OAQ Advice

Hello, I've been looking around for a while now but I can't seem to find much advice on how to fill out the questions. Should I just be listing my experiences of leadership, teamwork, ect. Or should I go in depth with a specific example.
All of the questions start with "provide an example" however most of the other threads I have read suggest to treat it like a CV and give multiple examples.
Also to what extent is the OAQ used later on in the recruitment process.
Thanks in advance.

If it asks for one example give one example, keep a couple others in your 'back pocket'.

The OAQ is used by the Area Careers Liaison Officer for both interviews prior to AIB, to help determine readiness to attend AIB. The tip is fill them out using a computer rather than a biro, don't waffle, be careful how you articulate your replies to avoid ambiguity and bear in mind the OAQ provides the framework for the questions asked at interview. Scant information = Lots of unanswered questions.
