What is the interview process like?

6 answers

  • Relaxed and friendly.
    It almost didn’t feel like an interview

  • Not too bad normally general question.

  • The interview process is usually quite brief, and comprises a panel which may seem daunting but in fact is not at all and there may well be a service user present (who may well be more scared than you are!) Mostly the service user will have very clear guidelines and be trained for the interviewing, especially as to what to say and what not to say, and so will not challenge too vigorously. If they do, they will not be invited to sit on the job interview panel ever again! The ;content; of the interview is really quite basic and you will be expected to express an interest in mental health and to present as being someone who is loyal to the organisation. You may be asked if you have a relative who already works for the mental health trust, and often, if this is the case, your application will be significantly favoured-- as this organisation values workers who are loyal to colleagues and management whatever the challenges particularly when the post is for in-patient acute care.

  • When being interviewed will it be infront of a panel.

  • Quite informal and friendly

  • Relaxed and informal
