    1 and 2 are soft skill based

    1 is more around self-management, getting your work done, planning work, getting on with the job, helping people.

    2 is about being a team player. What have you done working as part of a team say covering for others, mentoring new colleagues.

    3. This must be like your current day job, surely? For example, someone calls you and says monitor is blank. You can't check it because you're on the end of a phone. Is the power on? Is the PC turned off? Has the fuse gone? Is the whole office down? You need to show you can think for yourself what the cause of the issue is.

    4. Only you know if you have really worked on those. If you haven't, don't lie because you will get found out.

    5. Well, you've been doing it for 5 years...

    Best of luck.
