    Associate Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bristol, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at University of the West of England (Bristol, England (UK)) in March 2018.

    Interview

    Had to prepare several pre-interview tasks including preparing a digital artefact and 1-page synthesis.

    Actual interview was a 20-minute facilitation mock exercise with 16 people, who all very friendly and made it easy to present. Interview panel was 4 senior managers and they asked the usual ‘why work here’ types of questions. Although I did not get the job, one of the managers called me that afternoon to give feedback and it was probably one of the best feedback conversations I have ever had anywhere. HR also was very efficient with expenses reimbursement. Very organised.

    Interview Questions

    • Why do you want this job. Why do you want to work here. How to you communicate in a matrix scenario.   Answer Question
