Stage 2 assessments

Hi All,

I have my Stage 2 booked in for next week. I have previously read that NATS will send you some documentation to read through about aircraft/stats and you will get tested on this as part of the day. I haven't received anything other than my confirmation of the date. Has anyone else received this additional documentation/information or is this no longer part of the stage 2 assessments?

Kind regards

Hi Lmox.

You no longer receive any additional information and there's no aircraft tests just the FEAST and DART tests.

All the best for stage 2!

How to apply

Hi,

Can anyone help me out with this? I get into the NATS website and click on the section where it says "how to apply" and click on APPLY NOW.

Then I put my email + password and it sends me to another page where it says "NATS careers:Vacancies systems" (search openings, event invitations, etc..). I filled out my profile with my personal details.

Is there anything else I have to do?

I´m asking this because it says:

"When you click apply, you’ll be asked to register and then complete an online application form. This may take up to an hour, so make sure you’re able to work undisturbed. Our recruitment administration team will communicate with you by email, so please make sure you check your inbox and any junk or spam folders.
If you meet our minimum requirements, we’ll invite you to take an online test. Make sure that you’re in an undisturbed environment and can complete the assessment in full."


I maded this a couple of months ago, does it take too long to get the invitation?


It will be a little bit weird not to be elegible because I did pass Stage 1 (online test) a couple of years ago but couldn´t attend to Stage 2.


So, am I missing something?

Thank you

Hi a28.

I got a response with a link to the online test within half an hour and in the middle of the night.

I would go back to your application and just make sure its been submitted properly.

Cool Stage 3

Hi guys, I have recently found this forum and there have been some helpful posts, thanks!

I've passed stage 2 and got my stage 3 interview in Feb.
On the email it says 'competency based interview' but on a document I found on the NATS site it says there is also a group exercise. Is there anyone who has recently done stage 3 who can tell me what is involved in stage 3? That document might be out of date, but wanted to check.

Also, 8am - 4pm seems a long time for interviews, so I assume there is quite a bit of waiting around?

Thanks!

Hi everyone,

I would appreciate any information on the format of stage 3 also. I've read there is a lot of waiting around, but can't figure out if the group exercise is still included or not.

Looking forward to it!

AJ

Hi all doing stage 3,

Done my stage 3 few days ago, there is no longer a group exercise but there is a LOT of waiting around with nothing do! I highly recommend taking a book or cards or something. There's also no phone signal, 4G or WiFi.

We got asked not to talk about the interview so I'm going to respect that and won't be answering any questions related to it, but good luck to you all!

Are people called in by alphabetical order or did it seem random? Can you leave as soon as your interview is over?

How long after completing stage 1 did you hear if you had made it to stage 2? I completed stage 1 a week ago but have heard nothing since

It's random, and you have to wait until everyone's had their interview before you're allowed to leave.

Just completed part 1 online tests

Hey guys, I just did the first online test, how long does it take them to reply back saying whether you have passed or not?

It's been about 30 min now
