  1. Hi Is it normal practice for Northumbria police to introduce an interview stage, i received a letter stating i would go to interview before the assessment centre, is this usual practice as i didn't think it was. I double checked there website and it clearly states the selection process and does not have an interview stage. I think it is due to the backlog of applicants from the last recruitment campaign, as i was told that the next stage would be assessment centre, now am told interview, can they do this, it is normal practice????
  2. Thanks for all the feedback, just a little question, I double checked on Northumbria police website and on the selection process page they don't normally do interviews as it said i would be invited to one in my letter is this normal for an interview at this stage or is it a new stage. Feedback appreciated
  3. Hi all I deffinitely will let the know, thanks for all the feedback. Cheers
  4. Hi all I am about to contact the recruitment regarding my previous employers as i have not declared all previous employers as i missed one out, if i didn't declare them would they be able to find out, i have nothing to hide its just that the employer was really harsh with me and i was only there 3 weeks. Any replies would be really appreciated.
  5. Hi all I received a letter today hand delivered by Northumbria police, i appreciated some information back from them but i don't clearly understand the letter, any help would be appreciated. Part of the letter. ''Whilst we currently have no selection events planned it is highlt likely that we will be running such event towards the end of the year. As part of the recruitment process, we will be inviting you to attend for interview the results of which will determine your progression to the next stage of the recruitment process, the assessment centre. We anticipate being in a position to make appointments from April 2010'' What i don't understand is it says it is highly likely they will schedule recruitment events towards the end of the year, then it says they anticipate to make appointments from april 2010. Do they mean by appoinment by an appointment such as an assessment centre date or appointment as a police officer. Any help i would really appreciate it Many thanks
  6. The pass marks for the assessment centre, The pass marks never stay the same, the government set the marks between 50% and 60% which allows the police forces to decide which pass mark they want at any time, for instance if Northunbria police last intake pass mark was 50% in does not mean the next intake will be 50% it could be 55% or 60%. It is the decision of the Superintendent to decide what he wants the pass mark to be. So if there is only a limited number of posts to fill expect the pass mark to be higher then the national average.
