Interview processThe interview structure was 30 minutes test based upon a civil engineering highways problem regarding a new road planning application. this was then followed by a 15 minutes presentation based upon your findings. This was then followed by a 30 minutes interview regarding the candidate. This was more about what you bring to the team.
This was the only stage in the recruitment process. They advised me that from the initial assessment they wanted to know my about my basic understanding about highways and if I could interpret a CAD drawing. There were several deliberate mistakes made on the drawing which were very basic such as no dimension. There was also a test on your understanding of how a road structure is made. There was codes provided with adequate information on them such as concrete specification. This was all to be presented to the panel of judges after 30 minutes.
resources provided were:
scaled ruler, pen, pencil and calculator, 2 A4 sheets of relevant codes and a A3 drawing of the proposed planning application.
