Applicants for our Trainee IT Trainer job proceeding to the final stage will be invited to an informal interview and mini-presentation/training session. For this we ask you to prepare a 15-minute presentation where you teach a small group of us how to complete a simple task in a Microsoft application. Up to four owls (but probably less) will all be sat at individual desks with a Windows PC (not Macs) each to mimic one of our training courses. We would like candidates to prepare a training session that follows this early morning training session:
Note that this is a very untypical Wise Owl course; most of our training is considerably more advanced than this!
We would like you to prepare the next follow-on session to the same group:
There will be a projector and trainer's laptop available (bring any pre-prepared files on a USB memory stick), a whiteboard to project onto and either a flip-chart or magic whiteboard sheet on the wall, along with board pens for writing any instructions/content. Please do use the board as we would like to see your board writing skills!
We are looking for confidence, humour, liveliness, clarity of explanations and a well thought-out logical structure as well as a good knowledge of the subject. If things do not go as expected, do not worry! Just show us that you can handle the unexpected in a calm, professional manner.
If there is anything you would like to ask about the company or the presentation interview, please do contact Jenny.
We thank you for your interest in joining the Wise Owl team, and look forward to meeting you!
