    Graduate Trainee General Scheme Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at NHS Management (London, England (UK)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    30-40 minute interview with a former trainer and a senior manager, preceded by some interaction with current trainees in a more relaxed setting. The interview questions were competency based and focused on past experiences. Best tip is to have a clear idea of your motivations and a catalogue of various experiences to draw from with an idea of how you contributed in various situations.

    Finance Graduate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at NHS Management (Birmingham, England (UK)) in January 2012.

    Interview

    I completed the online assessment that included a psychometric, numerical reasoning and aptitude test. The tests were all fairly standard; typical practice tests available online were preparation enough. I was informed I had passed the tests after a couple of weeks and was invited to the interview stage at Birmingham City Football Club's stadium. There were a mix of graduates at different stages of the scheme there to answer questions etc. The interview was conducted by three employees who asked various questions, and it took c. 45 minutes. I waited for another couple of weeks to hear I had not progressed to the next stage.

    Interview Questions

    • There were no particularly difficult or unexpected questions. They asked about the 2011-12 budget cuts, overcoming problems, examples of leadership etc. Whilst the questions were atypical I clearly didn't answer well enough.   Answer Question

    Applications Support Team Leader Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Manchester, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at NHS Management (Manchester, England (UK)) in April 2010.

    Interview

    Main interviewer was very concerned about disability as her opening question asking very direct questions regarding ability to work and adjustments required yet this was the first interview and no assessment of my skills had taken place except for the review of the CV which had secured the interview.

    Whilst the interview panel understood the technical topics required the main interviewer didn't. She contradicted herself a number of times in her mis-use of technical terms causing questioning to clarify her meaning, when pressed further she admitted there was a sickness problem in ther area ~ I can see exactly why this exists.

    Interview Questions

    • Opening question as 'Our HR department have a couple of questions we need to ask so we will do this first. Do you consider yourself to have a disability under the 1995 DDA act?'   1 Answer

    Strategic Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at NHS Management (London, England (UK)) in March 2010.

    Interview

    I was phoned about the role by a recruiter who said he wanted a 'quality' candidate. He interviewed me twice and put my resume (CV) forward. I was then asked to do a series of skills tests (all very manageable). This lasted pretty much all day. I was then asked to attend the formal interview (I had been shortlisted with someone else from the original pool of 6) including a case and presentation to a panel. This was straightforward though I could tell these folks had not seen anyone with private sector sector experience...For those who don't know, the NHS (in general) is very incestuous and precious about itself, despite the fact that it is run by public sector lifers (zero experience in private sector) ..After this exercise, an offer was made. All of it was fairly straightforward and not rocket science for sure. A good candidate just needs to get his/her foot in the door from where you can move within the system (largest employer in Europe!).

    Interview Questions

    • how do you deal with a difficult colleague over whom you have no line management authority?   1 Answer
    • how do you achieve work life balance?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    if you come from outside the NHS, you will start at the bottom of the pay scale, regardless of what you earned previously or how bright you may be...so be forewarned.
