The Hammersmith interview course covers the full interview process at all grades in depth using our unique and successful system of Hot Seat coaching, interview-question based interactive lectures and knowledgeable, experienced Consultant lecturers. We provide the latest insights on pre-interview visiting and key success strategies for Consultant interview candidates, and in separate sessions cover the important CV and job application details you need, in depth, for ST interview candidates. We are very proud of our reputation, and we work very hard to ensure that you get maximum benefit from attending the course.
Why choose this course?
"I just wanted to tell you that I have actually been on another interview skills course, and the gulf in class between you and them is staggering. Your course, the presentation, the materials were truly excellent. I have attended many courses in my career - this one was the best by some distance. Thank you again - you have changed my life."
We can't promise to change everyone's lives, but we do know that this course is the best interview skills course because you keep telling us it is! The Hammersmith interview course has been established for several years as the leading interview preparation course in the UK. There are naturally other interview courses that come and go - we are flattered that the organisers of those have been or sent people on the Hammersmith course to learn from us as the leaders. But no other course uses an extensive interview-experienced Consultant faculty like ours.
"This course should be a must. It is outstanding. I have never attended such a well-delivered, focussed, concise and utterly relevant course as the Hammersmith interview skills course."
The course is totally designed to prepare you thoroughly for interviews, and we are proud of our track record which speaks for itself. Please look at the testimonials page - only a fraction of the hundreds that we have received over the years - which is why, in one survey, 95% of attendees come by recommendation. Don't risk using the inferior copies. Don't risk being taught by registrars. Don't pay ridiculous money to be "facilitated" or "coached" by human resources people or "communication consultants". Are they working full time in the NHS with senior responsibilities? Then come back and book on the Hammersmith interview skills course and relax - knowing you've made the right decision for your interview and your career.
The interview skills courses on Saturdays are held in the Reynolds Building at Charing Cross Hospital, Fulham Palace Road, W6 8RP, part of the Hammersmith Hospitals NHS Trust. This is a spacious facility offering air-conditioned comfort for meetings, with modern audio-visual equipment. Links to Google Maps for Hammersmith Interview Course
