Make sure you google research the STAR interview method/technique. They will look out for this.
You'll be asked at least 3 competency based questions answer these the best you can make sure to mention yourself a lot for example " I did this to achieve the outcome" never talk as a group for example "when we did this" they don't want to know about other people they want to see how "YOU" as a person will be in a team and alone on your own two feet. Definitely look up the STAR method! this will help for a lot of insurance/financial type interviews.

Initally I applied online through their refer-a-friend scheme and I then had a telephone interview with one of my now colleagues. I was then put through to psychometric testing and this was then followed up with a request for a face to face interview. I had two interviews - a general and a technical. These interviews were back-to-back.
