Application

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Great Ormond Street Hospital (London, England, England)

Interview

The process took a month to complete, and included an initial literacy/numeracy and IT test before a second-stage panel interview. The panel who interviewed me were friendly and welcoming, and chatted informally before commencing the interview. Previous advice given to me by past applicants was to engage with the informal discussion, because doing so greatly impresses the interviewers and gives them a good impression of you as a person. I was told by the interviewers and past applicants that roles at GOSH are highly competitive (over 100 applied for the role I interviewed for), and employees remain very loyal to the Trust. HR also try to process ID checks and references within 15 working days, with a start-date not being set until these are completed.

Interview Questions
  • How would you deal with a difficult situation involving a patient/colleague?
  • Tell us about a time when you have worked in a team?
  • How do you prioritise your workload to ensure tasks are completed to designated deadlines?
  • Tell us about a time when you provided excellent care to a service user?

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 months. I interviewed at Great Ormond Street Hospital (London, England, England) in Oct 2018

Interview

Interviewed by 5 senior managers on a range of topics related to quality, performance and project management and then this was followed up by a meeting with the Board, which I was not made aware was part of the recruitment process. They said you have been successful after the interview, but after meeting the Board I was told that there is no point in working for an organisation if "they don't like you". I was shocked, but not surprised as being from a BAME group I have experienced racism in the NHS for some time, but never in this way.

Interview Questions
  • Why do you want to work at GOSH?
  • What is your relevant background?
