  3. Thanks for the info Stigy, I was worried about it in the way of the mortgage company seeing a search rather than the police seeing a mortgage so thank you!

  6. Interview Prep

    I've recently been thorugh the interview process and found this link to be really helpful when thinking of answers for the competency based questions. I was also really nervous but just prepare the best you can and you'll settle in to the interview once you've started! Good Luck!
  7. Thanks for the reply Bravo4juliet, I thought it might be that way that it won't show the police search but just wanted to ask
  8. That's what I was hoping! It's all ended up happening at the same time!
  9. perfect thank you! Thanks for the well wishes as well
  10. Hello, I recently passed my interview stage of application and i am now moving on to the pre employment check stage. The question i have is, When the police do these checks what kind of credit check do they do? I'm asking this as i'm right in the middle of buying a house and have had a mortgage approved and just don't want anything to damage my credit file before i actually receive the funds as the mortgage company may do one last credit check before they release the funds. In my head it shouldn't affect anything as i'm not applying for credit, its just the police searching my credit history. Does anyone have any idea? Many thanks!

    Thanks for that link to the competencies, it's really helpful! Just busy making notes on each competency now so I can be prepared for any that they ask for!

    Thanks everyone for the advice! Bravo4Juliet - I have not been told which specific competencies I will be tested on. Just 'the generic competencies of a special' any idea of the best way to learn what these are? And also what I feel I can contribute to the force values. Also any other advice you might be able to pass on for the interview? I have been reading up about the STAR method which seems effective!

    Bravo4Juliet - sorry for the late reply but it looks like hecarim has answered your question! Hecarim - my interview is on October 20th at headquarters. Still trying to think of a suitable police related topic to use for my presentation!
