I don’t see any reason for you to think you have been unsuccessful. We’re in the middle of a holiday period and they are probably just working through a very large pile. It doesn’t sound like there is any particular order. Think positive

Give them time Penny I’m sure you’ll hear back in the new year since it’s still the festive season

I submitted fitness test and did the online bits 5th December and heard back yesterday, 14 years service so sure everyone will
be hearing results over the next couple of weeks. Others probably had similar deadline to me so sure there will be plenty they have to work through!
Fingers crossed for all 🤞👍

Very brave (and big) move with service in that bracket. I did a similar move with 18 years service and don't regret it one bit. Best of luck. A better lifestyle awaits you, trust me.

I have received an interview date today. 3rd week January.
I have over 20 years service.
I provided all my HR (service, sickness, PDR) with my initial application.
I submitted all my forms and tests 6 Dec. They are obviously slowly working through.
Good Luck everyone.
Here’s hoping 2023 ends in a warmer place !

Just a quick one for those with interviews.

When I was interviewed back in 2007ish, I found the focus mainly based on whether I knew what I was committing to. What research had I done, was I sure I wanted to fly over and start from scratch. I told them I had friends in WA (support network), been out to visit, researched the role, put my house up for sale, family were informed and I was looking for a new life and career. They bought it…

Now I’ve heard a whisper, that the powers that be are concerned that the people they bring over will quit on day one and go and get a job elsewhere.

They may or may not be looking for you to convince them that you’re committed to policing and not just going to jump ship and work on a mine site.

Not sure how they will decide on your commitment, but I would suggest having the support of your family, being a career copper and having done your homework (watching the film ‘The Castle’) as to the problems in WA would be a good start.

Best of luck you you all and always remember ‘TJF’.

What they have sent looks like a competency based interview.

Hi thanks for the info.

where has the concern of jumping ship come from?

Not sure if I have missed anything but as far as I can see part of your visa you would get ties you to WA police for 2 years so I would have thought of you do that and quit day one you have no visa, your gone.

hopefully that’s just a rumour going around.but you Got me worried they’ll pull the plug last minute now.

That's correct. The visa that successful applicants will be on is the Employer Nomination Scheme (subclass 186) Labour Agreement scheme. It's a permanent resident visa. The overview page for this visa is here https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/visa...tream#Overview
You can click through for more information, including the expectation that the visa holder will work for their nominating employer for at least 2 years.

There have been cases of people on this visa (not necessarily police officers) not completing the full 2 years and not having their visa cancelled, but they need to demonstrate that they applied for their visa in good faith, were fully committed to working in the job for 2 years, and that their relationship with their employer has irretrivably broken down. A bit hard for someone to demonstrate all that if they pull the pin day one!
