contracts
Have you worked any in the admin roles?
I know it’s not great career wise but it’s a start I don’t want to be unemployed straight out of uni
