Preparing for Interview

Interviewing for a role you really want can be a challenging experience, but not one that you can’t overcome... if you prepare! 

At Nua we understand people, their needs and how to support each of them to reach their full potential. And by the way, we’ve learnt a thing or two about our current and potential staff teams along the way. The below notes are intended to support you throughout the application and interview process which we hope you will find helpful.

We look forward to hopefully welcoming you to the team in the near future!

  1. Dress professionally and make sure you are well groomed
  2. Prepare your portfolio using the role specific self-assessment form provided to you via email by our Recruitment Team. [If you have not received this, please email requesting same. Interviews are facilitated through: (a) Introductions; (b) Information Gathering; and (c); Closing Questions
  3. Do your research on the service and in particular; the role you are applying for
  4. Bring a copy of your portfolio [self-assessment form, updated CV, a cover letter and Garda Vetting form]
  5. Bring a notebook and pen. It’s okay to jot down some notes during the interview if it helps you remember key points for address or questions towards the end of the interview
  6. Rehearse the interview with your family or friends; be sure to get key points across about your qualification, relevant experience and your desire to do the job
  7. Don’t be late! Always give yourself some extra time for travel [If your interview is being held in our Head Office in Naas, please note that parking is metered, so please ensure you bring coins with you to avoid delays]. 
  8. If you have any queries or would like to talk to us casually about a particular role, or indeed any potential upcoming roles, please call or email our Recruitment Team.

Lastly, you should note that depending on your location, we may suggest a Skype interview.  If this is the case, please put the same effort into this as in-person interviews, as it will be conducted to the same standard.


If you are up for a challenge and would like an opportunity to progress and learn; then Nua is the place for you.

The experience you will gain working with Nua is second to none and the training offered is focused on the individual's development in their career.

Working in Nua gives a great sense of achievement when you see the outcomes for the people we support, and I can say I’m truly proud of the work we do.
