    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Metropolitan Police Service in July 2020.

    Interview

    After completing my application from online my interview took place a week later. The interview was straight forward and to the point attended by two senior staff members. I would recommend heavily preparing for the interview. I was asked three competency based questions that were linked to the role that I had applied for.
