Mission: Oxford University Press is a department of the University of Oxford. We further the University's objective of excellence in research, scholarship, and education by publishing worldwide.
I have been working at Oxford University Press full-time
Excellent work/life balance as well as great support from colleagues and management
Lack of direction going forward with some projects
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Oxford University Press in August 2012.
OUP always has a two-step interview process - the first is more general, often with the hiring manager - and the second will likely involve a task relating to the job role in question.
After getting hired and now being on the 'other side' of a recruitment process, it is clear that there are no standard interview questions - the hiring manager is expected to come up with questions and tasks each time. this means you may get mostly general questions, or you might get more 'behavioural' style - it is different each time.

We are delighted to have been able to help in Book Aid International's efforts to support the work of War Child UK, and the rebuilding of the University of Mosul’s library.
