    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Life Without Barriers (Darwin) in November 2019.

    Interview

    Applied online, had a group interview with 20 other applicants two weeks after applying. Had 1:1 interview 2 days after group interview.

    Group training involved scenarios, introducing yourself and background to the whole group, doing smaller teamwork activities and then presenting these to the whole group. There were four assessors walking around and listening to each group's contributions - you are being watched from the moment you step into the room! It was quite a fun experience and a lot more relaxed than anticipated.

    The 1:1 interview was a bit more formal and conducted by a panel of two upper management personnel. They didn't really ask about relevant experience/qualifications which was surprising. Instead they asked about my idea of the organisation, the job role etc. There were also about 3-4 scenario based questions. If you have worked with children before, answers are quite common knowledge.

    Interview Questions
