Sift, as the name implies, is a filter to shortlist viable applicants. Sift is usually a term used for those applying for a Commissioned post, rather than a ratings job, but that's basically the purpose of any job interview, whatever the job.

Thanks for the reply.

So they sift through applications and then decide which candidates they'd like to interview? So pretty much like any other job application really.

No, the sift is an interview. It's after that interview that they decide who to continue with. After my sift I was out forward to the AIB, I'm not sure what comes next for motorman.

The RFA rating sift isn't an interview. It's when they go through all the applications they've received and sift out those they want to interview.
