Great question! This year, the interview stage of the application process will be a little different to how it has been in previous years.
Participants whom reach the interview stage of the application process will be invited (via email) to complete an online video-interview. The online video-interview can be completed at any time that suits the applicant, but must be completed within the specified time frame- this will be detailed in the invite e-mail.
The online video-interview itself requires participants to answer a series of questions. To prepare, I'd recommend familiarising yourself with the NHS Healthcare Leadership Model (available here: www.leadershipacademy.nhs.uk/resources/h… ), and thinking about your own motivation for joining the NHS.
I believe that participants are given between 1-1.5 minutes to answer each question, and around 30 seconds to read the question beforehand. You will not be able to pause the interview once it's started, so I'd recommend finding a quiet location where you won't be interrupted. It's also good to check the quality of you're microphone, webcam and WiFi connection beforehand as well.
I hope this helps to answer your question. If you have any more questions, just let me know!
