    Interview

    it was much like the standard fastream interview process. i would look up information on that for more details. for the telephone interview, they are just trying to help you. so don''t be concerned if they interupt and ask for a more specific answer. if you can give it to them, you'll actually do really well.

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Her Majesty's Revenue & Customs.

    Interview

    The interview process was very rushed, as I felt the interviewer was busy. I was interviewed by a Higher Officer who then turned out to be my manager along with an independent of lower grade. The experience was positive, I felt it was fair and competitive, as I felt listened to and my answers as long as in line competency framework were credited.

    Interview

    Was quite straight forward, was asked to provide examples of the competencies listed in the job description. My advice would be to look at the job description on the gov.uk website and prepare examples of each competency listed.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Her Majesty's Revenue & Customs (London, England (UK)) in November 2017.

    Interview

    the video interview was very relaxed, 10 questions, prep time given before every question. none of the questions felt like they were there to trip you up. it is then sent to each of the schemes that you have applied for and then from there they will accept or reject, this does mean that feedback from this was a long time coming

    I applied online. I interviewed at Her Majesty's Revenue & Customs.

    Interview

    Quite straight forward, given lots of information prior to the interview such as the types of questions that may be asked and what they want to hear from you.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Her Majesty's Revenue & Customs (London, England (UK)) in September 2017.

    Interview

    The interview was held at 100 Parliament Street and it was a very positive experience. The interview lasted around 30-40 mins and it was heavily competency based. Just make sure you know the competencies of the job description inside out (use the Civil Service Competency Framework). Make sure you have solid evidence/examples of each competency of the job. The (2) interviewees were very friendly and took a relaxed approach to the interview so the environment wasn't stressful at all and made you feel comfortable. I was offered a position.
