    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Department of Energy & Climate Change (London, England (UK)) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Organised, panel interview, consisting of 3 members. Extremely fair, competence based, friendly and on time. I didn't get the job, but I cannot fault the process. Feedback was given when it said it would be. Its a pity the department is being axed as the rest of the public sector could learn a lot from them. The only downside is that they asked people to prepare a presentation, but didn't make it clear that no laptop was available to use.

    Interview Questions

    • Competence based and situational questions, with some background reading and materials to absorb and comment on. A presentation on the material to be given.   Answer Question
