I got an EOI for a EO level and sent back the form and CV last week. Slightly gutted I didn't do well enough for HEO (only scored 8.98) as I left my last role in the DWP at EO level so if something is available and I get it it would feel like I'm slightly going backwards but it does feel like it's easier to climb in the Civil Service than form outside it. Does anyone have a rough timeline about when they are likely to come back with role suggestions form the EOI forms? I'm so desperate to leave my current job as it's just not challenging enough so would love to move back to the civil service and climb from within.
Yes, received an email yesterday for HEO! I’m going to be studying a masters starting in September for Public policy, do you think I should include this in my CV or will it put them off my application due to not being ‘focused’ on working?
