    Many opportunities for personal growth.
    Encouraged to put your ideas across, they treat you like and adult
    Make friends and learn to take an interest in the local community. People are grateful for the work you do

    Cons

    Needs to work on promoting its "at home" work and less on the foreign aid
    People in high positions do not normally have operational experience & make decisions that are unpractical to apply in the field

    Major Donor Team Internship Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  London, England (UK)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at British Red Cross in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    I filled in an online application form and then was called, fairly short notice, requesting me to come for an interview.
    When I went to the London HQ I was interviewed by two really friendly young women who really made me feel at ease. They both introduced themselves and their roles and explained what the intern position would involve. The questions they asked were all completely relevant to the position and no unexpected questions - I definitely felt they were genuine and not trying to trip me up like I have done with other interviewers in the past.
    I then had to complete a 40 minute writing task, which comprised writing a thank-you letter to a recent donor, using a case study document as something on which to base my letter.

    Negotiation Details
    They were very flexible on negotiating the days I could work and were happy to accept that I would not be able to commit to more than 3 days per week as this was not a paid position, and therefore I had to have some time to earn some money too.
