Interview

This tests four of the ten civil service competences.  With mock exercises we can get you through this in the same time, with delivery, coverage of your examples and drilling in to you how to almost guarantee top marks at this stage – we have the competencies in detail with the wording that the assessors have. But read on…

Know your examples! The interview is all about you giving examples to the assessor of how well YOU (not “we”/”my team”) have performed in certain situations. You will not be asked what makes you tick. FSAC uses its fairest way to objectively judge people as marking them all against one coherent benchmark – the competences.

They will ask why you want to join the FSAC though, so you should know this and be able to communicate it propely and succinctly.

You should prepare sterling, comprehensive examples to show how well you perform against the four competences.
