    Interview process

    The interview is roughly 4-7 questions asking why you want the role and how you dealt with certain situation. (dealt with change, offender behavior, your own actions, PACE)
    The report was summarizing a case file.
    Lastly the group assessment was about making points as team and then agreeing on a desired outcome.

    Most difficult question

    Provide a situation where you have caused change and this had lead to a positive outcome.

    Interview tips

    Do not worry about this assessment day. Think of examples and be yourself. Work as a team, write a quick concise report and sell yourself. It is a challenging assessment but if you have made it this far and have worked with ex offenders already, you've done the hardest part.

    Experiences at the assessment centre

    The assessment centre was full of friendly staff who make you feel comfortable and welcome. Everything is well organized and explained. The hardest part, in my opinion, was writing the report especially if you have never done this before within this setting.
