What Should I Focus on in My Metro Bank Interview?

Your interview is a chance for you to demonstrate your relevance to the IT support manager role. The interviewer's questions will allow you to express why you are a good fit by bringing in good examples of your previous experiences. The scenarios and skills you choose to describe should suggest that you can handle the position's inherent responsibilities. Employ STAR method to give clear and concise answers. 

What Is the Metro Bank Telephone Interview Like?

This is often a preliminary interview. These questions are essentially competency questions, and the interviewers are looking for you to provide examples of where you have displayed these competencies in the past. The STAR method will help you organise your answers. See JobTestPrep's STAR method pages to find out more about how to answer in this way. The telephone interview has some advantages over a regular interview - you can wear comfortable clothing, and keep your answers written out in front of you, but it can also contain the same pressure as an interview when it comes to answering questions.
