    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Science Museum Group (London, England).

    Interview

    They advise you to not plan anything for that day as it can take up the whole day.

    I applied online then received a call a week later asking me to come in. They also emailed me the times and where to meet and that I should prepare a short presentation on my favourite place.

    Day consists of a greeting with managers then various group tasks which you must perform well in. You must make sure you stand out. This is because after the group tasks you get eliminated based on your performance. And if you did well you go for a 1:1 interview. There's normally a lot of people at the recruitment that's why they advise the whole day because you don't know when you are going to get interviewed unless you put your hand up first to go first.

    1:1 isn't too intense they ask you general life experience questions like ones about yourself, when you had to use a specific skill/ quality or normal questions referring to your last job. Interview takes about 10-20 minutes. Make sure you plan beforehand.

    Received a call on the same day saying I got the job. They normally want you to start ASAP so a long notice period from your previous job will not suffice.
