I may be hiring a couple software engineers in the UK this year. What should I expect to be different from the US?

How are British resumes different from American? Are the steps similar (eg phone screen then two rounds of in-person interviews)? Are there cultural things about the content, length, etc of interviews that are substantially different? Should one expect British interviewees to be interviewing the employer to the same degree you'd expect in America? At what point is salary discussed, and how much negotiation is expected? Are references handled similarly?
