Inclusion is about being valued, respected and supported. We focus on the needs of every individual and ensure the right conditions are in place for each person to achieve their full potential.

    Executive Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Winnersh, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at BD (Winnersh, England) in January 2020.


    Tick box exercise for showing diversity prior to selecting the already chosen internal candidate. Was invited by the talent team and therefore will claim my expenses..totally wasted my time. I realised it as soon as i walked into the presentation when you find all similar middle aged, dressed in suits and tie white men..
