    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Hays (Liverpool, England) in December 2017.

    Interview

    Applied through glass door, received a phone call a few days later which was the telephone interview. At the end of this i was invited to the Liverpool office for a face to face interview 2 weeks later. At the end of this interview i was invited to the assessment centre 2 weeks after that.
