I was thinking well we’ve done the virtual so a piece of paper can’t really mean that much. Good to hear that didn’t ask!

I think they aren't too focused on the past, they are more interested as you as a person and your strengths and weaknesses etc

Agreed CV And cover letters are the worst!

On a different note if anyone is worried about the referencing, I called the HRMC and got all exact dates so hopefully is I get through to vetting that will speed things up
