If your application for a post with us has been successful, you will be invited to attend a values-based interview.

Your invitation to interview will ask you to go online to confirm your attendance and choose a time slot. If you have not already registered with Trac jobs you will need to do so in order to do this. A link and instructions will be provided.

Once you have confirmed, you will receive confirmation of who your interview is with, the venue and time of the interview and any other information relating to the selection process.
 
Values-based interviews
At North West Boroughs Healthcare, we are passionate about delivering high quality care for our service users and carers which aligns with our Trust values and NHS England's 6Cs of nursing – care, compassion, commitment, courage, communication and competence. 

We believe the 6Cs don't just apply to our nursing staff, but to every member of staff working for our Trust.

With this in mind, most of our interviews include values-based interview questions which link to both the 6Cs and our Trust values.  

The aim of this style of questions is to find out more about you as an individual and understand how you align with our values to find out if you're suitable for the role. 

During a values-based interview, you will be asked to provide real life examples as part of your answers. Interviewers may also ask you supplementary questions to find out more about these examples.
 
Other selection methods
Depending on the type of role you've applied for, we sometimes use other methods to find out more about you and how you fit with our organisation and the role you're applying for.

These might include a presentation, a written exercise, a roleplay or a short case study. For senior or specialist roles, we may also ask you to complete a psychometric test or take part in an assessment day.
