    I worked at NESTA part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good, friendly environment to work in. Many interesting, inspiring and unique challenges to work on.

    Cons

    Not the best for someone who wants to deliver products or services to people. With a think-tank environment this is not a strong focus. Projects tend to come and go.

    Advice to Management

    Consider carefully what the long(er) term implications are of committing to projects and what the maintenance plan might be when starting out.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at NESTA (London, England (UK)) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Normal application (CV, letter), one Skype interview, one in person. For the second interview I was offered to skype as well, if necessary.
    After the first interview, I was asked to complete a written exercise, which I got a brief and several days (over the weekend) for.
    Quick, friendly, kept me updated on progress, even apologised when feedback to a little longer then expected

    Interview Questions

    • Quite a bit about my previous role, some scenario questions ("What would you do to achieve x if we had already tried y and failed?")   Answer Question
