    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Cancer Research UK.

    Interview

    Applied for the same job twice but hours of work varied on both, the first one was for 15 hours which I didn't get but the second one was for 23.5 hours

    Applied online , got an email asking I've been invited for an interview went a couple days after. If you past the interview you will do a day in the job which is basically letting your manager know if your right for the job or not

    The first time I didn't get the job but was put into a talent pool so basically if any jobs came up I would be put forward for an interview again .. so did that again and the day in the store and within a week I got the job
