yes obviously they have progressed people with longer service and have passed them at review panel. I’m just wondering where this ideal candidate thing comes into play. Someone made a very good point to me that the “ideal candidate” line may be a marketing tool but they will (and have already) be interested in longer service tool

I could be way off here, but looking at it logically. Younger in service constables would clearly be the target. It makes sense as they are still on the streets, still keen (should be) and more than prepared to be on nights on response sections.

The older in service, this naturally starts to change over time but it certainly doesn’t mean there are not really good candidates within that demographic who would be good if not better for varying reasons than the lesser service. They would also be less likely to leave IMO as they are pretty established in policing as a career at this point.

Interesting about length of service. I'm longer than that in service and personally think I'm a good bet. I mean I have a lot to give up, pension wise, but I clearly love the job and I'm willing to start a fresh as a constable. Some might argue they are more committed due to what longer in service are giving up?

WA would get someone with great front line experience, life experience, someone that could motivate and lead others. I'm not saying that shorter in service won't be like that, but I'm seeing people even more fed up and wanting to leave around the 3 to 7 years. Some aren't even in the pension, hate the grind of day to day front line and are leaving once they have policing degree, they do a conversion on the degree and get a better job. Add a bit of sun and once you've got permenant residence in Aus they would look to leave just like in the UK. Possibly.

But everyone will have different motives for going, whatever the length of service.

Still have fingers crossed here.

Lorna2345 has your husband heard yet?

Hi all,

I attended the info sessions, yes they clearly going to market a target audience. Who wouldn’t, it’s a sales pitch.

I could argue this all day.

whilst people who fit into the 3-7 years will clearly want to hear that (I would). I am of the opinion as they stated in the info session, it’s all about value for money and what the return will be.

46 years with 5 years service

35 years with 15 years service

surely the 35 year old with naturally more experienced, I wouldn’t say ability because that is a individual matter, however they are clearly going to be employed and working longer.

Each case with surely be determined on an individual basis. Good and bad for all cases.

Good luck to everyone who is going for the process,let’s just be positive about it all

If you get a visa so will your husband. If he is not accepted as part of the drive, he can still apply to join WAPOL based on PR

I’ve been following everyone’s post congratulations on those that have already started the process and have passed the initial stages and interview. I am looking into the process now and have booked onto one of the sessions.
I am stressing about the psychometric test, is anyone able to offer me any reassurance. I’ve read it says the English maths questions are none applicable does this mean you don’t need to complete them. Can anyone provide a link to a practice test just so I can see what it’s about ?

Sure did, back when it was a paper application. How times have changed. Never made the sift, I'll assume it was because I was in a specialist department at that time. I was promoted soon after that back to response so hopefully the outcome may be different this time.
