Which role have you applied for, Jock77?

PS It's called the Psychometric Test.

Sorry psychometric test predictive text at its best...Am have applied for the assistant chefs position...

Is that the qualified position or apprentice position. My understanding for the sift is that you fill in the 2 forms and answer the 2 questions and they pick people for the interview so there isn't a guarantee interview.

Assistant chefs position...As for the 2 forms this is the first time a have heard of this to be honest??

Right ok, I passed the RT last week, was emailed 2 forms one being Rehabilitation of Offenders form and the other was a pre sift form which you have to answer two questions and they take it into account for the sift.

I'm almost certain it all takes place in Pompey. Mine certainly did. Had an overnight stay in Pompey opposite Gunwharf (big shopping centre) and had opportunity to go around the Historic Dockyard (at own expense) so was a good experience. You just pay for the travel and then claim it back.

I've been waiting since December to hear back about mine, have been told may but made contact a few weeks ago just to confirm that was still the case and sure enough it is, but with what's going on right now I am preparing for a delay in procedures.

If you have an interview, will be by phone at the moment. I had my Comms apprentice interview yesterday by phone. If you need any help with questions that are general questions, drop me a message. More than happy to help you out.

Hi, like you, I have passed the psychometric test for the Apprentice Chef role and awaiting the subject matter sift/interview. I spoke to the recruiting people today and everything is still going ahead as normal. As indicated elsewhere on the thread, interviews will probably be via telephone given the present situation, but training is still running as normal. Under normal circumstances interviews would take place in Portsmouth.

Did they tell you when the sift would be complete? I thought I was told mid may but that was a while ago so could be wrong.
If it's any help mine took around a month. You may be lucky and have one soon, or one may have just happened and you will have to wait for another.

Final 4 question form for the sift submitted today. Had to redo it because of the C virus - apparently they are not taking into account scores from the psychometric testing as not all candidates are able to access careers centers at the moment. Bit of a bugger as it took me three days to get to my nearest careers office for the test (Living on a remote island getting anywhere takes heck of a long time!) Had I known the score would be null and void, I would have postponed my application!

Sift process is next month, June!
