Interview Tips

Interview Tips


Do your research

Take a look at the company values and competencies, and see how they align with who you are as a person. 

Familiarise yourself with the role

Take time to revisit the job description and specification. Making sure you're familiar with the role will help you answer any questions. 

Use the STAR approach

Where you're asked about specific clinical scenarios/examples, use the STAR approach: 

  • Situation
  • Task
  • Action
  • Result and reflection

Practice and prepare

Practice the interview with someone once you've researched all of your answers. It would also be a good idea to prepare some questions you want to ask the interview panel. 


Make sure you know the interview location: how to get there, and where to report to on arrival (all of this will be in the confirmation email you'll receive).
We recommend that you arrive at least 15 minutes prior to your interview time.

Bring your ID

Please note that you need to make sure you take your ID documentation where the organisation asks you to do so. This will speed up the pre-employment check process if you are successful. 

Dress to impress

Make sure the way you dress is giving interviewers the right impression - dressing smart is always recommended.
