  1. Yeah agree and depending who it is can be a diffrent result/marking that's why it's a shit system imo.

    Civil service are currently phasing out competency based applications
    chevvies and Voice of fair play like this.
  3. Yeah going towards success based profiles I believe.

    Yeah, more CV based

  5. Which is probably the right way to go imo, then people can hopefully apply for jobs they skilled and experienced it and have proven they can do it.

    Rather than just filling in 4 good competencies and conducting a good interview and then getting thrown into a job in which they have no technical knowkegdege off, which happens under the current system

    I do a lot of interviewing, usually a mixture of CV and competency based - makes no odds to me, I just give the jobs to the birds with the biggest tits - it works for me

    Shutting the door after the horse has bolted....HMRC have promoted approx 8000 people in recent years under competency system.
    The cases of people using other competencies or making them up are all too common.
    Under the system the applicants manager for internal appointments does not get to see or confirm accuracy of application, merely just to confirm not under disciplinary action or needs improvement ( now ended)
    No way for the manager etc to say a particular competency is true :eek:

    Have you seen what they are being replaced by - a CV based on competencies seen someone get a job putting someone else's competencies on the form,

    Buddy, Pal, Mate. :lol::lol::lol:, not sure why you have taken such a dislike to me, but you can carry on with your comments, go on, you know you want to

    Yep, unless the people interviewing ask for other examples, then bullshitters get through

    Applied for a County Court job and was put on the reserve list. Got a call the morning the job was due to start, the person who got the job was a no show. Lasted six months, hated my boss.

    Aggressive fucker aren't you!

    I'd completed five years of working for the CPS as a Crown Court caseworker but applied to move due to an unsettling death threat as a well known pimp and dealer was acquitted. Prefered that to dealing with fines and bailiffs at the County Court.

    I’ve heard of people passing a good competency around a team to use :eek: and others have verified this to me.
    Once queried this with someone in SCS and their response was “ well we do put a warning about disciplinary action if we suspect someone is lying”

    I asked how many applicants were subject to C&D for this....I was told no figures available :eek:

  15. Yeah could not agree more, that system amazingly allowed people to be shit at their current job.

    But then able to make up competencies or even get someone to do it for them to get promoted

    Without any validation whatsoever whether they true or not!

    While I’ve hopefully got no more than 5-6 years left and while I’m not one to hold back with senior not sure I’d want to commit career suicide by going down FOI requests :lol:

    Still have mates who are branch chairs of Union and also a lad who I used to know who is now on National executive...their message was bigger battles to fight ( pay and general erosion of terms and conditions)
