Difficult Interview

Archive Support Officer Interview

Archive Support Officer
Swindon, Wiltshire, South West England, England (UK)

I applied through other source and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at English Heritage in November 2010.

Interview Details – The position was advertised in the local paper but the job description was generic and much more complicated than was actually needed to do the job. Vacancies are also advertised on the company website and you can register for job alerts. The application form on line is really good as after you have filled it in for one position you can use it again if applying for another job as your details are remembered. Interviews may be by a panel of line managers concerned with your particular role. It is good to do some research prior to interview and it may be possible to go on a tour to find out more about the place where you will be working. Water is provided at interviews and staff take it in turns to ask questions. You may need to sit a test for some roles. People are selected for interview according to their skills experience and appropriate attributes for the role. A reserve will also be selected in case someone does not turn up.
