    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Marks & Spencer (London, England) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Initially I was contacted through LinkedIn, this was then followed by an phone interview, very basic, which then led to a mock assessment via email.
    Commercial Analysis with action plan presentation for 90mins, swot plan with 30, 60 & 90 day actions. This is then followed by 30min interview, about previous experience and what you can offer the business.
