    Interview

    When employers are advertising job vacancies, they will produce a job description (an outline of the job, including a summary of the main tasks and responsibilities) and a person specification (the type of person they wish to attract, including essential and desirable criteria). These are available for each job on NHS Jobs.

    Job vacancies are usually filled through open competition, so you need to ensure that you read the job description and person specification fully, before making your application. In order to be short listed (invited for interview) for a position, candidates must meet at least all the essential criteria outlined in the person specification.

    More general information on job descriptions and person specifications can be found on NHS Jobs.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at NHS (Glasgow, Scotland (UK)) in January 2019.

    Interview

    5 situational questions, very difficult and clearly designed for someone already working in this industry as the questions were mainly based around the health industry but were very specific and not general interview questions at all. Spent ages trying to answer questions and overall not a good experience
