    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Crown Prosecution Service (London, England (UK)) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Online application on civil service website with 4/5 competency based questions. Followed by interview that was completely compentency based. Around 4-5 questions asked. After I was successful at the interview (found out a month later), had to complete security checks, DBS, pre employment checks and Heath declaration etc.
