    Lecturer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience

    Interview

    it was intense probing question on demonstrating how to engage students through inclusive teaching.
    they were also keen on my cv details, trying to confirm my education and experience qualifications.
    They wanted to know which courses i could teach based on the options they advertised, and asked questions on the courses i chose.

    Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Interview

    I felt the application process was unfair. The role involved helping practical teaching materials. I worked in a similar role in a German university supporting the teaching of zoology to undergraduate students for 7 years. I have relevant BSc and MSc qualifications. I went to considerable effort to answer the points of the person specification. They wanted experience with animals; I have kept sheep, goats and poultry for many years, I have conducted research on wild birds, bats and mountain goats. But no interview!

    I asked for feedback and the manager Simon Clifford could not even be bothered to answer. I had to request three times, and then make a formal complaint before an assistant replied. It was really poor customer service.

    Yet, when I submitted another application as a 'joke' as Marie Baker,21, with no teaching experience and who was working in a care home and had previously worked on the deli at Sainsbury's got an interview! I made the application purposely bad.

    The university website says that 5 of the 6 teaching technicians are females.

    28 Feb 2020 – Recruitment Specialist - Talent Attraction

    Hello,

    This is a very serious accusation, and something that, if true, we will need to look into.

    Please can you email the details of the role to hr@nottingham.ac.uk so that we can investigate further. All of our shortlisting and recruitment panels are required to attend mandatory training to ensure that all recruitment decisions are made based on the strength of the application in regards to the person specification. If this is not happening, we need to know to ensure that the relevant people are made aware of the proper process.

    Data Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Nottingham, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at University of Nottingham (Nottingham, England) in January 2020.

    Interview

    Interview was carried out professionally. Staff were personable and understanding, but it was competency based questioning, which are generally robotic. However rejection was received within minutes of the interview, which was not professional at all, making it seem like an internal candidate was already in place.
