I had interview this week at Euston tower for Croydon position. I was told it’s the last day of interviews and no more to follow. So, we should start hearing back now.

Hello! I've applied for this role but in Edinburgh (EO), and I have an interview next week. Just wanted to jump in to see if anyone might have some tips or examples of questions that came up when you did the interview? It's my first competency-based interview so just trying to figure out how best to prepare!

Writing down examples to fit the competencies would be the best start - but do not entirely rely on trying to 'read a script' that you can't see in an interview as it can put extra pressure on you and lead to blanking mid sentence. Also, sometimes they can simply ask you to demonstrate a time when you have showed this competency. Sometimes they can ask you a question that would only indicate which competency they are referring to and they target it in an odd way. For example;

Tell me about a time you have demonstrated the competency "Leading and Communicating"

or

Tell me about a time you have persuaded a senior stakeholder to take one of your ideas into consideration.

Both are essentially asking for the same thing, but can throw you off depending on how it's worded. Don't be rigid. Examine your answers and look to where you can expand on them if necessary to suit the actual question - or followup questions.

Also, big piece of advice. Focus on; I did. I arranged. I lead. Avoid using "we" and focus on what you did, where you made impact and the decisions you took. They don't want to know what your team did, or your manager, just what you bring to the table.

My competencies were all based on work experiences so knew what I was talking about , the only thing back of my mind worrying me a bit was the online test scores which were rubbish :P, I've managed to score 7, 7 and 6 in the interview and got the provisional offer so who care about them online test scores now just be confident and I'm sure you will do fine.

Congratulations! I'm still waiting for feedback from a different HMRC interview, so I'm kind of selfishly hoping for a bit of a delay with mine!

Great news & congratulations , how long it took for them to do pre-employment checks ? I've emailed them 3 documents and also the next stage in CS portal yesterday so I'm hoping to hear something soon.

Thank you it took just over two weeks but I’m internal so it will be a bit quicker for me! Hopefully you find out soon

That's great advice Ehty, thank you! I've based all my examples on work experience too and am fairly happy with them but just worried they might phrase the question in a way that throws me, like you said. My test scores weren't that great either so I'm hoping to do better in the interview

If in doubt, I would just start talking about the competency you've prepared. The question I got asked for making effective decisions was about 'making decisions in the face of policies that you were unsure about', which threw me to start with. I knew that my prepared competency would hit every point on the framework, so I just started talking while also thinking of how twist it to answer the question properly.

I'm still waiting for Newcastle EO from April 2017's recruitment.

I had my provisional on 14th June and still waiting my security checks now. I've emailed them and they have responded to say that they are still carrying out checks and they cannot give a timescale on when they will be completed.

Hope your wait isn't as long as mine!

Unfortunately not. Applied February 2017. Had my interview April 2017. We then had an email In september 2017 to say that they didn’t recruit anyone from the interviews and that they would hopefully have some jobs in 2018, we were all therefore put on a reserve list for 12 months in September 2017 and I was given a provisional offer in June this year. 😂

I’m just hoping that they are waiting until all the latest round of interviews to pass their checks so that they can start a batch of people together
