Group Interview and Skills Assessment Centre

Following review of the online application, applicants selected to progress to the next stage will be invited to participate in group and individual activities.

This session will involve a range of activities designed for applicants to demonstrate their skills in areas such as communication, team work and analysis of information. Some activities will be completed in a group setting and some will be undertaken individually. 

Further information will be provided to candidates invited to this stage. The group and individual activities will be conducted face to face at The Sutherland Hospital. 

Individual Interviews

Following the group and individual activities stage, applicants selected to progress to the next stage will be invited to attend an individual interview. This interview will involve a series of questions asked by a panel of interviewers. This stage of the recruitment will be conducted in person unless COVID‐19 restrictions prevent this from occurring at the time.

Prior to attending an individual interview, applicants will need to:

  • Complete pre-interview forms
  • Provide details of three referees.

After interviews are complete, employment checks and reference checks will be completed. Offers of employment will then be made to successful candidates.

All applicants will be advised in writing of the outcome of their application once the recruitment process has been finalised.
