    Help!!! AC and final interview fast approaching. Can anyone give me an example of the sort of question they ask for the additional competencies (Partnership Working & Leadership)? I understand what partnership working is and know the various agencies Police Scotland work with but I'm struggling to find specific examples, can anyone hep with this? Apart from the additional competencies did anything come up in your interview that you hadn't prepared for in the initial interview? Thanks Sx

    Well done Foxtror123 If you don't mind could you drop me a wee PM giving me an idea of what was asked in your interview? Such mixed messages on here as some say the second interview isn't as challenging as the first. I'm starting to panic a bit.

    Well thats the initial interview done. At the time I thought it went well but i'm now thinking "I should've said this", typical. Answered the job knowledge questions easily enough but the examples I had for the competency based questions didn't fit so I had to think on my feet. Although I answered all the questions I really don't think I was hitting the indicators, I couldn't remember them. The interviewers were great and I know they were trying their best to help me. Please keep everything crossed for me.

    Thanks Foxtror123. Interview is on Wednesday at Jackton. I've been through it before but I'm much more nervous this time. Think I'm trying to learn too much when I know I don't really need to go into too much detail. Struggling with examples for behavioural competencies so I'm just thinking of different scenarios and hope they'll fit with questions they ask.

    Hi Aargh information overload. My brain is quickly turning to mush. In the initial interview what are you expected to know re Code of Ethics? Is it just a basic understanding of what it is or are you expected to know all set measures for each value?
  9. Police Scotland Recruitment

    Haha mrsveedub I've just realised i said 1 knife 2 lives but you obviously knew what I was head is mince. Think i have enough job knowledge so yip will get stuck into the competencies, although also struggling with them. How did you manage to think of examples that would suit many questions?

    Aargh guys help!! Information overload and I'm not taking anything in. I remember the last time I applied it was exactly the same, tried to take in too much and messed up. So heres what i'm studying - Division info (commander, priorities, wards etc) - trying to read up on where I live and also where i've applied but it's too much so should I just stick to where I live? Diversity & Equality Code of Ethics, Vision, Values & Purpose Partnership working Specialist units Current campaigns - really struggling with this as only found 1 knife 2 lives and Run, Hide, Tell. Any others? I've found loads but they're all old National priorities Probationer timetable Rank structure CC - do I need to know assistant, deputy etc Competencies Please help before I crack up. Am I covering everything?

    Hi mrsveedub. The feedback I received was really positive but she said I came across as being a little naive. I know exactly where I messed up......"what is the role of a police officer" on earth could I not answer that? I personally think I just let my nerves get the better of me and I waffled quite a bit. I'm more nervous this time but I'm going to do my best to relax, sit back, listen to the interviewers and keep my responses short and to the point. Good luck and let me know how you get on.

    Eek Buttons24 thats a long time to wait, must be to do with the Divisions you've applied for. I applied for V & J in September and received confirmation that I'd passed paper sift in November. Previously passed SET so had initial fitness couple of weeks ago and passed. Initial interview in 4 weeks, very nervous as this is where I messed up last time. Hope you hear something soon. Keep us updated.
