    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Medical Research Council.

    Interview

    Interview with two people followed by a chat with people currently working in the role. The interview was great and enjoyable but the chat with current staff wasn’t very structured or prepared for so felt like I was interviewing them
