    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at NHS Blood and Transplant (Birmingham, England (UK)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Absolutely appalling interview for a senior post. Started with being sat in a room for 30 minutes to come up with a presentation (no prior notification of subject). Ok, I thought, trying the 'under pressure' angle. During the rest of the interview it was clear that they had not actually reviewed my CV or experience, and the role that they were actually interviewing for was very different to that advertised. So much so, that my experience wasn't relevant. Wasted a day's leave and expense of travel to attend a shambles.
