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


    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.

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Department for Transport (London, England (UK)) in March 2015.


    3 stage process: CV, Test and Interview. Interview consists of 10 min presentation and 45 min competency based questions to a panel of 3. Marked according to the STAR technique. VERY nerve wrecking. Interview is 30 mins to prepare a VERBAL presentation no use of other formats. Very Hard
