Shortly after you have made your booking, we will contact you to ask you to email us relevant documents such as your CV or application form, as well as any job description and person specification you may have been sent (if you have a specific job in mind).

The session itself can be conducted in many different ways depending on your specific needs. Typically, sessions run as follows:

  • 5 minutes: Discussion of prior experience, concerns, expectations about the interview process, agenda for the session.
  • 10 minutes: Mock interview under timed conditions to assess your strengths and weaknesses and identify areas on which work is required.
  • 30 minutes: Work on key interview techniques to address weaker areas and introduction of key frameworks to bring structure, personalisation and confidence into the answers.
  • 40minutes: Further practice, including mini mock interviews.
  • 5 minutes: Q&A session, body language and other issues.
If, after the session, you need advice on specific points, we remain at your disposal through our post-course support service, which allows you to contact us at all times with your queries.

What Our Clients Say


"Just thought I would let you know that I was successful in my second round interview for the partnership position at Belvoir Health Group, so thanks to you and Olivier for your advice. I had to do another PowerPoint presentation and discuss a scenario. I kept the second presentation to just 5 slides and was much better prepared.

Thanks for your help- will recommend you in the future. I got the job ... subject to agreeing terms and the decision being ratified by the wider partnership. Thank you so much. You enabled me to get closer to presenting myself accurately."


"I had an offer of partnership soon after my session. I will be joining the practice in July and thank you once again for all the excellent coaching."


"I'm not sure you remember me but I just wanted to let you know I was offered the partnership post i applied for. Really wanted to thank you for your help. Was definitely useful."


"The interview was good and the questions were all expected. I even was able to understand what I could have improved in my answers. That is a good beginning. You opened my eyes to what the interviewer was trying to see when he was asking questions, that is the greatest achievement. Thanks again for all the help. I have been offered a GP partnership and have accepted the same. Wanted to thank you for the help provided with the interview preparation."


"Dear Julia, Just to let you know that I had an interview last night. They rang last night to offer me a part term permanent position as part of a job share (not just the 2 yr contract I was anticipating). Very pleased. Most tricky question I was asked was what would I choose as my desert island disk!!! Many Thanks for your help."


"Interview was yesterday afternoon, I got the job! The interview went well, I was happy with the presentation; all the questions I think I had anticipated, and I was very happy when I left the room. Much to my surprise, I did get asked about my weaknesses, and I used your suggestion about delegating (or not!) also conflict resolution, and pretty much all the other questions I went over with you. It has been a long journey to get here, and it still hasn't quite sunk in. It was definitely worth those two hours of interview practice, Julia. Thanks again, I would love to buy you a drink and tell you all about it. I'll make sure i recommend you and ISC"
