Re: Online/Telephone Career Advice

Apparently I should be a chef. Perhaps I am well suited to that job, apart from the whole not being that great a cook thing.

Re: Video Interviews

It sounds like video interviews have been tough for lots of people, it's completely understandable. Be kind to yourselves, no one expected it to be this way, and you won't be the only ones who struggled. And remember that everyone had to do interviews this way, and while it might have suited some mo...

Re: 2020 Clinical Doctorate Application Progress Thread

Hi all, First time applicant, Sheffield Lancaster UEA Bangor Interview was a tough cookie...I think my offer to interview and success was due to really believing and chiming with the values and specialisms of the University I got selected for - I would personally consider this something absolutely ...

Re: Unsuccessful application? Want a post-mortem of your form?

If it's still in your outbox then it hasn't been opened by the receiver yet (who sounds like they've got a lot to get through!).

Re: Coronavirus

Most of my anxiety around this is personal. I'm in a high risk group myself and not getting very far at work with adapting working arrangements yet (unless I'm actually sick - and, if I'm sick, I'm likely to be critically ill so that becomes a bit moot). It's a scary time to be a human person just ...

Re: Coronavirus

Good idea to contain to a thread. I work in older adult community mental health services (including but not limited to dementia services), and older adult mental health inpatient wards (including a dementia ward). The implications for our clients and our way of working with them feels overwhelmingly...

Re: Essex interview feedback 2019

Food for thought, Spatch. I dislike a false dichotomy as much as the next person, but it doesn't feel that false when you literally don't see any clients for a week because you're spending your time reading applications, interviewing, and giving feedback. Still, nobody dies cos they don't have a the...

Re: Essex interview feedback 2019

I was contacted for the first time this year with a request to help with shortlisting. I am really passionate about helping aspiring CPs, and with the whole recruitment process. I would have loved to have been involved with shortlisting... But I had to turn it down because I didn't feel that I would...

Re: UEA / University of East Anglia Interview

... what's the long term plan? I don't really know offhand what policies or documents would be useful. I'm a dementia specialist, so I could tell you about what's relevant there, but I'm not sure that would be hugely useful. Looking at the government website and taking a look at the most recent docu...

Re: UEA / University of East Anglia Interview

While you may not be asking for specific questions, you are asking for specific info about the interview, e.g. will they ask about X. This is against forum rules. Regardless, I would recommend doing some reading round NHS policies and issues. You've got an interview for a three year employment contr...

Re: Deductive reasoning screening tests discussion

This is an interesting and important discussion, but have moved it to its own thread to ensure it doesn't detail the progress thread, and so any potential inaccurate info isn't the first thing people see when coming to the forum (as we know a lot of new users start with the progress thread).

Do you need to have a HCPC for an assistant psychologist/research assistant role?
No. Also, job adverts will usually say if some sort of registration is required.
