    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Royal National Lifeboat Institution (Poole, England) in April 2016.

    Unlike other applications you do not need to submit a CV.

    Before you are offered an interview you must first record two videos answering two questions from your laptop, tablet...

    Make sure you are in a well lit room, neutral walls, natural light is the best if possible.
    For extra kudos include something in the background that makes you stand out ie; surfboard or a lifeboat.

    If successful you'll be invited to interview usually the closest location to you, if you havent stated otherwise.

    The Interview day consists of a group/ panel debate and a 1:1 interview with competency questions and role play.

    • I was asked to speak passionately for 5 minutes about a topic from a list given. The list ranged from candles to sport activities. I choose travel.   1 Answer

    Volunteer Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Poole, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Royal National Lifeboat Institution (Poole, England) in October 2018.

    Interview

    Written exercise - handwritten, no use of keyboards. Followed by a group role play - where everyone had to compete with each other in a short space of time. It was a very unrealistic role play - unlike any meeting I've been to. It was quite a gladitorial setting.
