    Interview process

    There was no telephone interview for the role, instead the interview was a group assessment day which included group exercises, a presentation and a one on one interview. The group consisted of approx 10 applicants and around the same number of staff.

    After introductions, the group was split and while one toured the facilities, the other conducted a group exercise. The groups then swapped over after an hour or so. There was then a further individual exercise before a one on one interview.

    At the one on one interview, which lasted around 20 minutes, the assessor discussed your individual exercise and then asked a series of questions to show your competency for the role. For these they asked you to apply scenarios where you could prove your knowledge. Any questions about the role were answered here.

    Following the one on one interview, applicants had the opportunity to speak to employees who had completed the scheme and ask any questions they wanted.

    Most difficult question

    Interview tips

    Don't just research standard interview questions, be prepared to think outside the box and provide real-life examples.
