Whichever role you apply for, if you are successfully shortlisted, you will need to attend an interview. This will be with two members of staff and maybe also someone from our recruitment team.
The interview will cover your CV or application form, the skills required for the role and competency-based questions focusing on our values. We also use this time to make sure you fully understand our salary and benefits offer and to give you information about working with us.
For the majority of roles, you may be invited to attend a second interview with a senior manager and if you have applied for a senior or specialist role, there may also be a third interview.
We are an equal opportunities employer and are committed to ensuring that reasonable adjustments are made to our selection processes where needed and that workplace adjustments are available to our employees.
Presentation or seminar
For some roles (eg if you are applying as an experienced economist) you may have to give a seminar or presentation on a paper you have worked on or a topical economic policy issue.
In other areas, such as project management, you may have to present a case study. We will give you the requirements for any presentation ahead of time.
