    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at BIS (Croydon, England (UK)) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Very good and straightforward. The most important thing is to prepare and do a lot of research about the organisation. Have some questions for the panel and finally remain calm they are human being just like you!

    Internship Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at BIS (London, England (UK)) in September 2013.

    Interview

    The process was quite straightforward with just one interview with a panel of 2/3. I don't think the questions were too difficult but I was probably just not a good match. I wasn't particularly inspired by the people interviewing me and so was not that disappointed when I did not get the role. What was good was that they gave me feedback about my interviewing technique after I was unsuccessful which some places do not.

    Standard civil service - open job applications with emphasis theoretically on meeting key selection criteria but actually on past experience and line manager reports. Paper sift is followed by interviews, which stick pretty rigidly to the 'give us an example of where you have demonstrated competency X'

    Interview Questions

    • The main tricky ones might be 'exactly what did you achieve', or 'what fraction of the success of that project could be attributed to you'   Answer Question

    Negotiation
