Final interview

Lasting 20 – 25 minutes with recruitment and will cover salary, benefits, relocation and visa’s (if applicable).

    Dress Code & Location

    The accepted dress code at NT is wear what you are comfortable in, which we invite you to follow. We don’t have a formal dress code so we don’t expect you to dress formally for interview.

    At present, all interviews are held via video call on Microsoft Teams.
