What hours do you actually work, on average?
What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
I think first and foremost the applicant should want to work within the Public Sector and should strive to make a difference. Being adaptable and willing to learn is key. However, if the candidate has any doubts regarding their level of knowledge in the subject area, this should not be a concern, as a huge emphasis is placed on training and development and these can be learnt whilst doing the job.
Do you have any interview tips?
It is always best to be over-prepared. Think about various situations you have found yourself in that have demonstrated key competencies such as teamwork or dealing with conflict and have some answers prepared. This will help to calm any nerves and provide you with some examples.
The candidate should also research the organisation and learn the key priorities or issues that are a hot topic so that you are up to date. Overall, show your enthusiasm and try not to be nervous, the staff are all very friendly and will put you at ease.
