    Intranet Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Coutts & Co in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a recruiter about an Intranet Manager role, and it sounded like a good fit. I attended an initial interview with the hiring manager, and I felt it didn't go well. She was standoffish and almost mocking when asking me about my previous work experience.

    I was surprised when I was invited for a second interview, but thought maybe the hiring managers cold manner was just her style.

    The second interview was held in a Starbucks coffee shop near the Coutts offices, but rather than being with anyone with authority, it was with a man who said he had been hired as a freelance consultant by Coutts and didn't elaborate any further. He didn't ask about anything specific, which I thought odd, and when asked specifically "what is the purpose of this interview?" he replied "it's just a chat".

    Within minutes of leaving the interview, I received a call from the recruiter to say I was unsuccessful in the role, without any further explanation. I expressed my concern about the interview to the recruiter, and she said no one she submitted for the role was hired.

    A strange experience, but enough to put me off ever being involved with Coutts and Co again.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Coutts & Co in July 2008.

    Interview Details

    Was invited to assessment centre. It took place in a centre near Liverpool Street, and is not an Coutts owned building (ie was rented for this event).

    This consisted of a 2:1 interview with two Coutts Private Bankers, an interview with an HR Partner, and a "client meeting" role play with a Business Partner.

    The Coutts staff were very friendly, and it was obvious they were trying get to know you rather than try catch you out.
