Job interview/application by Anonymous

Sector: Secondary
Position: Senior Teacher
What is your advice about? Job interview/application

  1. Most recruitment processes will ‘score’ your letter. Even if it’s an internal role make sure it’s brilliant.
  2. If they use an agency for the process it probably means they’re desperate (and stupid). You’ll find yourself doing things twice – Stay calm.
  3. If you’re given a tour of the school this is not a time filler. The pupils/staff giving the tour will be asked their view, so don’t come across as an arse or be too quiet.
  4. If you have gaps in employment/education you will be asked about it
  5. They likely need you more than you need them. Therefore ALWAYS negotiate over pay.
