Will you ever give over..... I hear you love to complain anyway! Others where you are based don't think the same...
This is probably a stupid question but on the medical form under family history are they looking for names of family or medical conditions of family members?
Also I have a phone medical, does anyone know if there will be further medical exams or is it just this one?
Jaysus I’d say just the medical conditions, giving names would go against GDPR surely
Just got an email saying panel closing the 29th Nov. I was only interviewed two weeks ago placed on no. 11 of my area. Seems very unfair to interview people at this late stage when they knew they would be closing panel. I was an nervous wreck before interview now it seems was a waste of time 😭
Oh no, that’s very unfair getting peoples hopes up 😕😕
please read the msg again . panel is closing early next year . they are advising to apply for the new panel which has 29th nov as the closing date.
The closing date for applications to the new campaign is November 29th. They are only starting the process. The 2020 panel will run until they form the 2022 panel, early next year.
"Success is not final, failure is not fatal. It is the courage to continue that counts"
Thanks guys read again 😁 Hopefully im still in with a chance
Oh me nerves 😬 I was waiting for the email 🙈
Anyone know what oom they are on for Dublin?
Yes, they most certainly do!
Fine, but don't be painting eveyone with the same brush.
Easy work out who someone is when they quote their life on an public message board.....
I don't particularly care to be honest. What I have said it true and other people have had similar experiences to me.
I'm currently batch 2 num 78 and going through vetting if that's any help?
Batch 2 or 32 ?
From last msg from them on 22nd they were on batch 32 OOM 108 ( including 52 people who are on clearance / vetting stage) for Dublin panel .
Apologies batch 32. Where are you in the oom?
I am batch 32 OOM 123 .. so fingers crossed 🤞
Just got a quick question for ya'll for the new CO campaigner..
If my choices are:
Am I right in thinking, I could be called for Dublin first if it came up first? Or have you to wait for the first choice to come up first?
Can I ask advice please? I really want to go for the CO campaign but reading the info booklet they say that the interviews will be January 2022, that seems really quick going from reading this thread. People from the 2020 campaign were only interviewed a couple of weeks ago for example.
I am currently studying and am hoping to get a job as a CO (obviously it's very competitive and fingers crossed and all that!) in a year to 18 months. Should I wait til the next intake or should I get myself on the panel now (again fingers crossed I make it that far!) ?
My advise is apply and go through the process of exam and interview. You can always decline an offer but you will gain great experience.
Thanks a mill, can you decline without it affecting a future application?
I applied Nov 2019 and only came up for interview in September 2021 others were interviewed months before me so I suppose it depends on your order of merit given from the tests etc
It will have no impact on future applications. Public Service is well used to applicants not accepting an offer for a myriad of reasons including "still studying "
It usually takes a year to a year and a half before being offered a place! It's a long drawn out process..
No, you don't have to wait. My second choice came up first and I accepted it. I was then taken off the panel for my 1st choice.
Okay that's perfect Thanks!
I can't see Sligo working out for me unless I got into the 200's (i.e. a miracle). So I'd take Dublin over nothing!
Honestly that's station dependant.
People I know there have a great team atmosphere. Sergeant, inspector and super intendant all extremely polite and really nice and call into the office for a chat. Guards apologetic if reminders were forgotten about and totally on the ball with them usually and always up for a laugh.
Maybe the team atmosphere in your station is us vs them but not all ststions are like that.
No working from home but that more down to confidentiality of certain files and the job needing signatures for everything before it's sent on.
Honestly it isn’t I’ve worked in several Stations and I wholeheartedly agree with samsgirl. And I know of several staff in other stations that would agree. I’m delighted that you’ve had such a positive experience but it’s not the case for the majority of staff
