Interview was due to last an hour, but lasted just thirty minutes. Panel questions mostly consisted of those asked for in the original online application, requiring repeat of answers that had already been detailed thoroughly in the online application. Rejection followed day after interview. Feedback provided, but not something that could be absorbed beyond gaining niche skills only of relevance to that role and not of general use in wider industry.
