Hi, and thanks as i am a new member on the forum. I received a txt today saying i will be invited soon for a virtual interview for my recent application.
I passed all the online test and was invited to the fitness centre in croydon then cancelled due to Covid19. Has anyone got such text and what happened if i fail the virtual interview.
Thanks

Is this to be a prison Officer? You’d normally do the interview at the ARC centre, as you also have to do the role plays and written tests. So I’m not sure why you would do it virtually in that case???

I’m guessing but as the MOJ has texted this morning to say that assessment centres are still closed, they are doing the interview virtually to narrow down the field to go through to the Maths, English and role play tests. I imagine there is quite a backlog and they are doing what they can so it doesn’t take SSCL as long to get back on track.

The interview is nothing to worry about it’s just so they can get a little insight into who you are.
Nothing difficult, they might ask you something like do you think people can change, obviously that would be a yes because the prison service is about rehabilitation as well.

Plenty of chatter mate, no one word answers, keep the conversation flowing, explain your answers if you can.

As Bear Guy says plenty of chat, give some examples and elaborate as much as you can, gives you a better score!
Noting too worry about!

Thanks to all, And Yes it's the virtual interview then if successful, i will be invited to the ARC for the rest of the test. All due to coronavirus. I was looking of what type of questions they may ask or samples so i can work on it, that's because i am so bad in job interviews. I've being watching some vid on youtube but don't know if they're relevant.
