Further to article posted yesterday regarding the NICS EO2 competition I can confirm that, following NIPSA’s intervention, the issue has been satisfactorily resolved.

This morning NICSHR has confirmed that HR Connect will issue invites to test to those candidates who had not selected working pattern or location preferences.

The same decision will apply to all those who made the error in completion of working pattern or location preference in the already submitted EO1 application forms. For that reason, applicants to the EO1 competition should not seek to withdraw their application form.
