    I have been working at 1st Central Insurance full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Leadership
    Opportunities
    Development
    Flexible
    Progressive
    Good people
    Believe and are true to company values
    Good HR
    Benefits
    Not just a number, but seen as a valuable member of the organisation.
    Given the ability to drive changes to the business operations.

    Cons

    Still some manual processes and reporting which could be automated with off the shelf products, just need time to implement to make people work smarter not harder.

    Advice to Management

    Have really enjoyed my time working for FCIM, Andy James & Kevin Howard have made it a pleasure to work for the company. I have always felt valued by them and they have always supported the efforts of their teams.

    Don't loose that personal touch with your employees.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at 1st Central Insurance.

    Interview

    Online test, telephone and then onsite interview at Haywards Heath. A mix of strength, competency, technical and free form questions.

    The questions are not too challenging, but require some thought and detailing.

    Overall the atmosphere is friendly and the interviewers will be interested in your strength, so don't be afraid to do your best!
