    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at National Foundation for Educational Research (Slough, Berkshire, South East England, England) in April 2019.

    Interview

    Well organised, painless. Three people interviewed and there were two written tasks. One written task involved editing, the other summarising data. Took a while to respond and still waiting for feedback.
