    There is freedom to go about your job in the way that you think is best for the charity.

    Little training on offer
    Very London focused, would have I love to London Head Office (GLH) to progress.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at British Heart Foundation.

    Interview

    Starts with an online application and scenario based multiple choice questions. If successful they will call you to arrange a face to face interview (usually with the area manager) in one of their shops. Next stage is a work trial in one of their shops which I was told would be 2 hours but ended up over 4 simply because the manager didn't have time for me (too busy chatting to visiting friends) left in back areas not knowing what to do, so just asked volunteers if I could help them. Last stage is another interview with the area and shop manager and then you find out if an offer is made.
