    Interview process

    5 different group tasks. 5 people all together. 1st was to talk for 2 mins about ourselves, who inspires us, one little known fact. 2nd was to build a tower out of paper clips and paper as a team. 3rd was half an hour training session with the dogs. 4th was to give a 5 min presentation on either "The benefits of a canine partner" or "The psychological implications of needing a canine partner later on in life". 5th was to list key skills required in this role, as a group.

    Most difficult question

    The most difficult task was the last one, where we had to agree on the key skills required in job, out of a given list. Everyone thought different skills were more important or should come first

    Interview tips

    Be yourself, be keen, be friendly, be light-hearted. There is not a lot of preparation that you can actually do before-hand but make sure you know what the company does and why and the benefits of a canine partner. Show them how you can make a difference to the team and what you can bring.
