    I have been working at British Heart Foundation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The organisation is constantly looking to improve it's performance and try new ventures.

    There is freedom to go about your job in the way that you think is best for the charity.

    Cons

    Little training on offer
    Very London focused, would have I love to London Head Office (GLH) to progress.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at British Heart Foundation.

    Interview

    2 interviews with different managers over a 3 week period.
    Different Interviewers each time, the first interview was much more relaxed and chatty. The second interview was way more tough with many more questions.

    There were way more questions than this but I couldn’t remember them all.

    Dress smart casual e.g smart trousers with plain top or black dress with smart jacket.
