    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview
    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Department for Work And Pensions (Bristol, England) in Aug 2020

    Interview

    I applied online, got offered an interview which was a video recorded interview. There were 5 competence-based Q's and 5 strengths based Q's. The competence questions were based off of the three skills you were told on the interview preparation email: making effective decisions, managing a quality service and communicating and influencing.
    Interview

    Would people describe you as someone who has a good sense of judgement

'I joined DWP four years ago, which was the best thing I could have done for my career progression. Prior to my move to the Civil Service, I worked for a couple of private firms where there was limited scope for development. Despite an initial decrease in salary, I was promoted nine months later thanks to the continuous support I received in achieving my goals. The DWP is a safe, secure and inclusive place to work where the possibilities are endless.' Megan Renzulli UC Full Service Team Leader
