    Banking Supervision Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Bank of England in December 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process consisted of two rounds.
    The first round was in November and it consisted of a case study(around 60min) and after that a discussion with the two managers on your findings. That round was tough but quite enjoyable.
    After two weeks I got a call from my recruiter that they wanted me for a final round interview(a competency-based one). My interview was scheduled for mid-December on a Friday in the afternoon(very weird).
    Now I have done quite a few interviews and I had really prepared for this one with the PRA by reading a lot of regulation, articles etc.
    However, during my interviewers weren’t that interested in my answers or never followed up with any additional questions. They were constantly checking their watches as if they had somewhere else to be, which I found extremely disrespectful(given that there was a watch right behind me).
    Overall the last interview was really unpleasant as the people had zero interest in understanding more about my profile and listening to my answers.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Bank of England (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    HR forgot I was coming in and left me waiting for 45 minutes before sending someone down to reschedule. What stuck with me was that I was asked if I still wanted to come back in. Made me think they had already earmarked candidates and I was just a formality.

    Part Time Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Bank of England (London, England (UK)) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Very well organised - application form followed by difficult numeracy test, then telephone interview. I didn't get through to final (face to face) interview. The HR team were very good at adhering to the turn around times. You knew at each stage exactly how long you had to wait for an answer and they kept to their promise. Check you junk mail though - the numeracy test got filtered to my junk and it was lucky I spotted it as you have to complete it within 48 hours!

    The interview process is quite straightforward and corresponds to what they tell you prior to the interviews. I interviewed with a few associates, then senior management.

    Face to face interview
    Tow senior people interviewed me and they asked me a lot of mathematical & coding questions, finance and risk related questions and some competency questions. It took one hour in total. Nice interview experience and they were very nice. It would be better if you get well prepared.
