Fairly straightforward. As per the job advert and since this was a contract role not too difficult (you either fit the description or you are not invited). Interestingly my boss had not yet joined so it was a bit of a premature appointment.

Application

I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Oxford University Press (Oxford, England) in Nov 2021

Interview

2 stage interview process, fairly straightforward and well laid out. The first stage was a general meet and greet, with some competency based questioning. This was followed by a 2nd interview that included some homework, this involved producing some materials based on a single scenario. These materials are then played back to the panel with your reasoning and thought processes. This was followed by some more technical lead questioning and a Q&A so that questions from my side could be asked.

Interview

Two rounds, two interviewers each time. Taken in a fairly small meeting room. Very friendly atmosphere. They made sure you are at ease. There seemed to be an objective form that they have to fill in. Not sure whether the questions are standard as well. There was a seperate Excel test that lasted about 40 minutes.
