OSG then? Where?
Just AO mate,
Aye got a provisional offer last week Just waiting on checks etc now.
Nice one marra. Just keep in mind that stage can take the longest, depending on the area of business. In a past life I had two different experiences. Once time between provision, checks and formal was about six weeks all in. Another I waited four months after I received notification I'd passed checks to get a start date.
Also means they'll offer you a 'similar' post the other side of the country no doubt.
I’ve just promoted from AO to EO. Took longer for the checks to go through for a promotion than it did pre-employment
You have just been removed the list too for posting a government email on a public board
Anyone had much experience of the newer ‘Success Porfile’ application process? Been doing interviews for EO & HEO jobs recently with it. Bit different to competency stuff.
Learn how to get the recruiting manager off.
Got a provo offer 15 Jan, just had email saying pre-employment checks are complete today.
Aye. Most recruitments for relatively low level will still basically be competencies if large numbers needed as it's easier than tailoring. All it's done really is give the employer a bit more licence to mix it up, should they wish.
Or get their mates in easier.
Seems to be boatloads being recruited as caseworkers at the moment.
Could do that no bother either with competencies or profiles tbf if they wanted to.
While they lose shitloads of experience with the ridiculous BOF/ Regional Centre carry on...
No but sounds much better in the sense that it matches peoples skills and experience to a vacancy, rather than the old system of competencies which assumed people could do any job based off good competencies.
What role was that mate?
I rec'd a provo offer for an AO post on December 10th, submitted all relevant stuff immediately and still haven't heard anything. I need to obtain Security clearance on this so it could be the reason for it taking so long?
Also rec'd another provo offer for another AO role January 16th, haven't heard anything yet. Just basic DBS check was required on this I think.
Really hoping either come good soon as I don't know how much longer I can last in my current role and I don't want a gap in employment between the two!
This. My very first civil service interview was for an admin customer service role which I knew I could do with ease, anyway I was pretty bad at the competencies as I'd never done them before so failed miserably, seems a strange way of recruiting tbh. I understand it makes it a level playing field but surely you want people who are better at the job?
Exactly with competencies they were so concerned with been open and fair, that it meant wrong people were put in wrong jobs.
It was a open system, but not a fair system as people who could make up or get someone to do some good competencies for them, woukd then get the job over someone else, who clearly had more skills and experience to do that job.
Is that the moving to ten offices crack?
They'll all be happening, just a matter of when. Some businesses areas are still finalising role details AFTER offering the jobs.
Anyone else clueless as to what AO, EO & HEO stand for?
Edit: Congrats on the offer regardless
In essence yeah...compliance work done remotely
With more campaigns such as “nudge” letters
The old soaks from C&E I first worked with will be turning in their graves.....
Old pay grades....or the latter two are
