    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Office for National Statistics.

    Interview Details

    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.
