What was your overall rating?
Overall rating: Good Demonstration (5)

It says "You’ve reached the required standard but we’re unable to offer you a job immediately."

Do you know whether they have already offered the job in merit base? ie. 6 & 7

Well I’ve scored acceptable demonstration (4) and they’ve rejected mine. Such a piss take and yes its merit based, so whoever scored the highest would have got the job first. Anyways mate congratulations and good luck...

I have scored acceptable demonstrations overall, but have been unsuccessful. This is so unfair. The first behaviour question was about making an “effective decision” but now they marked me on “working together” thats a clear deception. I am so disheartened.
I don't get it. You are not unsuccessful! Your overall marking is Acceptable Demonstration.
In my case I got 4 & 5 for the behavioural questions but didnt the strength based questions are only 17.

Received an update today regarding the behaviours marked in the portal. Hope everybody else received the same.

Good afternoon,

Following the release of your interview results, we have identified that the scores are showing against Behaviours not assessed at interview. This is due to an error in the system.

Please note that your scores and outcome are correct.

We are currently working with our IT team to find a solution to correct the issue.

"Working Together" should be "Making Effective Decisions"
"Communicating and Influencing" should be "Managing a Quality Service"

Kind regards
Government Recruitment Team

Hi all,

Similar to a few on this forum I received the 'Your application has met the required standard. We will keep your application on hold for 12 months, and we will contact you as and when further opportunities for your location arise.' message.

I applied to Heathrow and Gatwick. No sign of an interview, and reading from others' score I can see why. I got overall 4, moderate demonstration.

I'm guessing these centres are the most popularly subscribed and hence the backlog.

I can't remember if I applied for Stanstead, does anyone know if there's a way to check which locations you applied for?

Hi Trilobite

When I log in there's no detail regarding location. This seems odd, could be that I only applied for one location but I'm sure I selected a couple.

Is there a tab or drop-down that you can check locations?

I haven't had any invite to interview, yourself?

I've applied for Heathrow and Gatwick. Only interview I received is for Heathrow. I've been to the interview and shortlisted.

I think if you have applied for Stansted there should be a separate application for that location (as same as you would have one for Heathrow and one for Gatwick). Otherwise the location should have appeared under Preferred location. Please see below bold italic texts.

Preferred location

Your first choice of work location
Bristol
Your second choice of work location
Cardiff
Your third choice of work location
Hounslow
Further location preferences

Ah ok, if you made separate applications for each location then I must have only applied for the one location, as I only made one application.

Well done on getting beyond interview! I think there's some truth to what a forum member said earlier, recruitment for this is closely linked to Brexit.

How long was your interview if you don't mind me asking?

I had my interview Friday the 4th and received the outcome Monday 7th. I think that was very quick.
