Border Force, Readiness Task Force (RTF)Watch
Thank you, I’m really hoping I’ll find out soon as interview scores seem to be one of the quicker parts to come through! Well I got a 4 in my application which I was quite disappointed with myself about as I didn’t use the success profiles for the application like I should have. I have since applied for another BF position and used the profiles and although I haven’t received the score for that but feel a lot more confident in it already. But as I got an interview for RTF (which would be my preferred position anyway) I still met the minimum standards. Where did you apply for? As that could also maybe be a contributing factor?
That’s interesting, I got the same. 4 also disappointed but I had a feeling it was going to be my weakest compared to the other 3. I put down 3 choices, Gatwick, Heathrow and Folkestone in order of distance of commute. Where did you put down?
I would imagine you would hear soon then, you could always email recruitment and ask for an update if they have one . I went for Folkestone and Dover I think! The interview email really took me by a nice surprise as I really wasn’t expecting it due to seeing so many people wait around 6-12 months, so just keep waiting and where they’ve told you you’ve met the requirements you will get an interview. Good luck, I’m sure you’ll do great.
Thank you, yeah it could be worth an email. I waited and they emailed me a couple of days ago asking for my ID in an email as it didn’t upload successfully on the video interview! Did you have that at all? I’ve also noticed that my status has changed in the portal from ‘invited to interview’ to ‘interview slot booked’ so somethings moved which really excited me haha. Have you checked the status of yours?
My feedback has disappeared as well as the change in status to “interview slot booked” so the ball is definitely rolling. I also emailed BF recruitment to see if they could advise on a timescale for the results, so I’ll update you with any response I receive and good luck to you.
Yes the fact the status has changed of yours too seems promising. That’s great thank you really appreciate it. Good luck to you too! I hope you find out very soon! I did mine on the 27th of July so you completed yours a few days before me as well.
Just received an email back from the recruitment team, I’ve met the required standard for the role but they’re unable to offer me the job immediately. I would say I’m thrilled but who knows how long it is until they can offer me the job or if they do. Hopefully you hear back soon.
I had a response from recruitment today that they’d received my ID images and uploaded them to my record but no interview ‘result’ as of yet.
Thanks for the words of encouragement - I don’t quite know how to feel😂 I applied for Felixstowe, Heathrow and the other I can’t remember, how about you? Oh yes my ID didnt upload properly when I had the video interview either, I sent them the correct details a few days after - I’m sure it wont be long until you hear back.
Honestly that’s amazing news, you’ve been successful! Some people get their provisional offer after that email in like a few days time looking at other threads on here. My good friend has not long got into BF and she had exactly the same. Congratulations. I applied for Dover and Folkestone. I hope I do hear back soon but well done to you😁.
Ahh thats brilliant thats gave me some confidence at least. I know it says on the feedback that a similar role may be offered if opportunities arose however I’m very keen on what I have already applied for. The mobile role would be very exciting for me and the high AHA of 49% is very appealing too - fingers crossed. Keep me updated on how you get on I’m sure you have smashed it!
Hi everyone, I know it seems to be different for each area etc but just for a rough idea please could I ask those who have had a video interview and have received their results how long it took for the results to come through? Many thanks
Big well done to you, I’m currently working for HMRC and know how long BF usually take to employ people however due to the many vacancies available for the RTF role I strongly believe it won’t be long until we receive offers.
