    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cancer Research UK (London, England).

    Interview

    I applied online and was invited for an interview via email a couple of days later for the following week. It was a two person panel, both nice and friendly. I found the questions quite random really and stating ‘I’m going to ask another boring question’ so if they’re boring, change them!

    I chased up for interview feedback as I wasn’t contacted by the end of the week and was told a decision still hadn’t been made. Almost two weeks later and I still haven’t heard anything. I think at least letting people know they weren’t successful and offering feedback is the minimum to be expected. I certainly expected more from CRUK to be honest.

    Thankfully I attended another interview at another charity and was offered the job the same day!
