    I've just finished my A-levels this year and have decided to look for a job. I wanted to apply for an AO job with HMRC. However, I'm struggling with the application process. They want me to give an example of when I have delivered at pace (max 250 words). I want to use the STAR method but can't think of an appropriate situation and was wondering if anybody can help me model an answer. Thanks in advance

    Star method isn't necessarily appropriate because STAR best defines a specific challenge/issue whereas delivering at pace is more a description of an on-going, environmental requirement of a role. I'd just think of a time where you have had to deliver, deliver, deliver - waiting tables is a classic and say why and how you sustained the tempo.
