If anyone knows anything about the DCA, which is The Department for Constitutional Affairs (I didn't know we had one being as we don't have a consitution and all that!) please can I pick your brains?
I have a second interview next week with a company associated with the DCA (it's not them though) and I need an edge so I want to thoroughly research this govt dept.
If you can help please post here or CAT me. I hope no-one minds if I keep bumping this up too. I'd also be terribly grateful for anyone who can help with bumping it! I so need this job (I have been giving laundrytips here ffs!) which is now between me and another woman. Who wasn't a SAHM for ages and therefore v likely has more recent experience.
TIA. You can email me at wickedwaterwitchy at hotmail dot com if it's quicker than a CAT.
Thank you so far! Okapi, thanks for the bump, Janh, thanks for the link, bk, ha ha! Tinks, nah, won't be a civil servant. Won't even be civil har de har. Bumping this again shamelessly. Have just spoken to the agent who said he will get me this job if it kills him. He's lovely and has sold me HARD but I still need to pull a blinder of an interview next week.
DCA used to be called the Lord Chancellors Department if that helps your research. What do you do www? I'm wondering if you're joining us - because I happen to work for a company which does a lot of work for DCA? I'm not directly on that project any more, but I spent about 18 months on it at the DCA offices in London.
And (I know you won't take this the wrong way) but are you sure that being absolutely brilliantly superchargededly professional at this interview is the right technique? I mean, if they aren't the sort of place to have a washing up fairy it might be worth suspending your belief in such things for the duration of the interview.
If you email me (jane dot reeves @ thomson dot com) I will forward your email to a friend of mine who has worked for the DCA (as a lawyer)for yonks. I can't make any promises and I may have to pretend that I know you in real-life, but she may be able and/or willing to help you as she is a lovely person and a WOHM.
