    Interview process

    Very relaxed - by two ladies - very friendly.

    Competency based Questions:

    example of team work
    example of when something went wrong. How did you go around changing it? What did you learn?
    What kind of leader are you in a team?
    How would three friends describe you?

    Why Cancer Research?
    What interested you about this role?
    What if anything seemed off putting with the role?

    Most difficult question

    The questions, if you prepare competency based questions don't really put you on the spot.

    If anything, I wasn't prepared for the how would three friends describe you, but I made it up on the spot fine.

    Interview tips

    Prepare competency based questions and you will be fine.

    Read up on projects Cancer Research are working on. Read up on their new brand they have created and the meaning behind it.

    Understand Cancer Researches values and beliefs - and link them into your answers during the interview.

    Get experience within the charity sector before hand - get a good understanding of the company before interview.

    Experiences at the assessment centre

    Angel office in London is lovely - so the experience of going there was fun in itself!

    I enjoyed chatting with the ladies.
