    Interview process

    My initial telephone interview was about me re-locating to Inverness from Balloch which lasted about 10 minutes. The telephone interview was to assess my willingness to re-locate 180 miles away and what I knew about Inverness. The second interview was with the operations director and the assistant operations director which was more an informal conversation about aspects on my CV and and generic interview questions such as why I wanted the job and what i could bring to the role.
