Hi, I have gotten through to the telephone interview for the Early Diversity Internship Programme (civil service fast stream) and I was wondering if anyone had any tips and advice on how to prepare for the interview? My interview is in a few days and I'm quite nervous on what to expect. Any responses would be very appreciated!

Don't be nervous! I just did mine yesterday and it's only 20-25minutes. Also click the "Find out more about final board selection" button on the gov website with your application. Those are the questions asked exactly in the interview. Good luck, don't sweat it.

Ahh thank you so much!! Sorry just to be extra clear, they're going to ask questions on how we have showcased the strengths they've written out? And I hope that yours went well!

Yeah and they want relevant examples of how you've applied these strengths in your past experiences.

Thanks and good luck mate. Mine was alright but I had to do it outside on campus since it was right after my lecture and I couldn't acquire a private room in time! Just found a quiet place outside I guess haha I hope the interviewer didn't recognise that I was outdoors...

Haha im sure you being outside wouldn't have been too noticeable!

Sorry for the constant questions (I'm probably overthinking this a lot 😭), but I'm finding it sort of tricky to apply correct examples to these strengths. I reckon I'm overcomplicating it but can our examples be literally anything (e.g non-academic related)? I'm especially finding it difficult talking about the efficient strength (converting resources into results in the most efficient and economical way?

For the last question, it's more like how would you plan things to be of high quality in a short amount of time and fewer resources.

It didn't go well at all haha; I've tried to put it out of my mind tbh but I ended up repeating one of my examples that I had already used and then I don't think I was even answering the lady's questions (I think I was going off on tangents) 😭going to keep my hopes low

Anyway, you will be fine i think, i mean we are all year one only and it's okay to have fewer experience and keep using example.

Honestly I also repeated examples. It's not the end of the world. Don't worry
