    Placement Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Manchester, England

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at BBC (Manchester, England).

    Interview

    I applied for the R&D Industrial Placement Scheme at BBC in 2019. The process was quite long as they only start the shortlisting process after the deadline. After applying online, they send you an email with the details for the interview. The dates are set so there is not much mobility.
