DEFRA and our Executive Agencies are increasingly introducing online elements to recruitment such as Occupational Personality Questionnaires. Online processes are also more efficient, especially for high volume recruitment. However, if asked we always make hard copy and e-mail versions available to applicants who are not able to use the online elements of our processes.
