    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at IG (London, England (UK)) in August 2017.

    Interview

    My interview was arranged via a recruitment agency. I was invited for an in-house interview at their offices at Cannon Street. It was a two hour interview. The first hour was a written test then after that two people came in to interview me. I liked it and had a good time chatting to the developer. The manager left the interview a bit earlier but I spent the rest of the time talking to the developer. They were both nice. I liked the interview process/style. Anyway I got invited back for the final round but when I tried to confirm a date I couldn't because they were in holiday. I followed up a couple of times but got no response!

    Such a shame because I'd have liked to have worked there.
