What would you do differently. -When have you worked autonomously- how did you manage work priorities to meet key deadlines - Please explain you written communication style- (I was asked to bring 2 examples) and talk through them
What are the major problems facing the health system into the future? Describe a time where you've worked as a team. Describe a time you had to solve a difficult problem.
Group interview involved scenario questions requiring problem solving and interaction with peers.
There were several rounds of assessment including group activities, written assessments and a more traditional individual interview. Many of the questions in the one-on-one interview were guided by public sector recruitment standards, however the whole assessment process was an opportunity to demonstrate how my individual skill set would contribute to improving the organisation.
Questions in the interviews are designed to see how well you work with others, and whether you would have the potential to be a leader within WA Health.
