    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at London Underground (London, England) in June 2014.

    Interview

    London Underground / Transport for London use a lot of contractors across the business. I was hired by an agency and for a role with an immediate vacancy. An initial interview with the agency, followed by an interview by the recruiting manager. The total contract was 6 months and it was asked to be extended but I declined as had another role to go to.
