Interview processThe interview was at an assessment event day held at one of the potential charities for the scheme. There were a few group exercises in the morning to test our creativity, communication and team work skills. The first was a task where we worked in a group of three and had to make notebooks according to a sample provided we had to provide an estimate for how many we would be able to complete within a time limit. For the second task, again in groups of three we were provided with a potential task which might might have been asked of us if we had the job. We had to discuss what we would do in groups and then present to the room before answering questions. Then there was an individual case study interview where I read three potential ideas to invest in within 15 minutes then was asked to discuss which idea I decided upon and my reasoning for this. There was then a competency based interview where I was asked to talk specifically about times when I had demonstrated different skills. Each interview had two interviewers and lasted for 15 minutes.
Most difficult questionI was asked 'If you are not accepted onto this scheme what will you be doing instead?'
Interview tipsDo extensive research into the third sector and issues within this. Ensure you can express and formulate your interest and motivation for working in the third sector. Plan your day carefully since there will be travelling involved and waiting around between tasks. Expect a relaxed culture at the organisation, this is not a very formal interview. Plan and practice a large range of competency based questions- for instance what are your weaknesses and how have you worked on these? name a time when you have used your creativity etc
