    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Alzheimer's Society.

    Interview

    A fairly straightforward interview. The questions were standard and not too challenging.The work based tasks portion was excessive. There were three tasks to do in 15 minutes. One of the tasks involved some basic data analysis and would have taken about 15 minutes to do properly on its own.

    I left the interview unsure if I would take the job if offered; mainly because the office was a bit grim and people didn't seem particularly excited about working there. I got the feeling that one of the people on the panel was roped in at the last minute.

    Interview Questions

    • None of the questions were particularly difficult or challenging.   Answer Question
