Yeah that’s what I thought.. might help to see others answers. PM me your number and I’ll set it up. I’m just practicing now, I work in Domestic Violence refuge so big change too. Been in the police previously but never civil service
That would be good! I'll PM you too and if you could add me please I'd appreciate it

The Civil Service recruitment process is hard enough as it is - if we can all help eachother it'd be nice

An hour 30?! Wow I didn't know that! I'm going to prepare today and maybe do the interview tomorrow.

Strength based questions you can't really prepare for - they want natural answers and can tell when you're reciting rehearsed things. They just want to find out what you're good at naturally, what motivates you and what makes you thrive etc. For example "How would your friends describe you?" "What are your weaknesses?" "How do you keep yourself motivated after a setback?" "When did you achieve something you are most proud of?"

I hope this helps - I'm no expert on the behaviour-based questions but the strengths I feel come naturally
That helps!! I just didnt know how theyd ask.. but youve given examples so thank you!
I think i am going to do it thurs - always last min cause i want the most prep time 😭😭

Omg this is bizarre! So many people have had different things! When I contacted launchpad they said there wasn’t an opportunity to show/upload on the interview, and other people have said they haven’t been able to upload either! So confusing

That’s really strange! There definitely was - maybe it differs depending on devices but I can’t see why launchpad are saying that if there was an opportunity. Really bizarre. Hopefully someone can shed some light on it for you!

Hi everyone! I scored 4 on my feedback. Yet to do my interview and I picked Manchester. Anyone clarify that it’s just the 3 areas they are assessing in interview? Working Together, Making effective decisions and communicating and influencing? I’m also awaiting a position with BF at Manchester airport. Applied October 2018 and still on the reserve list which got extended April just gone 😬

Very strange question but what email address did the email come from with the link to upload documentation?

Perhaps a bit late for most folk but I completed my interview this morning. I used my laptop, using my O2 data as my WiFi was playing up. The IT delivery side of it went very smoothly but this was my first virtual interview and I have this feeling that I waffled a little with some of my answers overlapping. Having the timer count down is a strange experience, on a number of questions I didn't fully use all the time. But getting an interview is an achievement as I read somewhere that the Civil Service have been getting as many as 10,000 applications for each vacancy advertised! Hopefully at least I'll get credit for being positive throughout my interview. Good luck to the other candidates.

Yeah, questions on areas such as working within a team, reacting when things don't go to plan, dealing with a range of people (culture), exchanging support with colleagues etc. That should hopefully give you an idea mate. Good luck.

Did anyone actually use the ~180 seconds to answer each question? because I think I barely touched 60 seconds on each...
