Stage 2. Interview
If successful at the scoring of the application form, you will be invited to an interview. For certain positions, you may also be required to take part in a selection event however, you will be advised of this.
You should be informed at least seven days in advance of any interview you are required to attend. You will either be notified by telephone call, letter or both. In some situations, you may be given less than seven days notice, which should not be a regular occurrence but may be the case if operational need dictates.
Interview panels will usually consist of three individuals:
The vacancy holder
An independent member from an alternative area command or department
One other member, generally from the area command or department where the vacancy is
The independent is there to ensure impartiality in the process and the panel members are likely to be those who short listed the applications.
The chair of the panel will cover the introductions of the panel members and explain the interview process to you.
