Competency based question queries

Recommended Posts

Nick Wilde

With the application form, structured interview and final interview, there are at least two parts of the SC recruitment process that involve competency based questions.  Does anyone have any experience of if it's possible a question or two say from the application form, will be repeated in either of the interviews?  If so, would you be expected to provide a different answer to the one used on your application?  And also, would you say it was acceptable to use an answer on your form to answer a different question in interview (assuming of course that answer was also relevant to the interview question)?  Any advice or experiences appreciated, thanks :)

I've recently been through the final interview and passed it - I would recommend treating each thing as separate and answering their specific questions as if it's the first time they have asked it you. I answered one or two questions using the same example but for the majority they were new or more specific/tailored to how I now knew they wanted to be answered. Note that for all stages it is a different group of people marking you and even though they might know you have used it before, I doubt they would care, they are just trying to score all answers against their set of criteria.

My experience was for PC not SC but it should not be any different.
