    Application

    I applied through an employee referral The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Somerset County Council (Taunton, England, England) in Oct 2018

    Interview

    Three men staring at you in one small office. Not a great interview. The interviewers did not come across as protectors and that they were interested in my welfare within the work place. Bad impression of the Council.
    Interview

    How soon can you start.
