Hi all

 

I have my assessment next week to be a rejoiner for the Met. I was feeling fairly confident until i received the competencies for the interview and realised i had never seen it before and it was new!

 

Anyone experienced an interview under the new MPS Performance Framework before?

 

Operational Effectiveness, Organisational Influence, Resource Management.

 

I'm none the wiser as have been sat for 2 days trying to work out what questions they may ask and what I can give as examples however not knowing how long the interview will be, what on earth i could be asked................ i am getting worried!

Sorry I can't provide you with the answers you're looking for.

 

Do you know what intake you'd be on if successful? And where you'd hit the pay scale?

As far as i understand i continue from the last amount of service i finished on when i left. I hope! I don't know what intake i will be on, not even looking that far ahead as i need to just understand this interview first!

I'm in the same boat mate but as a transferee! Having looked at the framework that the interview is based around, parts of it seem like they are more suitable for a supervisor. Do you know who the interview will be with?! I've got my interview very soon so fingers crossed!

I am glad it isn't just me. I've got my assessment day on Tuesday, you on that as well? I don't even know how long this interview is or what examples are going to be suitable for this interview, you are right that it seem's it's for a supervisor?

 

Where are you transferring from?

Hi Steve

 

Mine is Tuesday so would love to hear how you did. How have you found the interview prep? I'm finding it hard to decipher what they may ask me with this new framework. Best of luck to you

I've got my interview next Monday and I'm also struggling to decipher the framework and what they might possibly ask. Can anyone provide any tips or feedback on the sort of examples they are after?

I'm glad it isn't just me. I've kinda based a lot of my examples on the old frame work as there are many similarities like leadership, communication, self motivation and race and diversity in the "statements" provided. I think if you have a few different examples for each it could be a sensible move. I really have no idea what to expect which is somewhat stressful!

If anyone can assist that would be great. However I fear it will come too late for me as I have my interview in less than 11 hours!

Hey I have had my interview and it was fine, last about 30-40 mins something like that. Nothing asked about race and diversity or such topics and the questions were not too bad

I failed the two assessors looked as though they were going to charge me and looked miserable ... As usual they asked me long winded complex questions that I had to try and fathom out as I have dyslexia (mild) ... Kept waiting for ages while the other 5 candidates went in together for there interview which I thought was strange... Kept waiting for ages after ... Knew then that I'd failed ... Gutted but will put in an appeal ... Told a lovely HR lady who escorted me out that if they would like to come and see how I police I'd gladly take them out on an friday and Saturday night and show them what risk assessment is !! Good luck guys and girls

Martinsea I'm so sorry to hear you failed I'll admit the interviewers didnt seem a barrel of laughs. I felt my answers were in a foreign language.

I seem to have gone blank as to what questions they asked me. But I recall them not being hard but more the questions were long and looking for a specific task you did in various situations.

I recall being asked about leadership but I can't remember the rest

Think also what you can offer the Met as obviously they want to know why you are leaving another force and why should they take you

Didn't think the interview is something that you can appeal, I can imagine their response to an appeal will be that you've had the MPS competency framework in advance of your interview, and that it should have been pretty clear what the interviewers were looking for. Would be interesting to see how an appeal goes though.

I understand your frustrations, it must feel strange being rejected for a job that you are already doing somewhere else!

These things are all about saying the right thing at the right time and ticking the boxes on the interviewers sheet. Just because you don't get it, doesn't mean you're no good. Worry not. I'm a bit nervous as anyone would be but going in with an open mind and knowing that you still have a pretty decent job at the end is the way forward I think. Bit philosophical that, think I need to sit down.

Martinsea, sorry to hear that. I'm still waiting to hear whether or not I've been successful. How long ago was your interview and have they told you that you were not successful or are you just assuming as you think you had a bad interview? Best of luck.
