Approves of CEO

I worked at Finlay James full-time for less than a year


Logical, forward-thinking management Highly professional conduct, no shark tank stuff here Very strong training and further development Best place by far to learn the ropes, or take it to the


None - but remember it is a targeted job with numbers to hit.

Advice to Management

Keep it up, for sure - the family feel of the company takes such vision and effort to get embedded in, so make sure you don't lose it.

    Trainee Recruitment COnsultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Manchester, England, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Finlay James (Manchester, England, England) in Oct 2019


    The hr manager found my cv online

    Presentation to MD & manager

    (Wanted to write here as I found James May (the md’s) behaviour horrific during the interview process. I was a fresh graduate and he was relentlessly slagging off the graduates they had hired for the London office for having no sales experience, being lazy etc. For the reason the London office didn’t work. He also slagged off another recruitment company that I was interviewing with too which I found very unprofessional). Make you do a 3 stage interview process to say at the end ‘really like you but no sales experience, go to a call centre and come back to us in three months’ just gives you an indication to what sort of recruitment business this is. It’s not all about cold calling 👀

    Why recruitment? Why you? Why Finlay James?
