Leicester
Royal Holloway
UCL
Southampton
Can't quite believe it!!! Feeling very grateful and fortunate. Wishing everyone loads of luck and warm vibes - I had been through tough recruitment processes for my previous career, but nothing had quite prepared for me for how difficult this process would be to cope with and get through. It's a doozy - be kind to yourselves!!

wanted to say, what a spectacular outcome Georgia9823!!! Very happy for you, clearly having abundance of experience, in other area, but likely very relevant paid off.
