    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Hertfordshire County Council (Stevenage, England) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Case study and left in a room to complete, this was current and appropriate to the role I was applying for. It was helpful to meet with HR and know about terms etc of the job and what things I could have, such as a lease car. Then the interview panel was two social work managers, who asked appropriate questions regarding my experience and skills and asked for previous case examples.

    Negotiation

    Very prompt, my manager kept me up to date regularly and even though I may not answer her calls due to being at my existing job would leave a message with the information for me to consider before I replied. They were very good with accommodating my requests and negotiating.
