    Difficult Interview


    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Met Office.


    Fill out the application form, very long and detailed. Following this I got called for an interview which was made up of a 45 min written exercise on strategy, a 10 min presentation and a 45min interview with 3 members on the panel. Following this I received an offer which I had 7 days to accept and following this a security check is done which can take anywhere from 6 weeks upwards

    7 days to accept offer which was not really negotiable, they have strict salary bands.
