Interview tips

What capabilities do we look for?

Capabilities are the personal attributes or behaviours that are important to our business. They’re what lead our people to perform exceptionally in their chosen roles, and as such, are integral to our assessment process.

We want to continually challenge our performance and deliver the best possible experience to our customers. And therefore, we’ll look for you to possess some, or all, of these capabilities, as listed in the job description of the role you are applying for.

Our 14 capabilities are listed below, with a short definition of what they mean to your performance and our business.

Customer orientation
Process management
Respect for others
Communicating and influencing
Working together
Understanding others
Developing others
People management
Achievement drive
Commercial awareness
Flexibility and change orientation
Analyses and judgement
Strategic orientation

How can I prove these capabilities at interview?

When answering capability-based questions at interview, we suggest that you follow the STAR model below, being as specific as possible and focusing on your individual contribution.

Step 1 – Situation

Describe the situation you were confronted with. What were the circumstances? Provide some context to help the interviewer understand the situation. Make it concise and informative, concentrating solely on what is useful to the example.

Step 2 – Task

Describe what you needed to achieve. What did you need to do? Provide some context as to the result you were working towards.

Step 3 – Action

This is your opportunity to highlight your skill in the capability being assessed. Now that you have set the context of your example and outlined what you wanted to achieve, your next step is to explain what you did, why you did it and how you did it.

Step 4 – Result

What was the outcome? Did you achieve what you wanted to? What was the impact for you, others involved and the business? Use this as an opportunity to explain what you learnt from the situation.
