Preparing for interview

Notepads and pencil

You can increase your chances if you spend some time preparing for your interview: 

  • Get familiar with the job description and person specification
    The interview questions will be based around these so think about what questions you could be asked and how you might answer them based on your experience and skills.
  • Research the council
    Find out key facts and information - our values, our approach, our services - and think about what you can bring to the council.   
  • Think of some questions
    At the end of the interview, you'll have the opportunity to ask some questions, so think in advance about what you would like to ask the panel.
