Is anyone out there who could give me some pointers as to what to expect from this? I have been self-employed (arts administration mainly) for the good part of the last 15 years and this will be my first interview for a permanent paid job in a long time. I've never worked in HE before and wondered if there was a protocol? REALLY want this job BTW! Thank you.
Thank you Mammas. It's a PA role in the Faculty of Academic and Student Affairs. I'm going to have an informal interview too before the formal one. I take it that that's normal? Interview/conversation with colleagues about the job and the department?
Yes, I've been looking at the website and trying to educate myself in the many departments. I'm sure it will be fine but as I've never worked in HE before I'm just wondering what the culture is like? How grilling are the interviews? The job description and application were certainly very specific and the application had to be carefully considered!
In terms of what to wear, I'm thinking quite laid back but smart?
