I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Financial Services Authority in December 2009.
Interview Details – Initial interview was a role playing interview with actors which was filmed throughout - quite initimidating and a very unusual experience. Also an online numeracy test which focused on accountancy skills predominantly. The organisation of these interviews was escellent and the people I dealt with were very friendly and professional. A final interview with a senior manager which was quite relaxed and at the FSA headquarters - all very professional and friendly once again. Three months down the line I am still being told that I am being considered for a role which is incredibly frustrating.
Interview Question – The numeracy test - multiple choice, but if you got the answer wrong a point was deducted and it was timed - so quite pressurised. Answer Question
