Long hours but that's what you get with recruitment
I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Oliver James Associates (London, England) in February 2017.
I interviewed for a job in the Oliver James Associates London office. I was not actively looking for a new position and was actually happy in my previous role, however one of the internal recruiters at OJA approached me and I agreed to having an informal coffee with her. During this meeting I learnt more about the position, culture and commission structure and by the end of the meeting I was interested in exploring the opportunity further. They also had me complete a personality test before proceeding with the interview
The interview process was three steps which included a meeting with the Director for the UK, the Director of the London office and also the team manager. They were quite flexible and let me have the meetings in the evenings after work and one during a lunch break (I worked very close to their offices) so that I didn't have to take any time off work.
The interview process wasn't easy and in particular the Head of the London office did throw a few difficult questions at me that really had me thinking. It was clear that OJA like to get to know individuals before they hire them. They also wanted to know a bit more about my approach to recruitment in order to establish which desk I would fit best on and thrive.
