I applied online. I interviewed at NHS (United Kingdom) in Mar 2021

Interview

The interview was so relaxed. I had 2 lovely senior members of staff interviewing me. I applied online, I recieved an email with an interview invite 10 days (ish) later, and my interview was not for another 2 and a half weeks. Long wait! My advice to anybody who has upcoming MLA interviews is READ AND STUDY THE JOB DESCTRIPTION/PERSONAL SPECIFICATION. They pretty much ONLY asked me questions which I was more than prepared for because I had studied the job description/personal specification, and had answers and examples already lined up.

Interview

Generally focused on stakeholder management. Make sure to engage them beforehand as the person they "like" best will secure the role rather than that which is most qualified. The key is to research the values of the organisation.

Competency based interview and followed by a panel. I had data sheets to look at as well as it was focused on absence. It took around 1 hour and was very difficult as I had not been told what was to be involved before hand

It was alright but i didn’t prepare a lot so I was lacking on my behalf. A tip I would give to those applying is to prepare beforehand and make sure you understood the interview processes in general.
