    Okay, so I've never had a job interview with the NHS or in a Hospital and I'm wondering what the appropriate attire would be?

    I've only ever worked in childcare and sports, so this is a slight career for myself and I'm really worried about what to wear for the interview.

    In the past I've always gone with plain black trousers, a slim fit white long sleeved shirt and black tie - And I've always done well, but as said they've been for childcare and sports jobs.

    Whats the best way to approach a job within a hospital?
    The role is as a Senior Administrator/Receptionist within a Children's ward.

    I was wondering whether to wear my suit or stick with the black trousers and white long sleeved shirt w/ black tie?

    Any help would be great. (I'm a 20 year old male by the way haha!)
