    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Ministry of Justice UK.

    Interview Details

    Had to give a presentation five minutes maximum, then competencies based interview. Three people in the panel and it lasted about 40 minutes. No trick questions, just how have you demonstrated evidence based policy making, planning, motivating staff, delivering a final product etc. There was an interest in demonstrating project management skills.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Ministry of Justice UK in August 2009.

    Interview Details

    When I first applied for the position online via seek, I was required to fill in a very detailed self assessment form. I had to give a detailed description of a time in my previous employement where I demostrated Responsibility, Teamwork, Perserverance, Accountability and Negotiation. I also wrote a cover letter and sent in my CV. After this process I waited for atleast a month, after which I was phoned and asked to come in for an interview. The interview process lasted about an hour and a half. I was asked many of the above questions again. I was also reguired to sit a personality test and an Iq test. I was later offered a different position than the one I originaly applied for, however it was a fixed term contract which was not appropriate for me at the time.
