Competency Based Interview Skills

The purpose of competency-based interviews is to find out how you have used specific skills in your previous experience and how you approach problems, tasks and challenges.  The answer is then matched against pre-decided criteria and assessed accordingly.

Preparation is key if you want to be able to answer all questions without having to think too much on the spot at the interview. 

You will develop an understanding of the type of competency-based interview questions you may be asked and learn how to identify and prepare structured examples for the skills and competencies that you may be required to demonstrate.

This masterclass will benefit you if you wish to maximise your performance and sell yourself during a competency-based interview.

 By the end of the training you will be able to:

  • Understand the competency framework and which skills and experience are being assessed
  • Analyse the Job Description, Selection Criteria and Person Specification in relation to the role
  • Review your experience to date and how it matches the post
  • Identify and structure appropriate examples
  • Present your evidence clearly, focusing on ‘I’ rather than ‘we’
  • Develop your personal credibility and professionalism
  • Formulate appropriate questions
  • Approach the interview with confidence
