    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Shoosmiths (Manchester, England (UK)) in January 2011.

    Interview

    3 stage interview process with boss and team member then senior management and boss and finally a final interview with management.

    It was more commercial questions and they did not try to catch you out if you did not know thwant answer to a question.
