    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at The Open University.

    Interview

    Single face-to-face interview, consisting of two panel interviewers . There was no HR interview as it was for a contract position. The role description provided by the recruiter wasn't accurate, so my interview preparation work was not relevant or helpful in the interview itself.
