    I have been working at Ingeus

    Pros

    Worked here for over 3yrs, but been in welfare to work roles for almost 10 and never have a known a company like Ingeus that makes such a difference to clients life and shows them so much respect, I have heard from a few advisors that they believe the company has nmore respect for client than it does employees, i dont believe that to be true but even if it was SO what! The role is all about the clients and knowing that you have supporting a client that has been 10, 15 or even 33yrs unemployed (which was a client of mine) and feels their barriers or health condition prohibits them to a normal working life and you help them believe in themself again! Well thats a job i know many people who volunteer to do never mind getting paid £25k + for. The targets are high but manageable, I have been on PSP twice previous (warnings for not hitting target) but was supported completed by my manager and HR to ensure I got back on track and since I have had 2 pay rises for been Gold advisor. If you can put in the work and effort then you are rewarded well, and all clients wouldn't deserve anything less than you putting in your best, It is human beings we are helping every day! - On another note I do not and cant imagine any Ingeus office expecting people to work 60hr week, we work 32.5 and if we feel that we cant manage it within that time then we are giving training in diary management etc and in my office we are even allowed to work overtime to assure we keep the work-life balance.

    Cons

    to many meetings about meetings. I like it best when I am just working with my clients rather than looking at reports weekly.

    Learning and Development Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Ingeus in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I should have trusted my instincts and not wasted my time in going for interview. I was initially invited to interview and turned up at the Head Office but after waiting for 20 minutes was advised that neither of the panel members were there (one due to sickness, no reason was given for the absence of the Area Director). After a phone interview I was persuaded to arrange a second date for an interview (this time with a member of HR rather than the Area Director) . The interview felt extremely 'artifical' rather than a genuine discussion and it was impossible to get a good feel for the role.

    Very predictable competency based questions 'can you give me an example of....' with some rather odd (and basic) hypothetical scenarios which I haven't experienced at interview in recent years. I was surprised at the 2 dimensional nature of the interview for a senior role and the number of hypothetical questions asked, which are not a good indicator of potential job performance.

    I was never advised of the outcome of the interview which is particularly poor practice in any role, let alone when interviewing HR professionals.
