The ongoing challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic mean we have suspended all face-to-face selection activity. We are continuing with selection activity that can be completed remotely, in order to meet the needs of the courts and tribunals. This includes launching selection exercises, receiving applications, shortlisting and video interviews.
Alternative, remote, arrangements to replace face-to-face selection days are being used and candidates will be contacted directly by us to explain the process for their particular exercise. In the interests of candidate, panel member and staff wellbeing we expect that selection days will be held remotely until at least March 2021. The introduction of remote interviewing, necessitated by the COVID-19 situation, has been successfully implemented to date. A continuation of this approach will also allow us to fully evaluate the use of remote interviewing for the future across a range of jurisdictions.
Our Business Strategy 2020-23, containing our 2020-21 Business Plan, outlines how we will be responding over the coming months to the COVID-19 outbreak.
We recognise that the current circumstances mean that some candidates may encounter difficulties in completing parts of the remote selection process and, so far as it is possible, we will help candidates with alternative arrangements.
If you are unable to complete any part of our remote process as a result of COVID-19-related issues, please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss potential alternative arrangements.
This information will be updated on a regular basis.
