    Interview process

    My initial step to gain the interview was an online application describing qualifications and experiences in a face to face roll and dealing with high work loads, the application lasted around 20 minutes. The next stage was an invitation to interview received via email. At the interview I was met by a member of staff and asked to wait, I waited for around 5 minutes before being greeted by a member of the panel and escorted to the room to meet the other 2 members. We sat in the room and got the formalities of introductions out the way during the first 5 minutes, the panel then explained they were going to ask questions related to the post and whilst one would ask questions the other 2 would write the answers and change from time to time. It was a very relaxed interview and jokes were pushed around to ease the pressure on all parties.

    Most difficult question

    Describe a time when I have had to deal with high work loads and stress on top of that, how did I cope and what would I have done differently?

    Interview tips

    Be relaxed, dress as required (ask before hand if not stated) be professional but also sociable, i cracked jokes (maybe out of nerves) but it worked, I was told they would let me know in 5 days but I got a call after 5 hours. Portray yourself how you would want someone going for that position to portray themselves to you.

    Experiences at the assessment centre

    Relaxed and informative, no pressure to answer questions quickly, members of the panel were easy going and made the experience alot more enjoyable.
