Can I ask if most of your interviews are for contract positions in the civil service? Not permanent?
I think itís quite common now. Especially during this covid period, economy isnít doing well. Able to get job offer is a blessing. Moreover, itís employer market now.

If HR sent me for health check but say cannot yet commit an offer, what does this imply? From a stat board.

From then on, I havenít heard from them until last Mon, the HR called me and said theyíre conducting reference check. Was a bit baffled because I thought the check should have been done earlier? At least at the point after the interview or when they sent the medical questionnaire. Took them close to a month to start on the reference check from the date of my interview.

In the call, the HR person told me that he is also in the midst of putting up a submission, but also said that it doesnít mean I will confirm get the offer. Anyone knows how long will this take and what does it mean?

So, just want to know how likely am I getting the offer? Getting a bit worried because Iíve seen peopleís offer getting rescinded even after completing and passing everything.

Went for round 2 interview. No verbal offer yet nor referral check conducted. The role isn't a health related if you're wondering.

Is there a possibility where HR in the civil service will offer you a verbal/formal contract without conducting reference check?

I'm curious on this too, especially after formal offer stage. I do see ppl commenting no reference check here after formal offer. (at least thats what they claim referrers not contacted)

Default CCAs

Hi everyone! Does anyone know if civil service departments prefer individuals with CCA records? I am a graduating uni student with no CCA records in both uni and poly and I am curious as to whether I stand a chance in getting a job in the govt sector, esp in the uniformed services.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you

Uniformed services tend to prefer CCA records as they would know more about you in that manner - if you have good teamwork or can be in a leadership role etc. However, if you have previous internships or volunteering experience, that would be good too.

Uniformed services with a degree can be quite competitive, so that's how that might distinguish you from the others.
