    Interview process

    My interview felt more like a conversation, rather than an interview. I didn't feel too much pressure, I felt like the interviewer really opened me up in terms of going over my CV and asking me about things I've done more in detail. She was conversing with me as opposed to asking blunt questions.

    Interview tips

    Always research the company's background, check the skills they are looking for in an individual. Thus allowing you to mention those skills in an interview and giving them what they are looking for. It would be great to back up your skills, by using examples in the past or how you developed this skill. Also, when they ask you why they should hire you try not to sound 'overconfident' as it isn't an attractive trait.

    Experiences at the assessment centre

    The assessment centre will consist of a numerical test, if this is passed with an 80% then you will be progressed to one final interview. The numerical test is after being selected and passing a phone interview.
