Advice to Management
The management must be able to manage diversity, have an understanding that working with different people need that passion to lead
I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at The Department for Education (UK) (London, England (UK)).
Very structured and basic competency interview by three people. Literally asked me to spell out the examples required from the Civil Service handbook. Quite short - 40 minutes. Not too taxing. If you prepare well from the handbook and follow the STAR structure, this is not a difficult interview. Although the interview itself was short, the entire process was very long. Job advertised in November, interview was almost two months later, final decision made four weeks after that.
