Guidance notes for potential job applicants

We all know that interviews are a two way process – is the candidate a good fit for the employing council and is the council right for the candidate; there are a few steps of diligence that can be taken by both sides to minimise the risk of an unsuccessful appointment.

For the Council – ensure that the Council has a sound mechanism for appraisal, objective setting and mentoring new employees

For the candidate – make your own enquiries about the Council, drill down in its web site and if possible speak to the outgoing Clerk

At the interview – quite often candidates have no questions for the interview panel, this is the opportunity to satisfy yourself that this is the job for you and ask searching questions such as:

[a] What will you expect the successful candidate to achieve in the first 3 months?

[b] How do you deal with staff appraisal?

[c] Whilst the Council is my employer, who will be my point of contact on a day to day basis?

[d] What is the Council’s attitude towards assisted qualification training?
