I am Ingrid a Carer and an Involvement Volunteer at the Rosewood Involvement Centre in Ollerton Nottinghamshire. Today I was a member of ERIF ( EMployment resource Interview Forum ) at Wathwood Hospital. The position was for band 4 who will be employed in the Wathwood new Lodges .
There were 7 candidates who were interviewed in a forum, the Panel consisted of services users, Ward manager, Carer and the 3 Rosewood volunteers from ERIF. This was a 1st for ERIF interviewing in this way ( forum style ), and we all felt this procedure went and worked very well. We hope we can use this forum styile again on more interviews in the future and when ERIF is supporting other service users in hospital on interviews we are hopeful that this experience and new way can be adopted again.
Once all the candidates had gone, the interviewing group gave points and discussed who we felt met the criteria for the position offered . Fantastic Real involvement Great to work on ERIF again and as always wonderful supportive involvement of service users at Wathwood, also great to be involved with Nottinghamshire Health Care Trust, Rosewood Involvement Centre and ERIF.
