WHAT IS THE CIVIL SERVICE?

The Civil Service play a significant role as part of the Government. They help to develop and implement new policies and strategies within society to ensure a diverse and equal community. People who work for the Civil Service are ‘officials’ who work under Government surveillance. They are co-ordinated and monitored by the Prime Minister to guarantee that policies are met, and procedures are enforced.

This Civil Service Testing book will help you find your way to success in regards to passing the initial stages of the Civil Service recruitment process. Foremost, this book has been specifically designed to ensure that you are fully prepared for the qualifying exams and give you that edge over other competing candidates.

The Civil Service uses four key values to assess candidates:

  • Integrity = the ability to put obligations of the public service above personal interests and/or beliefs.
  • Honesty = being able to demonstrate high levels of truthfulness and openness.
  • Objectivity = being able to display objective views and opinions on certain areas. Basing decisions and policies on rigorous analysis and evidence to form a plausible and valid outcome.
  • Impartiality = being able to serve the power of the Government in charge and meet the needs and merits in which they enforce.

ABOUT THE CIVIL SERVICE

They primarily provide a service directed to all the people across the country in order to support and assist issues such as:

  • Paying benefits
  • Healthcare
  • Providing pension schemes
  • Operating effective prison systems
  • Issuing driving licenses and a range of other important development policies

The Civil Service are impartial and objective people regarding political movements. The service that they provide does not reflect a certain political party. It merely demonstrates a non-political stance that is used to effectively maintain and enhance community procedures and policies. In other words, even if the leading Government and political party changes; this has no effect on the Civil Service. The Civil Service remains unaffected and serves the Government in power.

This learning aid is designed for people who want to become part of the Civil Service. If you are about to take or thinking about taking the Civil Service Tests, you need to establish whether you are cut out for the role.

The aim of this book is simple. It gives clear and detailed information on everything you will need to know regarding the selection process and the routes available into the Civil Service.

How2Become Psychometric Testing Tip 1

TIP 1

The personality and attitude tests do not have wrong or right answers. However, they could impact your application. Although you want to answer them truthfully, you need to remember that your application will be assessed on your answers regarding your behaviour, personality and attitude towards social situations.

TIP 2

The situational awareness test requires a considerable amount of attention to detail. Pay attention and read through everything carefully. Do not skim through the information as you may miss something that could be vital in choosing the correct answer.

Really useful book to understand more about what to expect from the psychometric tests and e-tray exercises.

Very helpful.

I bought this book in the hope to get some kind of an idea on what my fast stream test will be like in February. After testing myself on the questions inside I was pleasantly surprised at how accurate and in depth the book is. The test questions really give you an idea on what to expect and the quality of writing is to a high standard.

How2Become.com-testimonial-02

Makes you feel much more prepared for your assessments and it gives you a brief summary of the assessment centres too. It also gives you access to online psychometric tests which are pretty much identical to what is in the book, but it gets you used to the online format which is helpful.
