The Interview Process

Incremental use a 2-stage interview process. Due to hybrid-working, interviews will be conducted either face-to-face, or virtually over Microsoft Teams.

If you are unfamiliar with Microsoft Teams, please contact us recruitment@incrementalgroup.co.uk for a pre-interview trial.

Structure of the interview

To provide you with the best opportunity to demonstrate your skills, abilities and best fit for Incremental, and for you to assess what Incremental can provide for you as an employer, you will be invited to meet with at least two members of the Incremental team during the process and complete a number of components over the course of the 2-stage interview process:

Stage 1

  • Introduction to Incremental and by you;
  • CV journey and experience;
  • Psychometric assessment;
  • Q&A.

Stage 2

  • Further discussion on experience;
  • Presentation/Task; and
  • Q&A.

To ensure fairness and equality during the interview process, stages of the interview are scored.

CV journey and experience

The interview will be conducted by two members of the Incremental team and will include:

  • A review of your CV and accomplishments to date;
  • Discussion around previous roles, companies who you have been employed by, plus any gaps; and
  • A dive into experience relevant to the role you have applied for.

Competency based questions

One of the tools used in our interview process is competency based questions (also known as structured, behavioural or situational questions). These questions are designed to test one or more of your skills or competencies. The interviewers ask all candidates the same questions, each focusing on a specific skill, and your answers will be compared against pre-determined criteria and marked accordingly.

To be successful in responding to competency-based questions, follow the STAR method. The STAR format is a simple, structured technique to help you answer scenario-based questions and should help you share the right amount of information. It is designed to help you consider your answer in more depth.

Psychometric assessment

In advance of your first interview you will be asked to complete a psychometric test online with our partner, Thrive. This assessment is made up of a series of multiple-choice questions, which will relate to certain traits of your personality or behaviours. The assessment takes around 30min to complete and denotes the stable and enduring characteristics that distinguish you from other people and make you unique. Upon completion of the assessment, you will receive a graded report as will the interviewers, with the outputs being discussed in the interviews.

The outcome

After each stage of interview, you will be informed of next steps. In the event that you are invited to a second interview, this will again be with two members of the team and will explore the areas covered in the first interview in more depth.

In the event that you are unsuccessful, you will received feedback in a timely manner once all interviews have concluded.

  • Base material: Role description.
  • Scope: Present your approach to ensuring success in the role. You should articulate what you believe to be measures of success, your approach to delivering them and any potential barriers to success, based on previous experience.
