NYCC are forward thinking, empowering and inspiration council to work for. They have a clarity of thinking that allows them to work through issues and focus on delivery. They have clear priorities empower staff and listen to customers, feedback and involve staff in those solutions. I wouldn't work any where else

Advice to Management

I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at North Yorkshire County Council (Northallerton, England) in September 2015.
Application form was completed detailing all relevant experience to the job and person specification. If you didn't take time to share all information you would be sifted out of the process. CVs are not accepted.
There was an online psychometric test which took 45 minutes.
Interview was a presentation followed by competency based interview, lasting an hour.
