    Senior Communications Executive Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Ellwood Atfield (London, England) in March 2018.

    Interview

    I applied for the position through GuardianJobs and received a callback the next day. After this I was sent a fuller job-spec and met with Ellwood Atfield staff a few days later.

    Their office is nice and well-located, with a gallery/waiting area downstairs, so clearly a reputable company. I was treated much more professionally than with other recruiters I had met, with helpful advice offered right up until my interview when I called the consultant on directly on their mobile.

    A few weeks into the job I am really happy with my placement. Couldn't recommend them highly enough.

    Multimedia Copywriter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Ellwood Atfield (London, England) in June 2017.

    Interview

    A consultant from Ellwood Atfield called me regarding a Multimedia Copywiter role for a financial organisation in Canary Wharf and arranged a face-to-face interview the day after. A few of her comments were very unprofessional throughtout the process. I was honest to her and told her I was having other interviews so we agreed that if I had a job offer I'd tell her to back out of the selection process with Ellwood Atfield. She emailed me week after week to ask if I was still interested in the process, which took ages. Once I emailed her weeks later to let her know that I was on holidays when the second round of interviews with the financial firm was planned, she started ignoring my emails. The issue is that I was always honest with her about my holidays with her and the dates of interviews she gave me in first place were wrong. Unprofessional, time-wasters and untrustworthy.
