Good morning everyone.
I posted last week about wanting to return to work, after a year off on Maternity leave, I joined my last role 6 years ago as a office manager, and progressed to standalone HR Manager and completed by level 7. I got some fab advise that I had proofed by ability progressing and qualifying but lacking confidence, all very true and a year off with a baby!
I have been offered an interview on Monday for a fixed term contract as a HR Adviser, part of this process is a 45 minute work related test. I have not completed one of these before, can anyone give me any insight on what this is likely to entail? I am very nervous and lacking confidence after a break from work, and my concern is if I am unprepared for the test, it will affect my confidence going into the interview afterwards.
Also any tips on how to prepare for the interview? I have a wealth of experience, and got to this stage through competency based questions on the application, so this fills me with some confidence my skill set meets the job, but i will feel better if I can go in with some answers prepared, and do not want to go in with a ton prepared answers and they ask me completely different things. I know I cannot fully prepare but after a while out of the workplace this feels very daunting!
Thank you for reading and I hope someone will offer me some advise/support :)
