Interview Details – After submitting my CV to RMS I was contacted a few weeks later by Toni in HR for a phone interview. During this interview I was asked questions about my CV, any other experience and some general skills questions.
The next day I was told I had a face-to-face interview at the RMS offices in central London. This consisted of a 20 minute quantitative reasoning question which was answered on a white board with no calculator allowed. Directly following was a 30 minute talk with my potential manager which involved a more thorough look at my CV and experience. This was more of a conversation than an interrogation.
I was then called back for the last stage of the interview process the next week. This involved a 20 minute presentation to be given to 6 members of the team I was applying for and a 20 minute Q&A. After this, the department managing director and another member of the team then gave me another Case Study to which there was no correct end answer. This took around another 40 minutes.
Overall this was a tough process but having accepted a position here I can see the value of it. I use all the skills they tested on a day to day basis. The process also let me know exactly what kind of organisation and team I was applying for and if I was the right fit for them.
The HR team were very clear in describing the process and the next steps involved which was very useful so that the process did not seem too drawn out.

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Risk Management Solutions in January 2013.
Interview Details – The interview process consisted of one telephone and two face to face interviews with members of the prospective team including senior management. The interviews were challenging but enjoyable and always performed in a relaxed manner. Both face to face interviews included case studies, to be done on a white board, and I had to give a presentation during the last interview. Meeting the majority of the team and senior management was very useful as it allowed me to satisfy myself that everyone was good natured and had a good work life balance.
Throughout the process HR were very good and kept me up to date which meant that the process was not a long and drawn out one.
