If you are successful in the aptitude tests, you will be invited to interviews. The first of these is likely to be a quick telephone interview: you can consider this a ‘getting to know you’ discussion, with some questions about your CV, qualifications and experience, as well as an opportunity for you to ask questions.
The video interview is usually completed through Microsoft Teams. You may be interviewed by one or more of the recruitment team, and can expect both situational and competency-based questions.
You can find out more about the 15 competencies that Nationwide looks for in employees on its website, but here is a basic idea:
- Risk Management
- Commercial awareness
Through the video interview, you will be asked to give examples of times when you have demonstrated these competencies.
Virtual assessment centre
In some cases, if you are successful in the video interview you will be invited to a virtual assessment centre. Much the same as a physical assessment centre, this is a gathering of several applicants to take part in further interviews and activities.
In the virtual assessment centre, you can expect to have interview time with senior managers from the business area that you have applied for and/or other leaders. You are also likely to be asked to complete a group exercise with a presentation to assess your communication, teamwork and listening skills.
