    Portfolio Office Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Newcastle upon Tyne, England (UK)

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Home Group (Newcastle upon Tyne, England (UK)) in March 2017.

    Interview

    A coffee / informal chat followed by a formal interview, supposedly by 3 managers (only 2 attended in fact). 10 questions, part experience based in line with the job description and part based upon the company values

    Interview Questions

    • How would you put together a portfolio and ensure it is balanced   1 Answer
    • A question around handling a project where the goal posts were moving, asked in such a way it lent itself more the portfolio manager than the portfolio office manager. .Once again I am suspicious that the role applied for was the one I was interviewed for in this respect. The Portfolio Office Manager would ensure effective governance is in place to formally receive the change as a change request, recognize it as such, arrange impact analysis, determine impact on time. cost and quality and then make recommendations to a Change Approval Board as to its impact on delivery. The question was badly framed for a portfolio office manager.   1 Answer
