    Associate Lecturer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Canterbury, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at University of Kent (Canterbury, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Interview involved a presentation to the full department, followed by questions, and then lunch, followed by an hour with the interview panel. Questions focused on my research, my teaching experience, my plans for publication. Everyone was very civilised and friendly - had one or two quite sharp questions after my presentation but not in the interview itself. You get a chance to meet the other candidates too, at lunch, so that's a bit strange - everyone being super-friendly but thinking 'am I more or less likely to get the job than this person?'

    Campaign Caller Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Canterbury, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at University of Kent (Canterbury, England (UK)) in February 2014.

    Interview

    The interview was fun and easy to be honest. All I can remember is the role playing part, where they pretend to be a caller and you have to read a script and act as if you're on the phone with them. You find out within a week whether you got the job or not.

    Student Recruitment Officer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Canterbury, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at University of Kent (Canterbury, England (UK)) in May 2013.

    Interview

    There was a standard application process of a cover letter and c.v. I went to my careers adviser for feedback and to make sure I was hitting the right note.

    I was then invited to interview: this was broken up into a 20 minutes presentation on why students should come to Kent, followed by a 30 to 40 minutes interview.
    -Presentation: I was criticised, in interview, for including too much detail. I get the feeling you're selling an experience rather than hard hitting educational details.
    -The interview was very depth: they asked industry based questions: what is widening participation, what are the funding bodies surrounding HE, what is HEFCE? What subjects other than the arts have suffered the most during the recession? How many students do we have here? What is our student to staff average ratio> They also asked question from the perspective of the student: why should I go to your uni for £9000 fees? Why should I study Economics here? And personal ones: How do you deal with stress? If you're manager were here list one thing she/he would say that irritates them about you?
