Hi guys,

I had an interview a couple weeks ago, I have the Pat2 this coming Friday with potential medicals the following week. I heard they interviewed 60, plus there’s a few leftover from the squad in currently. Be interesting to know how many got through to the Pat2. Potentially enough for 2 more squads?

Best of luck to everyone still in the mix!

Hi all
Anyone have any idea as to how many still left in the interview stage? I had my interview this week. I heard that there may be a squad starting in September from this current interview batch, anyone know any different?
Cheers

Hi all, first post on this forum. Yes I've also heard there is a squad starting Sept, possible PAT2 by end of June?? Did you hear back about your interview James8441?

I too got an email saying my application will not be progressed, they specifically state this result remains valid for 2 years and will expire in July 2020 at which time I can reapply again.

So even if they do reopen applications this year those of us receiving this email are ineligible to reapply.

Hi mate. This is my first forum so apologies for any mistakes. My email said as a consequence of my interview result, I won’t be progressing. Results remain on file for two years and am not required to submit an application in this time. I 99% read this the same as you but have heard of people being ramped in the past and have the smallest hope that I could be looked at again, or that “not required” means that I could reapply. Does yours say the same? Or does it actually say your aren’t allowed to?

My email may have been slightly different to yours, I never got up to the interview stage and was still in the keep fit pool after the personality profiling and abilities assessment. The email I got did specifically state "Your application lifecycle expires in July 2020, during which time you are ineligible to reapply".
It's not going to hurt to keep your eyes peeled on both this forum and the SAMFS website but after going through several recruitment processes in the past I really wouldn't get your hopes up. It sounds as though they still have a lot of people at different stages of the recruitment process to call upon and the MFS website indicates they will be taking in new applications later in the year which will expand the competition even further.
The good news is that from everything I've heard they will be taking on squads fairly regularly over the next couple of years, so as long as you don't mind a bit of waiting there will be other opportunities.

The wording is a bit broad. When did you get your email?

Apparently there is a squad in at the moment and it's frustrating for all of us who are in the keep fit pool.
I've heard that they will be running another squad prior to the end of the year and was wondering if anyone has news on whether the candidates have already completed their pat 1 or will they be using people from the keep fit pool and getting them to do their run.

Many from the keep fit pool have received better luck next time letters so your assumption is incorrect. Unfortunately it would be too costly and time consuming to interview 4-500 or more applicants.

I was talking about those left after the recent cull of the "keep fit" pool.
