The interview was not so bad. The panel was not very welcoming and suspicious about my changing job role so quickly. Never happened to me before. I clearly requested at the end of the interview a constructive feedback that I never received.

They didn't provide feedback because they are careless. I have worked for King's for over a year on a temporary contract. I know what their policies say and assure you HR do not always comply with them (yet expect other employees and interviewees to comply, hypocritically). For instance, they never notified me a fixed number of months before my contact expired (contrary to one of their policies). They were sloppy and notified me AFTER the month they should have. When I went for interviews after contract expiry, it was a nightmare getting feedback. For one interview, not a single panel interviewer passed my application status to HR! When contacting HR, they did nothing for while before finally taking action. Shows you how inconsiderate they are. Here is a tip for you. If you want feedback on your interview performance, ask in the interview if they have a policy stating feedback could be offered. If the interviewers are unsure, ask them if they can offer feedback explaining the decision. If they do have a policy and don't give feedback, you can always raise a complaint against the panel for flouting their very own policy.
