Hi, I had to take the language test about 1 month ago and was interviewed for the P2 Policy officer pool earlier this week. A friend of mine was actually interviewed for this same position 1 day before me. So I believe they pool together all the short-listed candidates for a post to be interviewed in the same week. After the interview, they suggest that the results will only be announced in 1-2 months from now.

I have recently been informed by WFP after successfully passing a written test and oral interview that I have been included in the National Talent pool for two years and will be informed in case of a position arises in the relevant position.

Anyone who has successfully gone through the same process and been subsequently recruited?

All greetings and hope I can meet someone here who has been through the FIT Pool for Supply chain and logistics.
I recently applied for a P3 position as Logistics and procurement officer. I must say I was successful in the primary screening stage and have been invited for an online assessment by Devex.

Has anyone been through this can you share what is to be expected? Is it the usual psychomeric tests by many of the test providers or its really job related?
Any info will be highly appreciated and tips based on past experience.

Regards,
Favori

I heard it is pretty much a set of standard assessments that go through the competencies, skills and experience required to do the job :lol: :lol: . I think there is a bit of time-pressure on the test. But I'm very interested in this myself. Please anybody who went through this, can you tell us more???? Thanks so muc!!!

Hey everyone!
Wondering if this thread is still active and if anyone is in the process for the M&E P2 position? I took the language test and am now waiting to hear back re: panel interview.
Has anyone done a panel interview and could provide some tips on the setting and the questions??

For M&E, the written technical test included several multiple choice questions and 2 case scenarios (1 related to monitoring and 1 related to evaluation).
The pre- recorded interview did ask for motivation (do the practice tests!!!)
Language test was pretty thorough and standardised, more than I had expected.

Any pointers in what to expect for the panel interview would be highly appreciated! Good luck for the ones out there are still in the process!
