What hours do you actually work, on average?
What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
I applied through the fast stream. This is a very long process and not many applicants are successful so it's a bit of a commitment. Also the security clearance can take a long time so you may not be able to start immediately. I applied in my last year of university (November- February) and began my post in September.
Do you have any interview tips?
Two long days of assessment centres. Asked about work projects I'd managed, experiences handling conflict and working with other people. Lots of written tests- summarising evidence and giving opinions.
