    Executive Officer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at The Department for Education (UK) (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    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.
