I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Associated British Foods.

Interview Details – Applied through recruiter, 2 interviews, online numeric and verbal psychometric assessments. First round with line manager and HR, competency based and technical questions, second stage informal with FD. I applied through a recruitment consultant. The role was advertised as being suitable for skilled applicants from any industry background, however I felt my interviewers were looking for knowledge of ways of working within specifically FMCG, Food, which I did not have.
