I have been working at Close Brothers (Less than a year)
Would definitely recommend Close Brothers as a place to work.
Despite being a great place to work, Close has a very bureaucratic culture.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Close Brothers (Wimbledon, England).
Very easy interviews (too easy actually), but very, very drawn out and a long process - mainly because the recruiting managers, by their own admission, didn't get their act together and book in interview dates. Had to complete a number of psychometric tests as well.
The fact the interviews were so easy did alarm me and I wish I'd listened to those gut-instinct warnings - basically I was going to work for people who had no idea about the area of work they were managing.
Let us know if we're missing any workplace or industry recognition –
