At ONS we use the Success Profiles framework for assessing people at interview. There is lots of guidance available on the gov.uk website and if you contact the recruitment team they can also send you over guidance documents to help you.
We work on flexi time, so for a fulltime employee that's 37hrs a week, but with a lot of freedom to how you do your hours across the week.
The general rule is as long as the work is done and you do your hours, you get a lot of freedom to fit with your personal life.
What is the paid holiday policy like at Office for National Statistics? How many days do you get per year?
25 days plus any bank holidays. After 5 years that rises to 30 days plus bank holidays
What was the most challenging part of your role at Office for National Statistics?
Trying to cope with the many new instructions/schemes that emanated from the ONS management, most of which seemed totally unnecessary and perhaps more designed to further the careers of the senior management.
How did you feel about telling people you worked at Office for National Statistics?
Because you want to make a difference to UK Plc. You enjoy the flexibility to not have to use an alarm clock in the morning as most of the work you do starts after 10am, if you are a Field Interviewer
