    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Cancer Research UK (Islington, England (UK)) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Online application followed by an email invitation to an interview at Angel Building in Islington. I was interviewed by three people and it lasted approximately 40 minutes. They asked me competency based questions and I was informed 2 weeks afterwards.
