Placed on a panel?

    I was recently interviewed for a job in a hospital and at the interview they mentioned having a few vacancies to fill. I just received an email saying "I am pleased to inform you that your name has been placed on a panel for which vacancies arise."
    I'm not sure what this means, my first interpretation was that I didn't get selected this time but would be considered in future. But then the "I am pleased to inform you" bit is an odd wording for a rejection, so might it be that I'm shortlisted?

    Wondering if anyone else received an email like this in the past and knows what it means before I bother HR for clarification!

    You didnt get the job, but if another job becomes available within the next 6 months, they have to offer it to you. That is if you are 1st on the panel. They may have others.

    Public service often fill jobs by using panels. They’ll anticipate a number of vacancies will arise, form a panel of suitable candidates and offer jobs to people on the panel as they come up.

    Typically being placed on the panel means you’ve passed the interview, and will be offered a job if/when there is one.

    Key point is where you are placed on the panel, if you’re number 1 then great - first vacancy comes up you’ll be offered it. Lower places you are then the less chance you have of being offered a position.

    I would think it’s perfectly reasonable to ask HR how their panel system works and if they can tell you where you placed on it.

    Ah okay, do they have to tell candidates where on the panel they are?

    Not necessarily. Some will put it in the letter - no harm in asking though

    HSE panels are different to others.

    If you don't want this particular job, then don't respond.

    Your name will stay on the list, and you will be offered the chance to express interest in the next job that comes up.
