    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Department for Work And Pensions (Birmingham, England (UK)).

    Interview

    I applied for the AO role in Disability Operations, scored 4 on all competencies which were; Managing a quality service, Making effective decisions, Delivering at pace, collaborating and partnering and then went onto completing a Verbal Reasoning Test. I was accepted to an interview, which went really well, with 2 interviewers, who came across quite decent and nice to talk to - not so intimidating; the interview itself was pretty thorough, which included me having to answer competency based questions in further detail. The overall process so far has been great, but I am still awaiting feedback on whether I have been accepted for the role or not.
