Hey, are you preparing for every behaviour/competency? I read in the description that they're assessing us on 3: Working Together, Communicating & Influencing and Making Effective Decisions.. Does this mean they're only going to be asking questions based on those behaviours?

An hour 30?! Wow I didn't know that! I'm going to prepare today and maybe do the interview tomorrow.

Strength based questions you can't really prepare for - they want natural answers and can tell when you're reciting rehearsed things. They just want to find out what you're good at naturally, what motivates you and what makes you thrive etc. For example "How would your friends describe you?" "What are your weaknesses?" "How do you keep yourself motivated after a setback?" "When did you achieve something you are most proud of?"

I hope this helps - I'm no expert on the behaviour-based questions but the strengths I feel come naturally
