Public Appointments Service
As the Deputy will be aware, the Public Appointments Service (PAS) is the independent, statutory body that provides professional recruitment and selection services to the civil service. It establishes panels from recruitment competitions, with candidates ranked in order of merit, that are available to civil service employers to access as and when vacancies may arise while the panel is in place.
All recruitment is demand led and placement on a PAS recruitment panel is not a guarantee of appointment to a civil service position.
I would advise that the candidate contact PAS directly for an update on his position on the relevant panel established from this recruitment competition.
