    I have been working at James Andrews Recruitment Solutions full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There have been ups and downs during my first year at James Andrews, however on the whole I have thoroughly enjoyed my time learning a new trade. I remember having the help and guidance I needed when I first started at the organisation, and now I often find myself helping newer colleagues develop as consultants. One of my favourite things over the past year has been the company events. I have been lucky enough to make great friendships to enjoy the four separate events scattered across the country. I’m looking forward to the next full year, progressing my career and learning more new skills.

    Cons

    The role involves long hours, sometimes up to 50 hours a week. The company do not hide behind this and make you fully aware of it before starting the contract. At first it is tiring, especially straight out of University, however it doesn’t take long to adjust and the extra hours mean you can progress quicker as a new member of the team. As part of the work life balance, the company are also trialling earlier finishes in the New Year which is both exciting and challenging moving forward.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at James Andrews Recruitment Solutions (Leicester, England) in April 2019.

    Interview

    The interview process with James Andrews was very professional and quick. I was made to feel at ease throughout my interviews which gave me a positive view of the company. I was approached by James Andrews to send my CV over and invited for an interview. The interview stage ran very smoothly, I had my first initial chat on the Wednesday followed by an interview with one of the directors on the Thursday. This interview lasted around a hour, we went through my CV and I was asked numerous questions regarding the role. The company and the role was explained to me along with information on progression. I was then invited back for an interview the next day, this interview was with a Managing Consultant. I was asked more in depth questions and again the role and responsibilities was explained to me in more detail. I was then offered the position after the interview which of course I accepted! I am looking forward to progressing in James Andrews.
