We understand that interviews can be daunting for some people, but the better prepared you are, the more confident you will feel on the day. Our top tips for a successful interview are:
Research: Make sure you are familiar with the job role, the department, the organisation, and our values.
Anticipate the questions: The advert, job description, and person specification will give you a lot of clues to the interview questions we’ll be using.
Consider your appearance: The way you present yourself at an interview is important, so please arrive in smart attire.
Plan your journey: Aim to arrive early, check where your interview is being held and have the contact details on you in case you’re delayed.
We use structured interviews where the questions are designed to allow you to demonstrate your skills and abilities in-line with the job role. We will be looking for you to provide examples of how you have demonstrated particular skills and behaviours in the past. Try to keep your answers structured and concise, but don’t be so brief in your answers that the interviewer has to prompt you for further information. And remember to relax!
