    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at University of Leicester (Leicester, England) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Interview by the team leader of the Central Research Facility and another member of the animal technician team. Was instantly helped with feeling at ease with the process. The interview was broken down into several sections including Commercial Awareness, Skills and Competencies etc. Alot of the skills questions were very STAR orientated, requiring examples from previous work experience. Each person took turns asking me questions relevant to their area. Afterwards, was taken for a very insightful tour of the facility.
