    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at BIS (London, England) in September 2013.

    Interview

    The process was quite straightforward with just one interview with a panel of 2/3. I don't think the questions were too difficult but I was probably just not a good match. I wasn't particularly inspired by the people interviewing me and so was not that disappointed when I did not get the role. What was good was that they gave me feedback about my interviewing technique after I was unsuccessful which some places do not.
