    Interview process

    The intitial telephone interview and the first one and one interview were simple enough - standard competency based interviews (Can you give me an example of when you have had to.../have demonstrated skills... and often followed by "what would you do differently if you were to do it again?") and questions about why you want to do the particular role and some questions about the company.

    Most difficult question

    "Can you give me an example of when you have had to influence someone?"
    "Can you give me an example of when you have had to deal with confrontation?"

    Interview tips

    Prepare.
    Find out a lot about the company - what it does, its history and information about its products. You may be asked what you know about certain products.
    Practise competency questions and lots of them. The majority of questions during interviews are competency based, asking about your skills and previous experience. Be specific when giving an example, remembering to use the STAR technique (Situation, Task, Action, Result). Also think about what you could have do differently regarding your examples - they want to see your analytical skills.
    Especially give examples pointing out your strengths which match the requirements of the position you are going for.
    Think about why you want this particular role.
    Be patient and be polite.

    Experiences at the assessment centre

    There were 8 candidates and we began with a group based exercise involving working together and making a decision on a scenario where we had to distribute a grant to certain companies.
    We then had a test, using cards, which was essentially about spotting patterns and using your analytical skills.
    We then were to prepare a 15 minute interview regarding a technical project we had undertaken.
    Finally there was a 1 hour interview with a senior person from the role which you are applying for and someone from HR.
    Assessment centre is in Abingdon and transport and accommodation is paid for by the company.
