    I applied online. I interviewed at Hertfordshire County Council.

    Interview

    3 person panel, pretty basic. Each of them had a turn at asking questions, they didn't seem to be interested in anyone being too adventurous, my ideas weren't warmly welcomed. Probably looking for someone safe who will do the job and no more than that and doesn't have too many ambitions.
