What hours do you actually work, on average?
What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
I’d suggest being honest in the application. The organisation has a diverse range of roles, and giving a good idea of what you are interested in maximises the potential that you are placed in an appropriate area. There is a risk you may become ‘lost’ in the application process and end up in the wrong area. Demonstrate understanding of Defence and Security issues in the short, medium and long term.
Do you have any interview tips?
My only advice is to make sure you demonstrate a genuine interest in the field of work. Keep really up to date with current events and think about the biggest Defence and Security pressures likely to affect national security in the last 10 years. Highlight how defence issues are interconnected. For example, the threat of x is compounded by restrictions in public sector expenditure, legal issues, technological concerns, etc.
