    Band D - Team Leader Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Cardiff, Wales
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Companies House (Cardiff, Wales) in December 2019.

    Interview

    Extremely organised and professional. It was made up of a presentation exercise, competencies and strength based questions, so plenty of variety to cater to different peoples abilities and strengths. The interviewers were great and the team who were responsible for processing my documents were really friendly too. I was put onto the reserve list and really didn't think I'd hear from the company again but 6 months later was contacted (mid covid pandemic!) and offered the position as the person who got it previously had already been promoted! The process following on from that was great too - recruitment and HR were, again, very organised, I was continuously kept up to date and given all the information you could possibly want before starting a new job (and more!) I really cannot find any fault with any part of the process or company - people are so right when they say that this really is an amazing place to work.
