    Interview process

    The initial stage in the interview process, was to fill out an online application form, and then to read aloud a portion of a fundraising script over the phone, which would later be listened to by members of the recruitment panel. Based on this fundamental test, candidates where whittled down to a select number, who were invited to an intimate interview- consisting of two members of University staff.

    We had an initial conversation regarding my application, and hat I hoped to achieve in being a representative of the University. In following the discussion moved on to a set number of questions relating to my competence in talking to people; my passion for the fundraising campaign; as well as my previous work experience.

    Most difficult question

    Outline where you have, in a pressurised situation, shown strong signs of leadership and ingenuity?

    When, in the past, have you shown your ability to resolve disputes?

    Interview tips

    Research the role before the interview.

    Read over you application.

    Ensure you are acutely familiar with your CV, and your positive qualities.

    Do research on general interview questions, so that if you are asked these, you will have a confident answer prepared.

    Be sure of where and when the interview will take place, and also who will be taking it.

    Arrive early, well dressed, well rested, and with a clear head, ready to converse in a clear and confident way.

    Experiences at the assessment centre

    It was a very positive experience. I was able to answer all questions concisely and competently. I had researched a great deal before the interview, and was clear on the role I was applying for, and why I wanted the role.

    The interview panel were the amicable and were comfortable to digress from the main interview script - allowing me to improvise, and provide pragmatic responses in a conversational manner. This style, I think, meant they were able to glean more from the interview than they would basing the interview on a generic format.
