Depends on the specific job, experience required and salary.
Usually lasts for longer and is much more detailed.

Most applicants have made the initial shortlist based on their prior experience, qualifications and a strong first interview performance.
The second interview assesses what the applicant will bring to the employer and working environment in terms of attitude, skillset, contacts, client following/profits.
Some of the questions can be a bit intrusive while trying to determine how compatible the applicant is with the corporate culture and company image.

This is for an entry level position with the salary being the national living wage. I'm just concerned about your comment of it being 'intrusive'. Does this mean personal questions?

They should tell you what’s expected. Often it’s to meet and impress a wider selection of people

Sometimes personal questions do get asked, depending on the interviewers and recuitment traditions.
Can be information about your past studies or any volunteering experience you have mentioned.
Sometimes questioning your future plans or what you like to do in your spare time.

I think when they say personal questions it is to establish your personality and what you like doing in spare time more than anything more sinister. Good luck. It really isn't that bad.
