What hours do you actually work, on average?
What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
Give solid examples about how you meet the competencies. Make the examples quantifiable where possible. If you have the experience required for the role, you have a strong chance in getting it. If you happen to have a stats/maths degree, this role is definitely within reach. Draw on the complex things you have encountered in your degree, and present them in a simplified and uncomplicated way to show your deep level of understanding.
Do you have any interview tips?
Read about the civil service values and understand how they relate to the position. Honesty, impartiality and integrity are crucial in government statistics, and understanding these principles will really help in interview and in the role.
Be ready to answer questions about maths/stats at interview! Go over basic statistical concepts and practice explaining them to someone who may not come from a stats background. Familiarise yourself with the competencies you will be assessed on, and prepare topics/examples to talk about. Talk about projects you are involved in which aren't necessarily stats based, but which demonstrate the civil service values (such as volunteering).
