    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at The Department for Education (UK) (London, England (UK)) in March 2018.

    Interview

    Very structured, no room for individuality and very similar to the written application, with questions made wordier to throw you. Wasn’t made very clear what was expected if you or what skills they were assessing with each question.
