Bus Dev Manager Interview

Bus Dev Manager
London, England (UK)

The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at William Grant & Sons in July 2011.

Interview Details – Interviews are stringently controlled by HR and take the form of a run through CV (as normal) with valid questions such as why you moved company etc. Then the difficult part is the competency based interview part which takes the form of 8 questions (4 competencies per role so 2 questions per competency). Practice these answers and know examples very well. There is lots of probing here. Interview finishes up with a couple of questions on values to ensure your values match the company's values.
It was very difficult to establish a rapport/ relationship in such a regimented/ HR controlled interview process.

Interview Question – Give an example of where you went the extra mile for your company in your role?   Answer Question
