I've been working in the NHS for a year and have an interview in 2 weeks for a band 5 position in research and clinical trials. It's a bit of a mixed role including supporting patients participating in research and the admin side. Does anyone have any tips for band 5 interviews? I'm very excited about the role but I've only had two job interviews in my life (am mid 30s) so I'm quite nervous about the interview.
Any information on research in the NHS or interview tips would be great?
I would check the JD and PS and make sure you can evidence all the essential criteria and as much of the non essential as able. Have a look at the trust's values and 5 year plan, especially around research. Look at some good outcomes from recent research projects to show what a difference good research can make etc etc
Well done filling in the application form!!! I just nearly completed one but it asked about education and there is nothing relevant I can put in. It seems to be more about degrees and such like. There is no way I could leave it blank so tried to delete it but it wasn't having it. As I am at work at the moment I had to leave it!
