Person Specific Interview Questions

Recommended Posts


Hi Gang,


I'm currently a PSV acting as an Area Coordinator training teams to use the HHR used for Community Speed Watch.

Next week, I have an interview with a neighboring force for a police staff role, working  as the scheme Coordinator for their CSW program that's about to start. 

The 'Advice for Interview' sheet supplied states the questions will come from the Person Specification rather than the job role. 

Can anyone offer words of advise as to what I might expect?

Thanks in advance!

Reasonable Man

The Person Specification will describe a number of qualities required for the role. Every Force is different and may name these as different things. The should be things like ‘Team Working’, ‘Problem Solving’, ‘Decision Making’, or similar. Usually half a dozen of these.
Interview questions will be designed to allow you to show how you demonstrate those qualities, you need to understand the level required and the relevance of your answer to the role.
