It was great, however there is a need of improving the process especially in the situation where there is a possibility for aptitude test,it should clearly state prior to the interview that there will also be a written test before oral interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Actionaid (London, England, England) in Dec 2018

Interview

After having applied online I was shortlisted for an in-person interview with three people at ActionAid London. I was told that I would first have to take a one hour test, then have the one hour panel interview. Upon arrival, I was led straight into the panel interview room and the interview started right away instead of the test, which was very confusing. One of the panel members was really nice and friendly, the others looked bored and it almost seemed like they had already chosen the candidate (I was the last interview). The questions were straight forward, related to my experience for the role, why ActionAid, etc. The test was more difficult than the panel interview. In only one hour, there was an excel test to complete (budget report) and a word test (proposal to amend). I was told that I would hear from them three days after the interview. On said date, nothing. After reaching out, I was told that it would actually be another couple of days for them to be able to let me know their decision. Still nothing - I had to wait another two weeks to receive an automatic reply from HR. Not a very feminist organisation :)
