    I worked at Coutts & Co part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Staff really care about clients
    A brand that has historically had a wow factor
    Still some true Coutts areas where passion and values shine but these are diminishing
    Great client base
    Good digital offering

    Cons

    All smoke & mirrors - RBS through & through with Coutts colours on the outside and charging Coutts fees
    Lots of self promotors and this behaviour is actively encouraged

    Advice to Management

    Make an effort to retain your long serving staff and reward them for their loyalty so they continue to lead the way in terms of brand values and client service, rather than let them leave and then try to teach new staff from scratch via a manual

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Coutts & Co (London, England).

    Interview

    I had to fill out an application form, then has a few numerical and non verbal tests. Passing these you then get a strength based telephone interview followed by an assessment centre. I was told that only my score in the assessment centre would affect getting a place since I've already passed the other steps to get to the assessment centre so they don't count anymore.
