    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Royal London (Edinburgh, Scotland) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Interview was brief and focused around the role specific skills and organisational fit. Some questions were competency based, like 'Describe the time where you had to manage stakeholder expectations', other questions were more focused around technical skills and past experiences. Overall, the atmosphere was relaxed and friendly - made me feel at ease.
