    NICS Administrative Officer (AO) Recruitment Competition 16th Nov 17 at 6:31 PM
    Hello folks

    I recently passed an interview for an AO competition in the Civil Service. This was actually from an AO recruitment competition that had originally came out in 2013 (I got a 51 week temporary contract from it originally) and although I didn't score high enough at the written test at that time, they did further interviews last month for people who didn't originally get through in 2013.

    Has anyone else here passed the interview and if so have you received your merit number?

    I know someone who got notified recently that they had passed the interview. He said he wasn't given any merit number.

    The guy I know asked for his merit number from HR Connect two weeks ago but has heard nothing. Can I ask how long it took for you to get yours?

    All depends on business needs and if some places need to fill a lot of staff quickly. I waited 5 months for my fixed term EO2 call up where I currently am, but i was much lower down the list, and roughly 18 people started on my first day. I would say with Christmas coming up you woul be hard pressed to hear anything until mid January
