We also use competency based interviewing questions where you will be asked to provide examples of how you have demonstrated competencies in your previous roles. When answering these questions make sure you talk about a specific situation. Start by describing the task that you needed to complete, explain the action you took step-by-step, and then tell us the result or outcome of that situation.

Will I be expected to provide referees?Yes, as part of the selection process you will be asked to provide at least two referees who the recruitment team can contact by phone or secure online process. It's preferable these referees currently are, or have recently been, your direct manager/supervisor. References will only be conducted by our Talent Acquisition team once you have given permission for your nominated referees to be contacted.
