  • Let's get into those Support Worker interview questions and answers.

  • The first one is, tell me about yourself and why you want to become a support worker?

  • This is pretty much guaranteed to be the first interview question and my tip for answering

  • it positively is: the best way to respond to this interview question is to focus purely

  • on the skills and qualities you have that will enable you to become a competent support

  • worker.

  • Here is my suggested answer.

  • “I have a good work ethic, I have plenty of experience in helping people, and I also

  • have the ability to follow rules, regulations and procedures.

  • The experience I have gained in life so far, both personally and professionally, I feel,

  • will ensure that I carry out the role of a Support Worker to the necessary standards.

  • I want to become a Support Worker simply because it is a job I feel the most comfortable in.

  • I really enjoy making a difference to people's lives, and I also gain a tremendous amount

  • of job satisfaction when I can visibly see the difference my work is making to others.

  • I totally understand the level of responsibility that comes with being a Support Worker, and

  • you can rely on me to be consistent in my work, be available to work the hours needed,

  • and also maintain exemplary standards throughout.”

  • That is a brilliant answer and it gets you off on the right footing for the remainder

  • of your support worker interview.

  • You can either pause the video and write down those answers if you want to, or if you wait,

  • I will tell you where you can download my full set of support worker interview questions

  • and top scoring answers.

  • Let's move on to the next question.

  • Why do you want to work for our organization as a support worker?

  • Now, my tip is to carry out a little bit of research into the organization you're applying

  • to join as a support worker.

  • During your research, choose some positive aspects about them that you can then use in

  • your answer.

  • Here is my suggested response.

  • “I am always very careful about the organization I work for as a Support Worker, as you have

  • to have the support needed to carry out the work professionally.

  • When I first saw this position advertised, I carried out a little bit of research to

  • look into your care standards and also the code of conduct you expect your staff to adhere

  • to.

  • I feel if I am successful today at the interview, and I get to become a Support Worker for you,

  • the standards you expect from your staff and the standards I personally work to, will be

  • very much closely aligned.

  • You are clearly a professional company who cares, and you also only employ people who

  • want to provide the best service possible to patients and clients.”

  • That's another great answer!

  • Now, when you're ready, I still have some to work through, by the way, so please do

  • stick around, but you can CLICK THAT LINK in the top right hand corner of the video.

  • It takes you through to my website, PassMyInterview.com, where you can download my full set of support

  • worker interview questions and top-scoring answers.

  • Let us now move on to the next question.

  • How would you prioritize your workload as a support worker?

  • This interview question is clearly assessing your ability to not only take on lots of work,

  • but can you also prioritize what needs to be done first?

  • So let's give them an answer that shows you are a highly organized and efficient support

  • worker.

  • Here it is.

  • “I have plenty of experience in prioritising my workload, and I understand that I will

  • be responsible for a large number or patients and clients as your Support worker.

  • I would prioritise my work by ensuring a fair and consistent approach to all tasks.

  • I would assess what needed to be done first, before making sure my work was through and

  • in line with my training and the organization's regulations and procedures.

  • There will, of course, be times where I need to amend my working day in order to respond

  • to urgent tasks or support work, and I am confident I have the adaptability and the

  • flexibility to meet the ever-changing demands of the role.”

  • Next question, a nurse asks you to give some medication to a patient.

  • What would you do?

  • So this question is assessing your honesty, integrity and professionalism.

  • And there is only really one correct way to answer this question.

  • Don't get caught out!

  • Unless I had been trained to administer the medication, I would say no.

  • Although I am someone who will always help out wherever possible, one thing I will not

  • do is breach the code of conduct.

  • I am not currently trained to give or administer medication, and on that basis, I would politely

  • refuse and explain the reasons why.

  • At all times whilst working as a Support Worker, it is my responsibility to provide excellent

  • care for my patients and clients, and to achieve that goal, I have to follow my training and

  • the rules and procedures laid down by the health organization I am working for.”

  • That's a professional answer and that is the correct way to answer it.

  • Of course, if you have been trained to administer medication, it is a different matter altogether.

  • However, you have to make sure you follow the rules and regulations.

  • Very important.

  • What are your strengths and weaknesses?

  • My tip for answering this highly is when preparing your answer to this support worker interview

  • question, is make sure you provide three strengths one weakness, and also state what you're doing

  • to improve upon that particular weakness.

  • As I say, give them three strengths (that's important), just one weakness, and then state

  • what you're doing to improve upon the weakness.

  • That's a great way to answer this question.

  • Here we go.

  • One of my core strengths is my patient and caring nature, which means I will be able

  • to meet the necessary care standards expected of your organisation.

  • The second strength I possess is my ability to effectively manage a large workload.

  • I am a hard-worker, I will never complain, and I will always go about my duties with

  • positivity and determination.

  • Another core strength of mine is the fact I am flexible and adaptable, which means I

  • will work with you to make sure you meet your support work objectives.

  • In regard to my weakness, the only one I believe I possess is that I sometimes find it difficult

  • to ask for help.

  • I am someone who takes great pride in my work, and I prefer to figure things out for myself.

  • However, I do understand how important it is to ask for help when needed, as there are

  • lots of experienced people within an organisation who would be willing to help me out if needed.”

  • So that's great, because it is loaded with strengthsthere is one weakness, and you

  • are telling them exactly what you are doing to work on it!
