    I worked at Skipton Building Society full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good company to work for, has decent internal prospects and happy to help you train or make internal movements to help you get the role you desire if you are willing to put in the time yourself. Pay is OK not as high as some similar companies but for being out of a city its reasonable. Good benefits and holidays package along with this.

    Cons

    Management direction can sometimes feel rushed or forced which causes issues further down the line

    Advice to Management

    Take more time with decisions, delivering at pace is one thing but rushing things through doesnt always help

    Interview

    Telephone interview, followed by a role play and face to face interview. Telephone interview covered CV, work experience and knowledge of the company. Roleplay was relevant to the job and face to face interview was strength-based rather than competency-based.
