I got the role through applying online, who then put me through to the agency in charge of the recruitment. office Angels. They sent me a competency questionnaire to fill in requested by the employer. Detailed examples of the STAR model were requested, situation, task, approach and result. The interview itself was based in Wimbledon, with 2 members of staff so a small panel of people. The role was within the legal sector so they needed someone dedicated, discreet ad someone who followed instructions. Varied questions was poised, I think the most important that people tend to forget it what you know about the company and why you'd like to work for them.
Most difficult question
Most difficult question was staying abreast with current news and affairs. I was asked on the legal reform and the government cutting the budget of legal practices. I had the impression that my role would solely be admin and data gathering so I struggled a tad. The advise I'd give would be to look into the company extensively and if their sector is/has been in the news, do the research.
Always do extensive research on the company you're trying to work for, not only does it give you something to talk about, it shows your dedication to wanting to be part of their family.
