What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?

Focus on your skills and projects undertaken in your application. Also look through the DSTL job website to find out about the different areas of DSTL and what skills they use then apply to specific departments.

Do you have any interview tips?

You will be asked for a 10 minute informal presentation, so pick a project that you have completed that you thoroughly understand. The interviewers are mainly looking for people who can think critically and analyse information. So it is alright to not know the answer to a question, but you should attempt an answer in which you explain your thinking that lead you to that answer.
