    Average Interview
    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Sykes Cottages (Chester, England, England) in Apr 2021

    Interview

    2-stage interview, stage 1: questions with a presentation and stage 2: meeting with the head of/team. Unfortunately, I didn't get the role, but I have also not received any constructive feedback. The role has also changed e.g. requires more experience (qualified accountant (4 years PQE)) and has been opened to external candidates, which I would understand, but from the feedback I was under the impression someone had been hired internally. Disappointing, as the presentation took me a long time to prepare (4+ days over a bank holiday) and ultimately a waste of time (due to poor feedback). I've had a couple of disappointing internal interviews now, and I would be unlikely to apply to more
