    Senior Community Fundraiser Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at British Red Cross in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    Online application followed by interview where I was to complete two scenario based questions (15mins provided) then completed a 5min presentation and then interview questions.

    It felt very much like all the information provided in the application wasn't even read or taken on board as all of the questions were very basic and common sense and I felt like I had repeated myself so many times. When it came to the presentation, the panel seemed completely surprised that I brought along some supporting documentation for them to look at while I did the presentation! One panel member clearly had no interest in the whole process, was rude multiple times and couldnt wait to leave - quickly threw on her jacket as I was about to leave the room. The one question I had for them about what its like working for BRC they couldn't even answer which made me feel like it wasn't the right place for me.

    No follow up or feedback provided since the interview which is very disappointing considering the Red Cross need all the support they can get. I'm unlikely to do any volunteering with them now either.
