    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Civil Service United Kingdom (Telephone, TX) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Online tests (verbal, numerical, situational judgement), competency questionnaire, telephone interview.

    The latter two look for the core Civil Service competencies as listed on the website.

    Mostly quite basic - nothing too unexpected or difficult. Practice tests are provided before taking the actual tests, competency questionnaire is quite clear and easily answered, and interview topics are given before hand.
