Interview

Initially, there is a detailed application form which asks about experience against key skills set out in HMLR documentation (ensure you cover all key behaviours). Online tests which included both verbal and numerical. Following those tests I had a 1 hour panel style interview (online) about research skills. Format for this was very situationally based and I was measured against key behaviours.

Interview Questions
  • Scenario task - how would you approach the research?

Application

I applied online. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at HM Land Registry (London, England, England)

Interview

For people who are meant to put participants at ease in order to elicit good responses as their day job they failed completely! The interview process was chaired by a woman clearly only appointed due to typical civil service box ticking exercises being of various minorities. Her approach was abrupt and seemed a nightmare to alongside. When I asked her basic questions she fumbled and was uncertain how to answer the question so directed it back to me. For someone who is meant to the lead of the division I felt she not knowledgeable nor capable. They should have kept an eye on the interview and were charged with timekeeping without blaming the candidate. Another interviewer kept interrupting me as I was giving my answer and it would have been more sensible for the candidate to be given the opportunity to talk and then for the interview to ask further follow up questions where appropriate. Does not seem like a nice inclusive workplace which wishes to empower their employees.

Interview

Very Opaque process, even though they score feedback on interview competency questionnaire. You don't know who is going to interview, and you will be surprised at what they want. A surprise task, prepare a 10 minute presentation in 30 mins covering 4 main areas. At the beginning the secretary asks whether or not you have your presentation ready, but they failed to communicate this in the interview pack (red flag, why would they do this????) Approach, key analysis, recommendation and plan. The scope appears to be very broad. (second red flag... A strategic approach is not welcome at this stage). Going over the allotted time is a big red mark.... A panel interview, one director , head of department and another "stakeholder", 6 competency questions, 2 per panel member.

Interview Questions
  • Describe your approach to developing relationships Describe a time where you added value.
