If I am successful in gaining an interview, how will this occur during the current COVID-19 pandemic?
Due to the current situation we plan to interview remotely using a video call. We would ensure that candidates who were successful in gaining an interview were supported with the technology so that this process is seamless. We will provide you with details of the process with your interview invite.

Our advice would be that those who were successful in gaining an interview should prepare as they would for a face to face and dress smart casual. We will allow plenty of time to ensure that you are able to answer our questions in full and you will not be judged if you are having problems with your technology.

We will leave plenty of opportunity for questions at the end of the interview, and we will spend lots of time talking and unpicking your answers. Please come prepared to share anything you’d like that we didn’t cover, or any questions you have about it. We really appreciate your adaptability in these unprecedented times.
