Difficult Interview
Application

I applied online. The process took 2 months. I interviewed at Civil Service United Kingdom (Birmingham, England, England)

Interview

An hour long interview which was fairly straight forward. Asked competency based questions, and also scenario based questions. They had combined two competency based questions together and asked me, which threw me off since I had two different examples prepared for the two separate questions.

The interview process went really smoothly. I was asked some questions about my previous experience and my suitability for the programme. In terms of length, overall was an hour long and felt more like a conversation.

Interview

The interview was a box ticking exercise. It felt unnatural and did not facilitate conversation. It was held on Google meets and I was interviewed by two people. It felt unnatural and I felt I was unable to show my personality.

Interview Questions
  • I was asked the HO band questions.

Blended interview of quick fire and longer questions, which is apparently civil service norm. Same as questions in application so plenty of time to prepare. But be prepared to expand.

Interview

Applied online, was told there was no interview if i was selected i would be called just to choose which location i could work in. when i had the call i did that and it was very informal and quick, and at the end the lady said she will get in touch regarding when i start. next week i got a letter instead saying that i am not getting the position for no reason...although i had already been told i got it and would be starting soon. no explanation given. very rude and inconsiderate.
