Congratulations! You’re about to attend an interview for a career HC-One – The Kind Care Company. When we meet you, we want to see you at your best so here’s some help and guidance to help you along the way!


So the most important thing here is preparation. Good preparation will steady any pre-interview nerves and allow you to give the best possible account of yourself on the day.


Here are some suggestions to help you plan:



Plan your journey so you know how, where and when you’ll arrive.

Make a note of who you are due to see and what position they hold within HC-One.

Do your research on HC-One. Looking at our website will give you plenty of insight and can often answer some of your questions.

Do you need to bring anything? For example: Certificates of Achievement, References, Identification, it’s always good to check!

Do you need to prepare anything? For example: a presentation.

Re-read your application and make sure you can talk confidently about everything.



Collate any examples or qualifications that could enhance your interview.

Try and put yourself in the interviewers shoes – what job related questions would you ask?

Write down all the relevant skills and attributes you feel you have for the role.

Note down any questions you’d like to ask us, remember interviews are two way!

Practice your interview with somebody who is able to give you honest feedback.

Make sure you have thought of your dress code.


Introduce yourself clearly and be prepared to have a general conversation with the interviewer until you are settled.

Body language is important during an interview, so ensure you have good eye contact, are sitting facing the interviewer and are listening intently?

Make notes if you need to, as long as you ask permission from the interviewer, this can sometimes demonstrate active listening skills.

Make sure your personality comes through as we want to see the ‘real you’.

This interview is as much for you as it is for us, you need to make sure that HC-One is the right choice for you and somewhere that you’d love to work and fit in, so feel free to ask us anything.

Try not to be too nervous, take a breath, and compose yourself before answering any questions.

Don’t be afraid to ask the interviewer if there are any questions you don’t fully understand.

At the end of the interview, if we don’t explain the next steps, feel free to ask, so you understand what will happen next.


If you have the contact details of your interviewer, you could email them to say thank you for their time and that it was nice to meet them and look forward to hearing the outcome.

If you are unsuccessful it’s important to understand why, so don’t be afraid to ask the interviewer for feedback.

Good luck.
