Got an email today stating my application has been put on hold due to a new Female only application process. With 4000 applicants in the pipe line its a fair assumption that a straight white male wont be graduating from the College any time soon. Will we have to resort to saying we are transgendered lesbians? How do they actually check or enforce peoples sexual, cultural or ethnic backgrounds?

With the ADF, AFP, QLDpol all going down the same route is it safe to say all government agencies are no going to adopt this 50/50 quota rule?

Everything is now 50/50 in the AFP. Courses have been cancelled cos they can't reach the quota.

So they don't run a course until they can fully field a 50/50 course panel?

This is insanity. Should I bother with the NSW Police then, seeing as how their recruitment process will cost me money.

Yep, but don't bag Broderick or the review that was based off a third of the organisation participating.

But get this for consistency, the latest Sgt position applications were all done as blind applications so they won't know any details. Ie sex, race, age, name

I can see some muppets getting a gig because they can bull shit in an application but can't put it in practice

I can't believe NSW make you pay to train. The best pay is NT but it's NT lol

Yes you have do a $1500 short course at uni before you can even start the application. Then assuming they let you through you go into their fluctuating merit pool. Basically meaning you may never get selected as your score isnt fixed.

Also more on the original post

Theres quite a massive shit storm about it on facebook atm. The feds are trying to prove that what they are doing isnt discriminatory. I know I shouldn't have commented on it but its fair to say my chances of getting in are already over based on my skin colour and orientation.

Crow II, stay the course mate. If you want to get in just remain patient.

Also, I wasn't doubting you about the NSW academy, hard to impart tone via text. I just think it's shit you need to pay to get in.

The big political push for equality without actually having equality :partyman:

This would be a very good topic for a service paper.

Whats the point? They have stopped taking men, they have frozen mine and alot of other male applications too as a direct result of this, Ill upload the email later. They want a 50/50 quota system, the AFP recruit once a year, they take about 40 people for their ACT police roles and they've had 4000 applications. Do the maths. Not only that back in June they said in that application they wanted 40% of those applicants to be transgendered or homosexual. So realistically theres really only tiny percentage of billets open to Men.

Theres no hope anymore for straight men. And all this when Im about to walk of the door of the ADF. Shit I doubt I'll even be allowed to transfer to a different role or get back into the ARA in the near future either seeing as how all the billets are now reserves for women. Disgrace.
