Q1. Tell me about yourself and why you will make a good manager for the NHS?

SUGGESTED ANSWER:

“I am a focused, enthusiastic and highly organised manager who takes great pride in my ability to help my employer achieve their organizational aims. Having strong values and ethics, and also having a desire to work in a large, multi-talented organisation like the NHS, I believe I will make a great manager because I am calm under pressure, able to motivate people to get the most out of them, and also able to manage and deliver multiple tasks and projects all at once. I fully appreciate that with being a manager in the NHS, there comes a huge amount of responsibility. I am not only ready for the challenge that lies ahead, but I am also eager to prove to you my worth as a strong and impactive manager within your organisation.”

Q2. Why do you want to work for the NHS?

SUGGESTED ANSWER

“I want to work for the NHS as a manager simply because my own personal values are a strong match for those of the NHS. For example, I will work with my team to ensure everything we do is focused on a commitment to quality of care, helping to improve people’s lives and also ensuring we work for everyone inclusively, regardless of their background, their circumstances or their beliefs. In order for the NHS to be effective in its strategic aims and goals, it requires its managers to lead by example, and I am ready to do exactly that whilst focusing intently on the NHS values that are at the core of everything it does.”

Q3. Tell me what you understand about the NHS values and how you will apply them with this managerial role?
