Preparation really is the key to a successful interview.
You'll need lots of evidence to demonstrate your skills. Think of different scenarios in past roles or volunteer positions you could use as examples. Spend some time thinking about what general questions and role-specific questions you may be asked. How would you reply to them? You will feel more confident entering an interview if you have predicted – and practised – some of the questions.

- Ask us questions – drop in to a 20 minute session to run through some key questions or concerns
