Thought I'd start a thread for the people going for this year's uptake of NCA Trainee Investigator and Intelligence Officers, so everyone can be updated on everything and give advice and what-not. Shall we start by telling each other what and where we're hoping for?

I'll start.

I'm going for the investigator position in the West Midlands.

Has anyone tried for this in previous years? Or tried for/done anything similar in the past?

North East - Investigator Sunderland
Same here, good luck mate. I've added on Warrington and Wakefield purely to keep my options a bit more open. Unsure if I could do the move but I guess I'll think about that if it comes down to it.

I believe I've seen you on the Civil Service Fast Stream threads before, had no idea you were from the same region. I failed at assessment centre for the last round. I would've applied for this role if I knew it existed - when did the applications open (and close)?

Yep, North East. I failed the Assessment Centre for Fast Stream too lol, but didn't bother with direct appointment because I already got an EO role in the Civil Service. The vacancy closed yesterday unfortunately, can't recall when it opened? Usually they run for around 2-4 weeks though, think it ran for about 3 weeks perhaps.

The candidate pack had a list of all the locations within the regions, should still be available to view under applications on the CS website

Not great, I got 42 on the CSJT, which is still a pass but by no means a guarantee I'll get any further, just have to hope my personal statement was really good.

I'm also going for the South West and both.

I managed 82 and my 'working together' was my weakest score. I have no idea what sort of score they are looking for.

Anyone had any advice regarding the next stage?

Good luck everyone

Just wondering what everyone else’s application says in ‘status’ after taking the tests?

Thanks. Was panicking that I’d done something terribly wrong in the tests to be put on hold. Never applied for the civil service before so not entirely sure how the process works.

And to you Yeah I only put Sunderland because it was the closest to me and I know I wouldn't be able to commute every day to the other locations in the North. I'm AO at Washington currently but still on reserve for DWP and waiting to be intervierwed for Border Force. Hopefully I'll get at least one of these posts :lol:
