Unless stated otherwise, I think they expect you to attend for a personal interview at 2pm on 8th May...
edit: congrats by the way - first shortlist
So wait, this is a personal interview? Are they going to be paying my way or do I have to do so myself?
Typically, how many people make the cut for jobs on the initial shortlist?
I should call on Monday, shouldn't I?
