    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Wiltshire Council (Chippenham, South West England, England (UK)) in May 2015.

    Interview

    This was a presentation based interview to a panel of senior managers. The presentation was to be delivered without the use of PowerPoint and was to last for 15 minutes. Following the presentation I was questioned about what I had delivered.
    The rest of the interview was question and answers from each of the panel.
