Senior Recruitment Advisor Interview

Senior Recruitment Advisor

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Downer Group.

Interview Details – I was initially contacted for a phone screen which took approximately 40 minutes. This was followed up with a 1 on 1 interview with the Recruitment Manager, which took an hour. The next step in the recruitment process was involvement in a panel interview, consisting of the Recriutment manager, another Senior Recriutment Advisor and a Recruitment advisor. I also underwent OPQ personality profiling as well as literacy and numeracy testing.

Interview Question – Describe what your first 6 months would entail, who would be involved, what support would be required, what targets would you set yourself and how would you achieve them. What issues do you think you will face and how would you over come them   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – 110,000 + superannuation. I asked for this amount.
