    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Cancer Research UK.

    Interview Details

    The was a simple online application which asked all of the usual questions (e.g. why Cancer Research UK, why this role etc). I was then invited to an interview at their office in London. I was interviewed by two people from the department who were very friendly and it was quite informal questioning and a relaxed atmosphere. They asked me about the challenges that Cancer Research UK face, as well as my motivation for applying and other similar questions that focused on the role. I prepared by researching them online on their website and checking for any new developments in the news and that seemed to be enough. Later, when I joined, they said they look for friendly people that have potential and seem enthusiastic about the cause. They understood that not everyone would have a lot of experience.

    Interview Questions
    • Some other interns got asked questions like 'If you were part of a salad what part would you be?' and 'what is your favourite holiday?'. These are just to make sure you have a bit of personality.   Answer Question
