I have been working at Close Brothers full-time (More than 5 years)
Strong leadership team, lots of consultation with employees at all levels. (Employee engagement survey taken v. seriously)
Nice size, easy to add value and a flat management structure
Good work life balance and flexible working options
Well supported to develop professionally and personally
Internal communications could be better
I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Close Brothers (London, England) in April 2016.
I was contacted on LinkedIn by their HR. Had a phone conversation about reasons for leaving, current salary etc. Sent them my CV and a phone interview was arranged with the software team lead. In their email it was mentioned that the interview's aim is to find out more about yourself, your skills set, the value you can add to the team, and why you want to work for Close Brothers. The interview however was more about the skills I had listed on my CV. Make sure you have textbook knowledge of all of them!
The interviewer was extremely nice and gave me some valuable feedback in the end.
