    Marketing Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at British Heart Foundation (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    The interview process was very brief. I applied online and was invited to come in to interview face-to-face (no telephone interview). For the interview I was asked to prepare a presentation discussing what I would plan to do if I got the role which was simple enough. In the interview itself I started with my presentation which was followed by some fairly standard interview questions. About a week after the interview I received an email notifying my that the role had gone to someone else. I requested feedback but they did not respond.

    Interview Questions

    • Fairly standard questions, e.g. "What is your experience working in this field?", "What do you think will be the most challenging aspect of the role?" etc.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at British Heart Foundation (London, England (UK)) in May 2016.

    Interview

    The interview wasn't too bad but Marketing Manager wasn't a pleasant guy. The rest of the team was fine.
    They should have informed people that the new person will build the innovation department when they haven't got one

    Head of IT Project Management Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at British Heart Foundation in September 2015.

    Interview

    There were two interview stages - first with the CIO and CFO, then with the CIO and chief strategy officer
    The first interview was very relaxed and informal, then second less so, but both were done well.
    The second interview included a presentation, and then a set of 'tell me about a time when you' competency based questions. The presentation topic was related to what you would do to help them deliver their five year strategy, The competency based questions were fairly normal - influencing change, dealing with teams and dealing with a lot of conflicting priorities.

    They seemed to know what they were doing, and had a very clear idea of the person they were looking for (sadly not quite me), which is refreshing in this sector where so often organisations have no idea what they need in IT project management.

    Communications/Brand Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at British Heart Foundation (London, England (UK)) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Online application including CV and cover letter. They provided a very thorough job description which was good to know exactly the role you are applying for (don't always get such detailed descriptions!) and this made the interview easier to approach. The interview was a positive experience - interviewers very friendly and welcoming. However, I felt it was very structured in which they asked very specific questions. For example there was no "Tell me about yourself" the questions were a lot more specific to the role and to the BHF itself - not very much chance to talk about yourself or your experiences which was surprising.
