    Financial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Edinburgh, Scotland
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Royal London (Edinburgh, Scotland) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Interview was brief and focused around the role specific skills and organisational fit. Some questions were competency based, like 'Describe the time where you had to manage stakeholder expectations', other questions were more focused around technical skills and past experiences. Overall, the atmosphere was relaxed and friendly - made me feel at ease.

    Performance and Capacity Lead Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Edinburgh, Scotland
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Royal London (Edinburgh, Scotland) in May 2009.

    Interview

    The whole interview process took over a months time . The first round was core technical and was taken by an external consutant who are Subject Matter Experts in this field. The interviewer had good questions and was based on basic concepts rather than knowledge of tools. Second round was the Behavioral Competency round and after attending so many interviews and getting stuck in this round I have failed to understand what the interviewers are looking for in these questions.
