Have you ever seen a presentation ever? Watch a few, steal some ideas.


As long as you're clear and confident there's nothing really you can do wrong at this stage.

Make sure you rehearse it. To an audience.

I did one for my specialist interview for a Firefighter, mine was all about ourselves though, but yeah as has been stated be clear and confident, im guessing pick a current affair you find interesting that should make it easier to remember. I know its easier said than done but stay calm, if you can refer back to other peoples presentation in yours, this will gain you marks for listening to others, also ask questions to others if you can, and prepare for questions being asked to you about your subject. the 5 mins flew by for me so im sure they will for you as well.

Smj - as has been said, 5 mins will flash by. You have to understand what the aim of it is, especially as you're going to be an analyst. Essentially they will want to see you take a subject, summarise it, and suggest what you think will happen next.

So they're testing your confidence, ability to communicate, ability to explain a complex topic simply and succinctly, and your judgement.

You'll need all those and more in your preferred role.

Appreciate that this likely a 'how long is a piece of string question' however, does anyone have any idea as to how long the wait usually / from their experience, is to hear back following a Specialist Interview?
