What is a competency based interview?

    Competency based interviewing assesses future performance based on past behaviour. It can give valuable insights into an individual's preferred style of working and help predict behaviour in future situations.

    Questions will be asked to draw information required to support the key competencies of the role.

    Questions may be worded in the format of “Can you give me an example when…?” or “Tell me about a time when you…”

    Responses should be structured to describe a situation or task, the action you took and the end result.
