    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cancer Research UK (Reading, England (UK)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Applied for the job online and was emailed about an invitation to an interview, two days after applying. The email was very clear on where the interview was, who would be interviewing me, how long the interview would take and what I needed to bring with me. The two interviewers were very friendly and made me feel very relaxed. It was a casual yet formal interview.
    I was told I would be contacted, whether successful or unsuccessful, within the next week or two but to contact them if I don't hear from them within this time.
