  • How has your job affected your life?
  • Can you tell me an interesting story relating to your job?

  • What is your availability like w/c 16th December?
  • Are you currently subject to any disciplinary hearings?

Some tips

  • Record the self-tape via your phone or other device - make sure to film in landscape
  • Include your head and shoulders in the shot, please don’t film yourself too far away, alternatively ask a friend to hold the camera for you
  • Keep the phone/device as still as possible and find a quiet environment
