    Research Assistant Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at NESTA (London, England (UK)) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Normal application (CV, letter), one Skype interview, one in person. For the second interview I was offered to skype as well, if necessary.
    After the first interview, I was asked to complete a written exercise, which I got a brief and several days (over the weekend) for.
    Quick, friendly, kept me updated on progress, even apologised when feedback to a little longer then expected

    Interview Questions

    • Quite a bit about my previous role, some scenario questions ("What would you do to achieve x if we had already tried y and failed?")   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at NESTA (London, England (UK)) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I was put through by a recruiter, and having seen my application, via the recruiter Nesta asked me to write about an innovation I thought was effective and why. Then put through to face to face interview for which I had to present on an article they provided.

    Interview Questions

    • I was required to present. Then asked about my experience, they asked in particular whether I wrote a blog or put my ideas out there.   1 Answer

    Rater Not Say Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at NESTA (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Luckily the process was quite direct, just a CV and cover letter. There wasn't a long online application. This was followed by a first interview, a task completed at the office, a presentation and a second interview.

    Interview Questions

    • The interviews focused primarily on the parts of the job spec labeled 'optional'. They aren't optional.   Answer Question

    Programmer Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at NESTA (London, England (UK)) in September 2013.

    Interview

    The process included submitting a cover letter and CV, and then I had two interviews. The first was a shorter, less formal interview. The second required me to prepare information and a presentation ahead and was demanding. I spent days preparing at all stages. I can't recall if I needed to do a written exercise as well, but this is often standard practice at Nesta for many roles.
