Attending interviews

We generally send interview invites out by email, so please check your inbox. This will include details of where your interview will be, the time and who to ask for on arrival. If it is less than 5 days before the interview date, we will call you to invite you and confirm the arrangements by email.

If you need to rearrange, please contact HR in the first instance and we will discuss this with the interview panel. Where we are told either on the application form, or once you have been invited, of dates/times you are unavailable, we will do our best to rearrange your interview – this will not always be possible however.

We will let you know in the invite email if you need to prepare anything in advance, such as a presentation, or whether there will be any exercises for you to complete on the day. These will be used along with the responses to your interview questions when the panel make the final selection decision. During your interview you will be asked to provide concrete examples to support your answers to questions based on the job requirements.

We are a Disability Confident employer. We are committed to interviewing all applicants with a disability who meet the minimum criteria of the job requirements. If any alternative arrangements are required, please let us know so that these can be considered.

You will need to bring to your interview:

  • Proof of eligibility to work in the UK 
  • All original qualification certificates relevant to this post, as listed in the job requirements
  • Any relevant identification documents for checking and recording for a Disclosure and Barring Service/Disclosure Scotland check, should this be required for the role

What happens next?

One of the interview panel will call you to let you know if you have been successful. We will then send you a conditional offer letter for the role within one week. If you are not successful, we will let you know either by phone or letter, and give you the option to get some feedback which will help with future interviews.
