Quick guides to apprenticeships
hey!! ive applied to the border force assistant apprenticeship and ive got a scheduled interview for the 14th of august,,,, has anyone been to these interviews and would tell me what it is like? im so nervous!!!
I'd suggest having a look on Glassdoor if you haven't already, as people will likely have shared their interview experiences there
I also have an interview for the same role!
Try your best not to be nervous as nerves can show. Make sure you look up the competencies on the home office website which should help!
I also not sure what to expect other than what they have said on the email
I applied for the apprenticeship. Had my interview yesterday and found out today I was successful and placed on reserve list
I found out yesterday I was unsuccessful. Performed well in all the tests and competencies but apparently showed minimal demonstration in the interview. Laughable really when the interviewers were 3rd party external assessors with no idea about the role but hey. It's done now. At least I have an answer and wont be waiting months. Good luck to you!
If you don’t mind me asking when was your interview and where for?
I’m wondering if anyone can give me some advice anything will be gratefully received.
I received a provisional job offer back in November pending checks, they are now waiting for just one to be returned which is from my previous employment with the civil service 15years ago ( I was only employed with them on six month contract ) I’ve sent my old staff number but it appears the HR department have not answered the request.
Now they have asked me to contact the my old HR department and ask them to action the request.
If the HR department don’t action the request before 09/04/2020 ( less than two weeks) they will withdraw my offer!!
if any one has any guidance or a phone number for civil service HR. Maybe pay roll, it would be really appreciated as I can’t seem to get through to actually to talk to anyone especially in the current climate.
From 15 years ago, that's bonkers. Did they request a reference from every employer you have had? Apart from dates of employment it is unlikely anyone would remember you from 15 years ago? What was the outcome?
