    Recruitment Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Search Consultancy.

    Interview

    I was contacted for this role and invited in to interview with the manager of the division and the regional manager. It was a relaxed but tough interview that really brought the most out of you in terms of your answers.

    The first stage:

    The first stage really was just a chat through the CV, why search etc so it's always really good to research the company in detail and mention things that other people won't. Then it was a break down of my career history and what motivates me etc - this was around 2 hours long so it really did start to feel more like a chat than a full on interview.

    In between the first and second stage you have to do a psychometric and aptitude test online.

    The second stage:

    The second stage was to prepare a presentation on how you will make your desk profitable in 6 months, then a role play followed by competency based questions.

    Negotiation

    Search offered promptly ( same day as second interview ) and met my salary requirements so there was no negotiating. Just go into the interview confident of what you're worth.
