    Phone interview initially conducted by a memeber of the aquisition team, then if you pass that on to a face to face. Phone interview was fairly informal and friendly, the interviewer was to the point and did not sugar coat the job

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at St. James's Place plc in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    As part of the recruitment process I was asked to record the answers to several questions via webcam and send them to St James' Place for review. Unfortunately my webcam was not working but the recruitment team were very helpful and held a telephone interview with me instead. The experience was very good and the interviewer was friendly which is always a help when interviewing for a job you are very interested in and therefore quite nervous about losing the opportunity. In the end I got to the final 20 candidates out of several hundred but just missed the cut for the final assessment.
