    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Alpha FX (London, England (UK)) in March 2018.

    Interview

    A short interview of 30 minutes with 2 people. First interviewer was 'good cop' and the second one 'bad cop'. They were really good at explaining the role but not so much about the company itself. Job spec as really vague and they didn't offer feedback.
