Here's what people have said about working and interviewing at NHS.
Bullying is nhs is rife its sad no one does anything managers and supervisors even union are corrupt
Support all NHS workers clinical/nun-clinical, stop the power driven managers who have no idea what they are doing other than making profit out of the venerable workers who leave their own families to care for our society. Healthcare assistant need more support, as their wages make it hard to afford good quality childcare.
For a Nursing Assistant the interview isn't difficult.
-Basic Maths and English test.
-Basic written questions about how you would handle situations.
-Short interview (lasted 5 mins)
Why do you want the job?
What hours do you want?
Would you work nights?
Basic care questions.
This is about 4 hours long, but most of the time you're waiting for others to be interviewed.
If you're successful, you then go to a week of classroom training 9-5, Mon-Fri. It is non paid, but in depth and useful. In your training you get a small test to pass.
Then you are on the wards for 3-5 placements. A nurse signs you off as able and then you can book shifts with bank or apply for a role on a ward.
It's a privilege, a honour! It's reliable! Trustful and consagrate
