What hours do you actually work, on average?
What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
Be passionate about wanting to be a leader in the non-profit sector. This will take you a long way. Otherwise, show off any related experience to demonstrate your commitment to the sector and the competencies you have learnt. Be prepared to be flexible about location and type of non-profit and role within it, although do be honest about what you are prepared to do work-wise (e.g. I said I could only work in central London so they accommodated this).
Do you have any interview tips?
The psychometric tests are first - you will have to complete the first of these within 24 hours of submitting your application and the second 24 hours after that. If you fail either of them then you may still get on the scheme as you are put on a waiting list. There are 2 assessment days, which seems like a lot, but the second one is narrowed down so much that only a few don't get through this one. On the days be confident and friendly. They want to see how you would fit in the cohort as a whole, so show that you get on well with people on the day. There'll be team building exercises e.g. building the tallest tower with newspaper, written tasks on current issues in the sector, group exercise e.g. developing a new community based service and individual interview (with a 5 min presentation on the second assessment day). It's not half as scary as it sounds and you feel as though they want to get the best out of you so are very encouraging.
