    I have been working at Office for National Statistics as an intern (Less than a year)


    Very interesting work! Hands on work, directly affecting policy, very rewarding to work somewhere that is so important. Plenty of opportunities for training and development. They encourage movement within the organisation and within Civil Service (not really applicable to me as a sandwich student).


    The nature of the work (regular publications) means that it can get slightly repetitive, and sometimes there can be periods of time where there is little work to do.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at Office for National Statistics.


    Role play, data input on laptop, plotting addresses on a map, then a general interview. Three interviewers were present and the general interview was conducted with another interviewee present which was a bit uncomfortable. The data input was simple but the role play was made deliberately hazardous, which in retrospect was a good idea as the job involves some tenacity in dealing with difficult members of the public. Lasted 2.5 - 3 hours.
