A Back to work interview is a meeting or process between the senior management team at your prospective employer and you. It’s an opportunity for the teams to ask questions about you, your employment history and your plans for the future. The goal of these discussions is to acquire an insider’s perspective of what working at their company may be like, from an employee perspective. In most situations, this meeting will be led by your hiring manager but it could feature members of your potential boss’s or manager’s direct reporting line or non-related members of senior management as well. The main aim of a back to work interview is to assess whether the individual would accept work in the light of what it involves and if he/she is likely to learn anything during their time in the employ. The type of questions you ask may depend on the job in question. Unless it is very clear what the employee’s intentions are, you should run through the range of possible jobs that might be involved.
