    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at The Body Shop (Littlehampton, England) in May 2013.

    Sent off a cover letter and cv, this then progressed to a telephone interview. The next stage was an assessment centre, had to prepare a case study before and there was also a group discussion with other hopefuls
