What the team say
Our interviews are a chance to talk about you! We want to explore your values and skills, so it’s always a great idea to look at the job description and think about how you can relate it to your own life. It could be a time where you worked well as a team in work, or when you supported a loved one through a difficult time.
We want you to relax and talk from the heart. Everyone at Penumbra Mental Health is really friendly and you can be sure that the team interviewing you on the day will just be really looking forward to meeting you. If you have any questions, drop us an email. And good luck!
