    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Robert Walters (Manchester City Centre, England (UK)) in October 2015.

    Interview

    A conversation with an Associate Director, then another with a Manager, then again with an MD.
    Not competency based, more about your CV and what you're looking for
    These stages were across 2 days and it felt more like they were selling the role to me than that I was selling myself

    Transparent and straightforward interview process. I had two interviews; the first with the members of my would-be team, and the second with a director.
