    Policy Advisor Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Cabinet Office (London, England) in August 2016.


    Very relaxed interview, two interviewers who made me feel very at ease and comfortable. Plenty of explanation at the beginning as to what the process would be, clear instructions as to what was expected of me in my answers and what they would be looking for. The questions were all competency based and revolved around the responses I'd given in my application. Also asked why I wanted the role and the position and what my background was (their system is such that they can't see your CV or employment details - just your name).
