Attend an Interview

As part of your application, once we have received your CV, you will be invited to a professional, competency-based interview where you will be asked questions which aim to find out how you have used specific skills in your previous experience/role and how you approached problems, tasks and challenges.

One of our team will be in touch to arrange a date and time that suits you.
