With my interview coming up very soon I’m really struggling on putting my answers down using the STAR method.


My questions are as follows.





Working with others.


Any help would be greatly appreciated as I’m really struggling at the moment.

Have you been provided with access to the competency framework or have you tried searching for it online? It can vary from force to force but basically the foundations are that it explains whats expected and from the various competencies. 

I find that using the star method makes things easier to put down, take teamwork for example:

  • What was the problem that required you to use teamwork
  • What did you and what role did you play
  • Did you succeed and what would have happened if you didn't.
  • Could you have done anything differently?

You just really need to rack your brain and think of things that you can use. You've obviously been through your search assessment interview which would have used the star method so I'm sure that you'll be fine with this.
