Thank-you!
goodluck girl! do you think everyone will be given the same topic for the presentation? and plus don't the examples given in the personal statement match to each behaviour that they are looking for?

By the way the person that is interviewing would not have been the one that read your examples they do not know anything about You other than your name
thats so handy to know thank you!!!

Hello,

I am also in the process of applying to this role, stumbled across it too just a few days ago.

I have completed the tests this evening and I'm quite happy with the score.

Just got to do the Personal Statement now although I am reusing and reworking some of my behaviour examples from an EO post I have applied for too.

Good luck to everyone!

Hi,

I passed the online tests and got an okay-ish score. Does anyone know if the tests are used for anything other than sifting? Could the scores be used in combination with the statement and interview?

Or is it just a case of passing them, and it doesn't matter how well you do?

I don't know this 100% but I would have thought the tests/personal statement will just be a case of scoring high enough to pass then they don't matter.

To be fair even if they'd had 1000 applications I guess that's not proportionally a lot for 320 roles!

Hi,
I have just recently come across a job advert for a Policy Advisor within the Policy Profession (cross department opportunities) and would like to know if anyone is currently applying and/or heard back from them regarding an interview.
Also how have you found the process so far ?

Thanks
Hi,

I am applying, hoping to submit application tomorrow. Have people generally stated specific departments they'd want to work in, or just said any? I'd be interested in working for at least 5 of them, unsure if I just list them or try to narrow it down. Also i've noticed people saying the test results were good or ok and i'm wondering what is considered a good or excellent result for these? This is my first time applying for CS role so apologies for all the questions.

TIA
Rachel

I said about 4 or 5 I think.
I've read that for the judgement test 32% is usually a baseline pass not sure about the pass for the verbal one sorry. I got in the high 90s for verbal and that was a pass as I got invited to interview.

Oh well done, I found the verbal more difficult than judgement definitely. Have you had your interview yet?

I heard back a week and a few days after submitting so I'd imagine it would be similar for everyone unless they've had a big influx of applications then/since
