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.

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

I’m still waiting to hear. I took my video interview on 23rd July, thinking about emailing GRS to find out about any updates.

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.

That’s amazing!! I think you should be thrilled, I think that’s kind of the standard protocol like what I got for the interview. ‘You met the required standard but we cannot offer your an interview immediately’. You should get your provisional job offer as soon as they can employ you. Congratulations, it’s great news. They responded to you super quickly as well. Where did you apply for if you don’t mind me asking?
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!

You should be super proud of yourself, well done! I’m exactly the same, I’m so ready for a more demanding role like the RTF and I find the prospect of the mobile work in this role super exciting. It will be hard work but of course that’s why the AHA is high. Congratulations again and I will let you know how I get on, thank you!😁

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.

I’m not entirely sure about that although civil servants transferring will start on the slightly higher salary (27k instead of the 24), external candidates will start on the lower pay grade during training but will boost up post training from what I have seen on various threads.
