What hours do you actually work, on average?
What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
Read everything online and understand the regulatory nature of the business. Demonstrating leadership and team work and all of the other competencies should be pretty simple in an assessment centre setting. It is more important to hone in on aspects of commercial awareness and how you can demonstrate this as I think that is the most challenging competency to demonstrate.
Do you have any interview tips?
It's a pretty standard competency based exercise. Prepare answers to the standard competency based interview questions that you would expect (team work, problem solving, leadership) to be asked and make sure you have a range of situations that these answers can be taken from ie University/internship/clubs and societies/part time jobs. UKPN are big on accountability so make sure you talk in terms of 'I did this, I did that' rather than 'We did this' etc so you are actually putting across your personal skills and the value you have added to projects you have completed.
