    Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Royal Free NHS (London, England (UK)) in May 2009.

    Interview

    I have applied online through NHS website and 2 weeks after I was offered interview.
    It wasn't very difficult. They asked about qualification, past employers, relevant experience and asked some question of type what would you do if .....how would you behave if ... and so on. The also asked me to give 5 points of good team working.
    It is good if your answers for the questions cosserspond to your own experience. So if they ask you how would you deal with challenging behaviour try to look up in the memory whether you had to deal with one and just tell them about it.

    Energy Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Royal Free NHS (London, England (UK)) in June 2016.

    Interview

    NHS Trust on-line application process. There were two interviews, each involved a panel of two persons. HR was not present. The questions asked covered areas in energy procurement, energy management, legislative compliance as well as my understanding of CHP technology. I was offered the job the day after the second interview but only a 12-month fixed term temporary contract even though the job was advertised as a permanent position. I accepted the offer but the employer withdrew the offer made 3 weeks later and re-advertised the post. Needless-to-say I was not only disappointed but angry with this unexpected turn of events. I subsequently discovered the post was eventually filled by an internal candidate who had been working in the role on a temporary contract basis. Therefore the whole recruitment process was a sham, unfair on applicants and I believe morally dubious.

    Based on my unhappy experience I can not recommend working for Royal Free as they were dishonest and disrespectful in their treatment of me.

    This was thorough but comfortable. The panel were welcoming. They offered me the role the very same day which was very pleasing. During my time here they would quickly give people a response. When you’re looking for a job speed of response is so very useful.
