Whichever role you apply for, you will need to attend an interview. This will normally be with two members of staff, and it will cover your CV or application form and the skills required for the role. You may have to return for a second interview with a senior manager. If you have applied for a senior or specialist role, there may also be a third interview.
You may also meet someone from our human resources team, who may cover some more competency-based questions. We also use this interview to make sure you fully understand our salary and benefits offer and to give you information about working with us. This interview is usually at the same time as your second interview.
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.
