I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Cancer Research UK (London, England (UK)) in February 2015.
Two face-face interviews The fist went well very positive female manager and I felt very good about the organisation. A second interview was arranged and cancelled on my journey into London due to 'problem at home' with the interviewing manager. No apology or follow up interview was forthcoming the first interviewing manager resigned the day after the aborted interview. I applied for this role which was offering a salary will below my usual expectations because I thought it would be a great organisation to work for for cause i totally agree with. I was then informed that the role had been filled internally! Thanks for wasting time and money What a shame that this organisation appears to have rude, unprofessional incompetent senior management team. My advice is to unfortunately is to give this a organisation berth and save yourself both time and money.

I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Cancer Research UK (London, England (UK)).
The was a simple online application which asked all of the usual questions (e.g. why Cancer Research UK, why this role etc). I was then invited to an interview at their office in London. I was interviewed by two people from the department who were very friendly and it was quite informal questioning and a relaxed atmosphere. They asked me about the challenges that Cancer Research UK face, as well as my motivation for applying and other similar questions that focused on the role. I prepared by researching them online on their website and checking for any new developments in the news and that seemed to be enough. Later, when I joined, they said they look for friendly people that have potential and seem enthusiastic about the cause. They understood that not everyone would have a lot of experience.
- Some other interns got asked questions like 'If you were part of a salad what part would you be?' and 'what is your favourite holiday?'. These are just to make sure you have a bit of personality. Answer Question
An internship so no negotiation

I applied through other source. I interviewed at Cancer Research UK (London, England (UK)) in January 2013.
Applied via Jobserve/agency then receive more details of role. Clearly state that Cancer Reasearch does not discriminate on grounds of race age etc. CV submitted along with 5 others by agent - mine just got lost - I am over 50 with a lot of experience working in large organisations and have been very successful and more than meet their job spec requirements. This is not the first time this has occurred - Ageism rules in this organisation!

I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Cancer Research UK (London, England (UK)) in March 2012.
An easy and voluntary process! No actual hard questions asked, a good way to get your foot in the door of retail. You went to the store and asked about a job. It was useful to know someone in the store but not necessarily vital.
