Hints and Tips

Interviews can be tough and put you outside of your comfort zone. We want you to do well in your interview just as much as you do so we've put together a few handy hints and tips to consider when preparing for your new opportunity.

Your Application

  • Make it stand out! Let us know how your skills, knowledge and experience match the role you’re applying for.
  • Keep your CV up to date, focussed and relevant.
  • Do one last check over your grammar and spelling. 

Before Your Interview

  • Think about all the qualities and skills that we are looking for and link your examples to the role profile and our behaviours.
  • Check the date, time and location of your interview and how you’re going to get there.
  • What do you want to ask about us, the role and the department? This is your opportunity to get a real insight into what it’s like to work here.

During Your Interview

  • Be positive and enthusiastic, don’t be afraid to sell yourself.
  • Don’t rush, reflect upon the question and take the time you need.
  • Speak clearly, confidently and make eye contact.
  • If you don’t understand the question, just ask.
  • Relax and be yourself.
