Administrative assistant interview questions shared by candidates
What cartoon character would you be and why.

The format of the day was planned as follows:- Part 1 - Completion of a case study - The aim of this was to assess the candidate's ability to demonstrate the competencies; 'Managing a Quality Service' and 'Delivering at Pace'. Part 2 - A group exercise assessing your skills in 'Making Effective Decisions' and 'Collaborating and Partnering'. Part 3 - An informal interview to allow you to demonstrate your suitability for the post. (You need to refer to the Civil Service Competency Framework for further assistance). Whilst the assessment centre was planned to last up to 3 hours, candidates who did not meet the level required at the assessment stage did not go through to the next stage and will be unsuccessful this time. It is therefore crucial that you hit the ground running at the assessment centre.
