    I worked at Kingston Smith part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    KS offered me an excellent flexible working arrangement together with a supportive management structure and the ability to progress at the pace I wanted.

    They have numerous social events which you can attend but equally you are not pressured if this isn't your type of thing.

    The Partners are approachable, friendly and everyone is treated equally. There is a real focus at KS on ensuring no gender pay gap which results in a balance of management positions held.

    I have worked regularly from 3 of the offices and they have all been refurbished to a good standard and make nice working environments. Little touches like fresh fruit deliveries every week make a real difference.

    Working from home is not a problem and you are provided with the necessary IT

    I have particularly found that your personal efforts are noticed and rewarded. If you go that extra mile you will do well here.

    Cons

    Holiday entitlement is standard terms

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week. I interviewed at Kingston Smith (London, England) in November 2014.

    Interview

    The process leading up to the interview was quick! I applied for the role via a new agent on Thursday night, Friday afternoon I was invited in for the first round interview, the following Tuesday I had a second interview, I was offered the role on the following Friday.
    The interview itself was informal, well structured, informative.
