Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at NHS in August 2014.

Interview

Took about 1month to respond to initial application. Invited to assessment that consisted of a typing a lists of addresses from a sheet onto a word document. Also had to arrange various numbers in to lists of smallest to largest, and then carry out a competency test on patient samples, ensuring all the correct information was on the label for each sample. Overall this took 1 hour and was extremely easy.

the nextday I recieved a phone call to say I had had passed the assessment and was invited for an interview. This was more difficult with all the typical interview questions as well as some more related to the role such as how would I handle a particular situation.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at NHS (Middlesbrough, England (UK)) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I had to fill in the general NHS job application. Employment history, personal statement, etc. After the application I got interview date within 1 week. Once arrived at the interview I was shown around the lab, I noticed that the person showing me around was making notes such as: friendly, asks relevant questions (remember that if you are shown around the lab it is already part of your interview.) It was panel interview, chief biomedical scientist and senior biomedical scientist. They were both asking questions but interview didn't feel very formal. Made me feel relaxed so that was nice
