Candidates who are successful at the sift stage are advised that they will not necessarily receive their highest preference of Department as some are more popular than others. Occasionally, a Department might withdraw from the Scheme before placements are offered. In such cases, candidates allocated to that department will be placed in a reserve pool.
Candidates who are successful at the sift stage will be invited for interview at one of the participating Departments. Interviews are likely to take place in November/December 2016 and are done on a face-to-face basis. Sample interview questions can be found attached.
The Civil Service is an Equal Opportunities employer. Candidates with disabilities (as defined in the 1995 Disability Discrimination Act) can choose to declare on their application form that they require adjustments at interview, for which we can make a range of provisions. Please contact us should you have any questions regarding this – we would be happy to help.
