we do is review other people’s work or assess variances and explanations that other people have written for us. Things such as KPIs and PFIs don’t really come naturally as I’ve had no experience preparing, only reviewing and re-assessing that the fluxes are reasonable.

Talk about your critical thinking skills. Do some independent online research.

If they are calling you in for an interview, they already know your skill set. Don't try to be anything you haven't been, instead focus on how you've succeeded at your previous and current role. Emphasize your ability to manage projects and staff. Be personable, listen to your interviewer, and be mindful of their body language. If you do that, you'll be fine. Start talking about things your shaky on to fit a job description and things can go south kinda quick.

Also, research what you don’t know. You can prove that you know something in the interview even if you have never actually worked on it in your current position.
