Interview Tips & Advice

Research the role

Research the role

It is possible that you may be asked about the organisation and its sector that you have applied to work for. Make sure you have researched the organisation and understand the values of the organisation and what it is they strive to achieve.

Visit the organisation’s website and any other industry sources that are available to you. The more you know about the organisation, the better.



Arriving in good time will prevent you feeling flustered and stressed. Preparation is key to feeling calm. Know your application form and take a copy to the interview with you.

Speak clearly, don’t worry if you need to take a few moments to consider your answer. Remember that the interviewers are normal people, they may be nervous too!

Prepare your answers

Prepare your answers

It is common to face a number of questions surrounding your strengths and weaknesses, developmental areas and successes. Make sure you are able to provide examples of your achievements and how you can contribute to their organisation. Practising with a friend may help.

Take copies of your certificates, portfolio of work and any other relevant documents that have been requested. Schools will also ask to see copies of your ID.

Ask Questions

Ask questions

Prepare 5 or so questions to ask the interviewer, this will help to demonstrate your interest in the position. The questions should be about the job, and some should delve deeper into the culture and goals of the organisation.

Look Professional

Look professional

Set off in plenty of time and avoid being late. Know your route, location of interview, date and time. If possible do a dummy run. Know who you are meeting and their roles, if possible.

Prepare your outfit. Don’t be too casual; if it’s suitable for a social occasion it’s not right. If in doubt, go the traditional suit and tie or for ladies, smart work attire.

Cover tattoos and do not reveal too much flesh. Avoid too many accessories, keep makeup subtle, have neat hair and always clean hands.
