Values Based Competency Interview Questions for Clinical Roles
In 2012, The Walton Centre NHS Foundation Trust rolled out values-based competency interview questions for recruitment to clinical roles. These were developed by the Human Resources (HR) Department, to support recruiting managers and help ensure that new recruits exhibit and share the Trust’s five core values; caring, dignity, respect, openness and pride. These core values were developed by the staff in order to localise the NHS Constitution and provide the guiding principles that underpin everything the Trust does. From these values core behaviours have been developed to bring “The Walton Way” to life and ensure that these values are thoroughly embedded within the organisation and its employees.
