    Pros

    Varied and gives you a lot of responsibility. If doing international work get opportunity to travel

    Cons

    Pay and pension conditions have been severely eroded over the years. Expected to do long hours with no equivalent renumeration.

    Advice to Management

    Need to be more visible to staff and ensure that they feel included and understand their contribution and value to the overall department objectives particularly with further cost cutting on the horizon.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Department for Transport (London, England (UK)) in August 2016.

    Interview

    The Interview process was excellent. I had 3 interviewers who were very friendly and courteous. Made me feel comfortable. Explained what their roles were and what my role would involve and how it would influence the programme I had applied for. They answered my questions quite candidly as well. Each of the interviewer gave me an insight into their job and made me understand the wider aspects of the programme and the role that I was applying for before the interview began. This helped me develop an understanding of the role and base my answers on it.

    Interview Questions

    • Explain how the government can improve on their delivery process of major infrastructure projects and what are the problems it is currently facing.

      I was asked to present my answers to them on a flipchart and was given 20 mins to prepare
