    Short term contractors can be on site in a fortnight. Recruitment for permanent roles is usually limited to Internal candidates unless in exceptional circumstances. Interview process is extremely robust and thorough, often disproportionate for the role. Recruitment process is governed by strict rules and so is extremely fair yet not always quick.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at UK Ministry of Defence in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    An internal move that required a conversation with my manning agency. A simple discussion highlighting my skills and why I would be suitable for the job in terms of benefits to the organisation and my career profile within the MOD. Timing was the most important factor to align with the outflow of the current post incumbent therefore research on when people are moving is a good idea.
