    Pros

    As an intern it was great to experience the workplace in this environment. I was able to meet many clients working for a Partner of the firm.

    Cons

    Must be self motivated to do well. There are not many opportunities to move up if you are working for a Partner unless they sponser you for the exams.

    Advice to Management

    Since each partner more or less owns their own clients and firm it was a great learning experience working with a financial adviser who works for themselves. You need to do well to stay but if you succeed it appears the company is a good place to work.

    Video interview which you complete in your own time - 1 minute to prepare and 1 minute to answer
    Very unnerving having to look at yourself while talking
    Assessment centre if successful in Cirencester (final 24)
    From final 24, they offered 6 places.
