    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at University of Sussex (Brighton, England (UK)) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Filled in application which was emailed, I then received an email inviting me to an interview.
    Interview process - It was just over an hour which included a 40 minute interview with a panel of three followed by a proofreading/summarising test using Microsoft Word.

    The interview involved giving examples of relevant experience as per the job description and person specification criteria.

    The test was 30 minutes and involved proofreading printed job descriptions and marking mistakes. Also summarising a large job description and writing up in the same formatting as the printed descriptions using Microsoft Word.

    All interviewers were very nice and gave me a tour or the working areas and a good inside as to what the job would involve.
