Initial interview was competency based mainly to draw out cultural fit with some technical questions to verify I understood ERM IT assurance methodologies. However not the usual “tell me about a time when” as through relaxed discussion, was able to provide examples for most. Advice is research the company, ensure you match the role requirements with previous relevant experiences using the values and behaviors they are looking for. The second interview was a chat with Senior Department executive. Again relaxed. Drew on strategy and also hobbies. Whilst relaxed all interviewers were very astute and clearly skilled at drawing out evidence of skills, experience and cultural fit.
