Recruitment Process - No Final Interview

Recommended Posts

Murtaugh

Hi everybody,

 

I am not sure how true this is, I've heard that there are police services within the UK that don't do a final interview.

 

Does anyone know any services that don't do the final interview after the SEARCH Assessment?

 

Thank you,

 

M

All UK based home office forces have to follow the papersift and SEARCH assessment process as this is a requirement however the final interview is at the discretion of the force themselves. 

In terms of the forces that don't have a final interview process I couldn't say as I genuinely don't know.

Police Scotland is not a HO force therefore doesn’t follow the SEARCH process. They have an exam, initial interview and an assessment centre and that’s it.

Kieran.

The Met don't have a 'Final Interview'.

There is an interview that happens on Day 1 - the equivalent of SEARCH (the new CoP process that is being trialled). It is conducted by a community assessor, lasts 20 minutes and focuses on 4 competency based questions.

If you pass that, there are no other formal assessments, all that remains is Medical/Fitness/Vetting.

If you have a current SEARCH Assessment Centre pass would that be transferable to the Met?

No as 'The Met' don't partake in SEARCH Assessment centres, they run their own version of it. 

Is there a reason why you are only looking at forces that do not have a final interview stage?

If you’re able to move anywhere in the country and have an assessment centre pass, what’s the point in making it difficult for yourself?

Nobody likes interviews, and if you fail, you have to wait 6 months, by which point your SEARCH pass will probably have expired.

Up until recent I had thought that it was a compulsory part of the recruitment process to have a final interview, and out of curiosity thought I would throw the question out there.
