    Civil service interview 14th May 18 at 7:11 PM
    I currently work at the DWP and have an interview for a job in a different department.

    Iím just wondering if these competencyís that Iím using are ok.

    Collaborating and partnering - working with a team and creating a newsletter

    Managing a quality service - dealing with a customer who was trying to book an online flight.

    Leading and communicating - leading a team in creating a staff website

    Delivery value for money - looking in lowering our station budget.

    Thanks in advance

    The competencies seem OK, but the written English is likely to trip you up. Civil servants nowadays are not what they once were, but you are still expected to be able to use the language competently.

    Can you get a friend with English as a first language to help You?

    A few examples are,
