All interviews in this year's recruitment round will take place virtually.

Selection centre 

The selection process will be managed through a virtual interview process on Thursday 16 May 2024.  

In exceptional circumstances we may amend this date. Every effort will be made to advise you in good time. 

You'll be given 48 hours, excluding weekends and bank holidays, to book your interview slot. 

Lay representative

A lay representative will attend the selection process to ensure that all panels are consistent and managed in accordance with the agreed process.

The role of the lay representative will be to: 

  • attend the virtual interviews 
  • ensure that decisions are fair and equitable

The lay representative will not score candidates.


You may be asked to bring certain documentation with you to the virtual interviews.

Failure to bring the specified documents may result in you not being interviewed.

If you're concerned you may not be able to bring the required documents, contact [email protected] in advance of the virtual interview. 

Please be aware that when you attend for interview, if it is found that you are not eligible for the post, for example, if you do not have enough experience, you will not be able to proceed with your interview.
