Written application, Workplace test,General ability test, recorded interview, assessment centre. Incredibly slow and uninformative. Information about each stage is passed across slowly. Invitations to next stage sometimes only allowed a few days in between with little flexibility.

Application

I applied online. The process took 4 months. I interviewed at Transport for London in May 2021

Interview

Applied online with cover letter, was invited to a situational judgement test. Did not hear back for another 3 months, where I was invited to a video interview with only a couple of pre-recorded questions around motivations for applying to TfL and the scheme. I then received an invite to an assessment day, consisting of a competency interview and technical test. I did not get a good impression from the interviewers, as I was cut off trying to ask questions about the scheme. Seems to be a general lack of ambition with much of the software developed by external providers. Asked for feedback but did not get a response despite them advertising that it is available.

Interview

You can apply with a 2.2 in any subject. The online assessment are very different to any other I've taken. If you have taken the tesco assessments, its really similar to that. The numerical assessment was timed, 36 minutes to do around 30 questions I think. Make sure you do the practice test beforehand.
