    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at learndirect (Sheffield, England) in December 2014.

    Interview

    two stage interview process first with hiring manager, then with hiring managers line manager. First interview was fairly straight forward and informal, hiring manager came across well. Second interview was tougher, but again both intervewers came across well
