Hi guys,Anyone else in the same boat as me? Applied for the recent recruitment drive and still ain't heard anything despite the candidate pack saying that sifting was to start on July 20th with interviews hoping to be done from August 3rd onwards.Take it I likely haven't been considered if this is the case? Still waiting on a response but the timing hasn't been great.

I'm the same! Passed them in June and felt really confident about the whole application, but the timing is starting to worry me! Dont worry about the candidate pack thing. It was on the original Civil Service job post at the bottom of the page. If you log onto your civil service jobs portal and click on the application you should be taken to the original job posting and it will be at the bottom 🙂

They are looking in to it right now. I really hope by the end of this week we will hear something. I have tried to change a choice location and have sent them an email that what I got as a reply...
Unfortunately we are unable to amend your application once it has been submitted and therefore we will progress the application on the information already provided. We are looking to release the sift result on this vacancy soon and are currently working to do so. Please keep a regular check on your CS jobs account and emails for updates.

Aw God that's frustrating! Maybe you'll get the chance at the interview to explain what your favoured location will be and whether you want to change it. I'm pretty much between Glasgow and Edinburgh and put Glasgow down as my favoured one, but then realised that when I move out at the start of next year I'll end up being closer to Edinburgh 😂

To be honest I am happy about first location anyway. Just had a crazy idea but no than no. Just to get a job will be fantastic😁

My fingers are crossed for you! I think it would be such an exciting career choice to take, and getting into the Civil Service is brilliant on so many levels. Job security, career progression etc. Here's hoping we get fortunate. I'm glad to hear they're still in the process though and haven't contacted everyone! Just not hearing anything 8 days after the official sifting start date is a concern.

Last year June I applied for the job I got an interview in December. Then in January I was put on the reserve list and in March/April I had gotten a provisional offer and we are in July and I’m still waiting for a start date lol. The civil service do take a long time it was the same with my current job.

I think we should have some answers by Friday. But it also says that due to coronovirus the dates can change. So maybe we will have to wait a bit longer. But I am sure if anyone from here will get positive or negative result, he/she will post it here. Let's keep everyone updated. Good luck everyone🤞

Wow that's crazy! That would be winding me up haha! But well done on getting the offer in any case! What did the interview entail out of interest?

Honestly, don’t hold out any hope for it to be quick. I applied to last years apprenticeship intake and I only got a start date last week. There is people still waiting from 2018 for jobs.
I applied August 2019
Interviewed November 2019.
Provisional offer March 2020
Security check May 2020
Formal offer August 2020

Thank you 😊 they just asked you strength based questions, best way to answer them is to give an example for each. I found that worked best for me whenever I went for an interview.
