We have been asked numerous times by candidates “What kind of questions should I ask at my interview?” so we thought that we would give you a helping hand & provide some examples of questions that you may be asked & questions you can ask the interviewer. 

This is such an important part of the interview process and shows to the employer that you are organised, well-prepared, keen and interested in the company and the position that they are recruiting for.
