Hey everyone,

I keep an eye on the civil service jobs website and i've just noticed maybe 5 different job postings from DEFRA in the international biodiveristy and climate directorate.

Each one has several different roles covering similar but different areas.

I definitely want to apply so going to work through applications this weekend.

I was wondering if anyone else was looking at these too, and if you were planning to do an application for each job posting, or just one?

Looks like they're open until around the 17th. Good luck to anyone else giving it a go!

Hey! I saw these as well and was thinking the same thing. I think I might apply to a few? Tbh I need to have a more detailed look at them this evening and then will decide.

But they sound great, I’d love to work in policy, especially around biodiversity and climate change!

They pretty much all have the same main body of text about what the job role is/what they are looking for etc.

I am hoping applying for just one is enough to have you considered for all of them? Or are you literally just copy/pasting your answers over between job listings?

Hiya.

Just had another look. I'm going to apply to two of them. Everything seems like a copy and paste apart from behaviours. The two I will apply for have different competency questions.
But as you say its still one department and its good there is a reserve list.

Its a new unit so hopefully will work in everyones favour.

I got a 4 and was not successful. That's odd
