Questions to ask at the end of an interview

As the interview finishes, you may be invited to ask questions. Having 2 or 3 of these ready is always a great idea! You may have a technical question about a system or product used, or a question based around the role itself, the team or company.

Whatever your questions, make sure they are not ones which have been answered already as part of the interview.

  • What do you enjoy most working at x company?
  • What are some of the challenges you see in this role?

When the interviewer tells you a challenge, try and answer back about your experience dealing with that challenge in the past.

  • How big is the team I will be working in and what are they like?
  • What do you think would make someone successful in this role

When the interviewer provides the answer, try and answer back about how you align to this.

  • Would their be a handover for the role? Who would that be with?
  • Could you tell me more about the culture in the team/organisation?
  • Why does the the vacancy exist?
  • What are your expectations of the role in this first 90 days?
  • What does success in this role look like?
  • What is the management style/your management style like?
  • What does a typical day look like for this role?
  • What are the next steps in the recruitment process?
  • Is there anything further I can provide you to support my application or that I have not covered?
