Cabinet Office Internship...

Announcements Posted on

    Looks like I've landed myself an interview for an Internship with the Cabinet Office next Wednesday.

    One of two questions..... What sort of question should I expect at an Interview? Would it be the standard questions you'd expect at any interview?

    Second question, Would working for the Cabinet Office clash with applying for the Foreign Office at the end of September? If I remember correctly, I read somewhere that if you were already working within the Civil Service then you would be unable to apply for the fast stream?

    I'd expect standard questions, competency ones and 'why this' questions.

    You can apply to the external fast stream but probably not the internal route (I don't know about the CO HR guidance). But anyone can apply via the external site.

    Hi there
    I also have an interview with them on Monday.

    How did it go? I know it was a long time ago, however I wanted to know what the questions were like and if they gave you any tests.

    I am also applying for a internship at the Cabinet office, Just wondering how you found working there.
