Standard interview process - phone interview then assessment centre which included both a panel interview, a one to one and several group assessments where the aim was fairly obvious. I.e. show that you can listen and respect colleagues and offer a thoughtful opinion when appropriate. Don't interrupt, that's probably the most important element.
