Hi! My first post on here - so forgive me if this is in the wrong forum. I'm in the process of a skills assessment for a pastry cook and recently received a request for video evidence. The thing is I have no such video and there is no way I can get it, as my employers would never allow a camera onto the bakery floor. My agent says it is highly unusual that they would ask for video evidence as that is one of the more obscure options. What I'm wondering is, has anyone else had a similar experience? How did it pan out? I'm just wondering if they're building up to a rejection? Thanks for reading! Cheers, Adrian
They want a general video of all the core competencies. I did ask if a home video would be acceptable, but they've written back saying no. They said i could get them an even more detailed reference from my former employers, so I'll just have to talk to them and find out if they'll give me one.
Hi, I'm not in the same boat but for a while it looked like I would be. I wasn't sure my ex employers would agree to give me a reference. They did in the end. What my agent told me was it isn't ideal, but it's not the end of the world. I would have to write the stat declaration in as much detail as possible and then back it up with other evidence, like payslips, tax records showing you were in the company's employ, etc. A technical interview would be required too. That's all I can remember for now, but you should probably consult a professional before doing anything.
