    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Ofcom (London, England) in February 2020.

    Interview

    1-Online video, 2_ essay, 3-Assessment centre. Online test was fine. For essay writing we were given 3 questions and write essay for two of them (Optional 2).
    interview in the assessment centre was 9:30-4:30. Such a tiring procedure. In the afternoon we were given a group task which was the worst one. Examiners would stare at us while doing the tasks. Chasing us what we are saying, and how we do the task. Very annoying. I wish I could leave the center.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Ofcom in November 2019.

    Interview

    Online one-way video interview.
    The Entire Ofcom process is four steps - online application, video interview, essay, and finally an assessment centre . The video interview was very short - it just required answering three questions. but be aware, unlike some other video interviews, it does not allow a 'retake' in case you make a mistake in your video..
