We totally understand and appreciate Interviews can be daunting, but the process tends to vary depending on the role.We will always inform you via email prior to interview if there are any tests for you to complete as part of the recruitment and selection process. This would also include information around presentations that may need to be delivered. As for the interview itself, we really see this as being a two-way process. Firstly, we get to learn more about you, your motivations and interest in working for us. We then discuss your own skills, knowledge and experience in the form of competency style questions. The interview is also your chance to ask us any burning questions, which our panel are more than happy to answer for you. After all, as much as we will be assessing you to see if you are the best candidate, it is also your chance to gauge if we are the best employer for you.Answered by NORTH YORKSHIRE COUNTY COUNCIL4 July 2019

The mens' dress code is smart casual - men are expected to wear shirts but not ties, I got away with wearing a shirt, jeans and boots. I'm not sure about womens' dress code here.Answered 31 August 2019
