Anyone any idea how often they advertise these positions?

What roles have people been interviewed for? Specialist posts or normal policing?

Did you apply for a team role Sminty? What type of questions did they put out and do you know did the interviews? Always worth checking out their LinkedIn if they have one lol

I did apply for team.
The interview was very similar to our ones. All competency based. For obvious reasons I won't be giving specific questions.

The appointment is for 3 years ( renewable dependant on performance)'
I don't think you would get a career break for that long

I would try mate, I know for me leaving here for a 3 year contract which may not be renewed would be too risky.

I would state that by not allowing you too work on a career break it is interfering with your human rights

Article 8 Respect for your private and family life

Protocol 1, Article 2 Right to education ( using your experience on Cayman working with a small diverse population and can bring those skills back bla bla bla)

Most human resources get scared when people mention breaching human rights.lol.

So. On Monday I was offered a post however, I have turned it down. They offered me a starting point wage despite me having 20years service. Once you deduct your rent bills and General living costs, it doesn't leave you with much.
Has anyone else been offered ?
