To apply you will need to complete the short application form and take the online Civil Service Verbal and Numeric Tests. Ideally you should take the tests by midday on 23 January 2022 to allow for the next stage of the application process.
If you are successful, you will be asked to complete the full application form.
Please copy and paste your CV onto the online application form, detailing your qualifications and work history.
You will then be asked to complete a 250-word technical box which should be used to demonstrate how you meet the essential technical criteria as follows:
• Proficient in the use of MS Office, including Excel.
The Statement of Suitability section (in no more than 1000 words) should be used to outline your skills and experience for the role and detail how you meet the essential experience criteria listed below. You may wish to bullet point/list your statement to match the criteria.
• Experience of working in a commercial environment
• Experience of letting and/or negotiating contracts and/or managing contracts and suppliers
• Experience of developing and maintaining internal and external stakeholder relationships.
• Knowledge of Government Framework Agreements;
• Excellent attention to detail and ability to make sound judgements/decisions based on available evidence.
In the event of a high volume of applications the panel may pre-sift on your CV using the lead criteria – Experience of working in a commercial environment
The sift will take place shortly after the closing date. If successful at shortlisting stage, you will be invited to attend a virtual, blended interview.
The blended interview will test the experience and behaviours listed in the attached Candidate Pack, as well as the strengths associated with the role. We want to hear your first, unrehearsed, natural response to strength questions, and so we don’t advertise which strengths are being tested.
Candidates may refer to notes within their video interview but they should be used as a prompt only.
