(12 Posts)

I've been shortlisted for the above post and have an interview next week.

I feel fairly prepared although I've been asked to arrive 15 minutes early for my interview where I will be given a topic to prepare a 10 minute presentation!

Has anyone experienced this before at interview? or could anyone help with what I should expect?

Any help really is very much appreciated.

Its for a fairly small community hospital ... mainly elderly rehab and palliative .

thank you so much in advance.

Band six usually get asked for a presentation, maybe four or five slides (if PowerPoint) at two minutes talk per slide and it includes your intro and asking if any questions.

Your interview may be based on competencies depending on where you are.

If elderly rehab I would prepare on falls, chronic/long term conditions, self management of same, prevention of hospital admission and (again depending where you work) maybe integration of health and social care; certainly integrated team working - by prepare I mean maybe look at government policy in your area and the hospital's team, read around their website and so on.

Remember they will be keen to take you on and if you are qualified and competent you are doing them a favour coming in, try to relax smile

Awwww sorry to hear it. I was doing interviews today for a band 4, we interviewed 8 people and six of them were excellent, the Team Lead said it was really hard to tell the ones where weren't given the post afterwards. I can only say try not to take it personally and keep applying, your application must have been good. flowers
