Details on the selection process

we are there for everyone

At DLUHC, we value diversity and inclusion and encourage and welcome applications from everyone, including those who are underrepresented in our workforce. We promote equal opportunity in all aspects of employment and a work environment free from discrimination, harassment, intimidation and victimization.

We strongly encourage applicants to contact their job manager for more information about this position.

we are there for everyone

DLUHC wants to integrate a diverse workforce at all levels.

Our application system is designed to remove as much bias as possible from the recruitment system; This means a hiring manager won't know your name and details, won't see your entire application at once (or review your resume unless otherwise noted).

Your answers are random and grouped. This means that each reviewer sees a series of answers to questions, e.g. For example, all candidates' responses to "See the big picture" instead of seeing a candidate's entire application. The science behind this is that there can be clutter and fatigue effects when drawing, and we want to reduce this as much as possible.

Most of our campaigns use multiple raters, so each of your responses may be seen by different raters.

When writing your application, remember:

  • The evaluator will not read your answers one by one.

  • Don't assume that the reviewers themselves have read all of your replies.

  • If you address something in your first answer, be sure to write the second answer as if you didn't write the first (and so on!).

We will evaluate in the sieve

Experience (core element) - What experiences have you had with working in a project environment and the associated project management processes?

Behavior 1 - See the big picture

Behavior 2 - Work together

Behavior 3 – Deliver quickly

There is a limit of 250 words per question.

In the event that we receive a large number of signups, we may conduct an initial assessment based on the lead behavior described in the ad. Applicants who pass the initial assessment may proceed to the full assessment or directly to assessment/interview

The interview will be mixed in nature and will consist of the experience- and behavior-based questions listed in the ad.

In its entirety, the campaign will test the following elements of the Success Profile:

Behaviors: seeing the big picture, working together, keeping pace

Experience: (yes)

Internal fraud database

The Cabinet's Fraud, Error, Debt and Donations function's internal fraud function processes the details of employees who have been fired for internal fraud or who would have been fired had they not resigned. The Cabinet Office obtains the details of participating government organizations from officials who have been fired or would have been fired had they not resigned for internal fraud. In such cases, civil servants are barred from other public service posts for 5 years. The Cabinet Office then processes this data and shares a limited dataset with the DLUHC as participating government organizations. DLUHC then conducts pre-employment screenings to detect instances where known scammers are attempting to reapply for public service positions. In this way the policy is insured and the repetition of internal fraud is avoided.
