Hey guys,

I recently interviewed for a policy role with MOJ. I received an email today saying that I’ve been put on the reserve list for 12 months as I was a strong candidate. My questions are- has anyone here actually received a job via the reserve list? If so, how long did the process take for you and did you receive an offer for the exact role or something different?

Thanks

Timing for reserve lists can be a mixed bag. However, with the amount of policy recruitment in Government at the moment, hopefully it should be fairly quick!

That sounds promising! I‘ve read a lot of mixed reviews on the reserve list- some people have said it’s a polite rejection and others saying they’ve never had any offers, but I’m remaining hopeful that something does come up!

I’ve been on the recruitment end for MoJ and I know we used reserve lists all the time, so it’s definitely not a polite rejection!

Thanks for this dhughes! I’ve been a little down over this as it was my dream job, but your replies have perked me up

No problem at all - it can take a while with the CS but will be worthwhile in the end!

Fingers crossed! Really sorry, but I have one more question - would I have to wait for the exact role I applied for to open up again, or could it be any policy role with the same competencies?

Usually any similar role.
