    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Bupa.

    Interview

    Phone call asking me to come in and was asked a series of questions regarding my competence. I felt a little nervous, but they were very welcoming and the lady asking me questions was very kind. However, it has now been 4 weeks and I have not heard anything back from them regarding the position..so have been left feeling uncertain about my interview performance.
