Average Interview
Application

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Devon County Council (Tiverton, South West England, England, England) in Apr 2017

Interview

I applied through the standard DCC application form and when I was accepted for an interview I had to do a quick online test (took 30 mins) to prove I could use basic office software and see how quick I could proof read. They do not check these results before you interview. The interview day I met with other social work team resource officers who explained the job and answered any questions - they also check you out to see if you will fit in nicely in the office. After this I went down and had a 45 minute interview with a panel of three managers, asked questions which you score points against. Before all this you are sent bits about the job to read up and it really helped me prepare answers for my interview. When the Interview was over I was told to be expecting a call Monday however they did try to call me the same day ( I missed the call eek) and accepted my position when they finally did get hold of me.
