    Interview Details

    Interview questions are quite standard like why you join the project, what are your background, how would you cope with challenges and difficult situations. I find it rather easy to cope with. The main thing they would like to find out is whether you would fit the group or not.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Lancaster University in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online using a simple and easy to fill out web application, asked to fill in a range of competency questions regarding both hard and soft skills along with uploading a digital copy of my C.V.

    This was followed up with a direct face to face interview with a panel of three people about 2 weeks later, this took place on the university campus.

    Interview Questions
    • Asked to prepare a 10 minute presentation about a project that have worked on in the past, this was then followed up with a series of question about how this experience related to the job. I have to say that i was supprised by the lack of technical questions based on the fact that this was an interview for a technical position.   Answer Question
