Commercial Affairs Officer
 
Hi all! Does anyone have any clue on how the recruitment process is like? How long does it usually take for them to notify you on the interview? Also, is it true that this role requires accounting background?

Thanks!

I was offered last year. I do not have an accounting background but many people who turned up in the interviews did. The most common profile was big four auditors with 2-4 years exp. The CAD website states which backgrounds they consider acceptable. I applied in April, attended a pre-interview session in July, an assessment session in late July and a formal interview in early August. Was offered in September... Pay wise, 3.5k++ for fresh grad. Cheers.

Did you take up the offer in the end? If so, how's the working environment at CAD? Were the interview questions tough?

Unregistered 09-11-2015 06:56 PM

Went for the pre-interview but felt that the job scope wasn't for me, but they are very open about their job and what it entails. There will be opportunities for you to ask questions during the session - and use it. For the interviews, my advice is to get a good idea of why YOU want the job :)

Thanks for the reply!

That's a very long wait! How long did they take to first call you up? I applied last month and my status on the website has changed to shortlisted but I have not received any information from them yet.

Do you have any prior working experience too?

Not at all. With no email or any contacts, I can't ask them for updates too. Anyone received any information yet?

No I didn't. I do know a couple of friends working there though. Interview questions were to the point but straightforward.

One comment that I wanted to make was that I felt that the people there aren't dressed very smartly as compared to private sectors (banks etc). I wasn't impressed by the office building nor the dress code.

Those who are called to the interview ranged from fresh grads to year 4 audit associates at big 4 audit firms. Nearly everyone had accounting, biz or law background.

nothing much. just a sharing session and you do a short written test. i think i scribbled a few paragraphs in 30mins and left.... saw people writing pages of stuff though.

Unregistered 24-12-2015 09:55 AM

Has anyone received any update from the previous application?

Unregistered 09-12-2016 10:15 AM

Hi there, when does the application for CAD open?

Been searching through the application page but the hasn't been a position in CAD open for months.

How did you guys submit your applications?

Thanks!

Status updates for CAO
 
HR called few days back to say they are keen to bring me on board but requires around 2 more weeks to update me on the process. What does that mean?

Went to 1st round interview on 13 June then Final interview on 21st June.

Anyone in similar situation before?

Hi Bro, may I know when did you apply for this job? I am aware the job application closing date was stated as 7th July 2017. I applied for this on the 5th of July but have not received a call from them.

This is aggravating because I was offered a role in compliance for 3.3k 6 months contract only and do not know if I should take it up.

Hope to hear from you ASAP!

Thanks

Unregistered 10-07-2017 06:31 PM

I applied in April and was only called in early June. I guess it might be better for you to apply when the next posting of CAO vacancy pops up. They are really slow in processing applications.

kraphael 10-07-2017 06:43 PM

thank you for the advice!

Unregistered 03-08-2017 04:45 PM

same situation

Unregistered 13-08-2017 03:08 PM

Same. They say one of the clearing units were quite slow in processing. But just need to wait, they say very soon will be able to offer. See you there!

Unregistered 14-08-2017 03:47 PM

I got the call from HR around 3 weeks ago as well and he actually said that it can take up to 4 months after the date of interview for the background checks and processing... Hopefully it will not be that long. Really want to leave my current job soon.

Unregistered 15-08-2017 11:30 AM

same here. after checking in with HR over 3 calls, he said it'll take prob 4 to 6 months from last interview date to offer. anyway, please update here if you guys got the offer call!! thanks!

Can anyone advise how I can apply for CAD as CAO? I've been monitoring the [email protected] site for awhile but haven't seen any listings for it. Do you guys apply through the portal or direct via email to HR? Thanks in advance!

You need to check the [email protected] website more frequently. They do not have a fixed application period and applications will open only when they need people.

Unregistered 23-03-2018 01:16 PM

Anyone got any updates? Went for the pre-interview session about 3 weeks ago now.
