    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Dar Al-Handasah.

    Interview Details

    I got the interview through an employee referral then the interview took place one week later through Skype. It was a video call from the principal office in London and took around 90 mins. The interview was smooth and half the way through it it turned so technical. I had to explain in details what was my tasks which made me feel that they were serious in hiring a person for this position.

    I was not offered any package but they kept in touch via emails because it took them around six month to send me an offer. I was interviewed in March and got the offer in September.
