Interviews

If your application is successful we will send you an email inviting you to an interview.

We advise that you spend some time preparing for your interview:

  • research the Council and the area the role is in. What do you think you could bring to the team?
  • the interview is also an opportunity for you to get to know us, so make sure to come prepared with questions you'd like to ask the panel
  • be enthusiastic and let your personality shine

On the day:

  • interviews will usually take place at the Council Offices in Knowle Green, but this depends on the role
  • on arrival you should report to reception, someone will come to greet you and take you up to the interview room
  • you may be required to complete a short test as part of the selection process, but you will be informed of this ahead of the day
  • there will usually be 2 or 3 members on the interview panel, one of whom will be the manager of the advertised role. The panel will ask questions and make notes as you answer
  • we will let you know at the end of the interview when you can expect us to inform you of the outcome
