So I interviewed for a civil service position in June. Still waiting to hear the results however I did get an email after the interview asking for PDF copies of my ID. I already shown these in my interview so was wondering if them now wanting pdf copies is a good sign??

Could be yeah, they might just be asking all the applicants they're still considering for the details in pdf, doesn't mean you have a confirmed place. However, it's certainly not a bad sign.

Caveat: I know very little about civil service applications.

Hi, I also did my interview in June, it’s been nearly 6 weeks and still haven’t heard anything. I also received the email asking to send my ID over in PDF too. I was wondering what your status says when you login to the civil service website. Mine still says ‘application update’ hopefully we will hear something soon! Fingers crossed

Hey, which location did you apply for? I heard back around a week ago and was offered the job but a conditional offer as they need to complete pre-employment checks first! I applied for Newcastle, it is a realllllllllly long process the waiting is the worst bit! X

Aww congratulations! I hope it all goes smoothly for you. I applied for Manchester and still haven’t heard back. Would you assume I haven’t got it? It’s so hard waiting around isn’t it. Thank you for replying x

Thank you!! I’d still have hope as they can take ages getting back to people from what I’ve read! I did email them and ask if they knew when they’d be letting people know so I’m not sure if that made a difference at all, definitely still have faith as they would let you know even if you hadn’t got it Xx

Hi there.
Im in a similar position interview for a role in Belfast, I interviewed at the start of July and still waiting.
I sent an email to the one advertised on the advert and I got a response stating that due to COVID 19 its taken them extra time and to keep checking my civil service account.
Hopefully you hear back soon.

Can I ask which role this was for? I’ve applied for a EO Work Coach role in Newcastle (had a closing date of 15/07) and they said last week it was still at sift, so I just wondered if it was the same or different role. Thanks

Hey, of course! I applied for customer service advisor role and the closing date for it was back in March! I think it’s a different role however I have heard back now so hopefully you shouldn’t be too far behind with the closing date being a month ago! It did take so long to get an interview etc due to COVID but hopefully not much longer for us x

Hi, did you get offered the job? I had an interview a few weeks ago and received an email today asking for my ID and now can’t stop thinking about whether it is a good sign.

Hi I did yes! I’m not 100% sure if the asking for ID was anything positive unfortunately but I don’t see why they’d ask for it for no reason! I did have to wait around 7 months to actually start my role so that’s the only negative

Thank you for replying! I thought the same and can feel my hopes building up but I also understand there might be a chance they ask all interviewers for it. I have heard lots of people say that the process from applying to starting the job is very slow.

Hi all. I had a civil service interview almost a fortnight ago and was told I would hear back within two weeks. Again, I got an email today asking for copies of ID documents which I’m taking with a pinch of salt.

Has anyone come across someone who was asked for ID and subsequently rejected?
