    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Home Office.

    Interview

    I was greeted at reception, then moved to a small interview room where there was only myself and the inteviewer present. What was perhaps supposed to be a standard, by-the-book interview quickly changed into an informal, friendly chat between the two of us. The atmosphere was relaxed.
