Thank you!! Think I scraped through compared to some of the scores on here!! Fingers crossed you'll heat something soon
Don’t I felt like that! But you did it so congratulations! I got a 4 on my application so hoping my interview was better. I have my fingers and toes crossed haha! I will post on this thread the outcome, but as I say I emailed GRS yesterday so hopefully will hear by the end of the week😄.

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.
Thank you! It's really hard to know sometimes, I get a marked time allowance so not sure of that would follow me over or not! Something to ask if I get an offer!

I got a 5 on my application, only got 29 in total on the interview, I did have people walk in on me during some of my answers 🤦. Still a pass is a pass!! I got acceptable demonstration which is disappointing! I did wonder if the lower the score the longer it will take to get an offer?

Oh no, well that can't be helped and they probably expect distractions to a certain extent due to having the complete the interview at home, a car alarm went off during one of my answers and I even found that really off-putting! Like you say you still passed! I'm really unsure how they prioritise/stagger interviews/job offers. It may be on scores or it may be dependant on the amount of applicants/location etc! Luckily we can email the GRS email when we have waited a while.

Yes we can 🙂. Can I ask where you've applied for? I've applied for Teesport which is North East, haven't seen many on her apply for anything Northern!

I just had the email last week to say I was on the waiting list! I've applied for Teesport, haven't seen anyone else apply for that? There'll probably be more vacancies in the south!, Wonder of they're filling those first?!
Congratulations again!

Oh brilliant, well done! I hope you don't have to wait too long til they start filling positions there. Yeah I think I saw they had started offering jobs in Gatwick I think, so maybe they're doing it bit by bit through location. Thank you and fingers crossed you get your offer asap!

Does anyone know of anyone doing this job at the moment? Just wondering if anyone knows how often and how long the deployments tend to be?

1 week, I believe once on a set of 'nights' more if urgent.

Thank you, so is that a week of night shifts in a row but coming home after each shift or do you mean be away for a week? Just wondering how often and how long I might be away from home

I've been told you do earliest and lates in your region. Nights is the week you can get deployed away. Doesn't mean night shifts. But you could be away for the whole 7 days. Travel to and from on the first and last day so therefore 5 days at work between travelling. It depends on your pattern, based on mine think it could be once in roughly 5 weeks. But there are caveats. Business needs, urgent situations or if you travel to a place which is outside of safe driving hours you'll stay in a hotel and then spend the week there. Even if you live X amount of hours away.
