The following is for DEI (I think DES is also somewhat similar)

HR interview is done via phone call, where they will explain to you the overall job scope, such as working hours and responsibilities of the job. You will be ask to give a self introduction and why you are interested in joining ica. The HR interview is generally manageable, you should be able to pass it if you are able to show that you are interested in joining ica.

Panel interview is done via online video call. At the start, you will most probably be asked similar questions like in the HR interview, like giving self introduction and why you want to join ica. The remaining questions will depends on how you answers the first few questions. Question can varies depending on your personal resume, such as working experience, leadership experience. Be prepared to justify your answers as they may be use against you.

I applied ICA already hopefully join you guys soon. Bt tbh with so many applications we competing with so many good applicants hopefully I will get in. If its not Covid no one wanna join not so bad.

Like I have friends who was from SPF not accepted by SPF but people from SCDF can get it. But u wont understand the pain truly unless ure from SPF NS and they reject u but accept ur admin army friend instead no matter how much u excel in SPF last time x)

There's more than meet the eye to the process like physical attributes and personality rather than past experience.

Also I think even before covid got alot people want to join le.

Good luck 🤞

I applied for both ICA & SPF as I am interested in the job scope of both organisation.
The primary role of both organisation is to keep Singapore safe & secure, the only difference is that ICA deals with border security while SPF is mainly about fighting crime.
