Anyway here’s a heads up for those vying for DBS.

Need to complete Predictive Index Assessment by 20th September. If successful, they will be sending interview invites by 23rd September.

From past experience, if you don’t get any invite, don’t lose hope cos last minute before deadline surely got some FI will email you. I know cos last year I got some last minute interview by SCB.

Like that, how we can convert to new career, as most of us will not have experience in the Role, thats why we joining this program as starter, but not even have a chance if FI not keen to give chance for non experience.
I think the program is very competitive. If totally no relevant skillsets will be hard. :(
