I applied online. I interviewed at Skipton Building Society (Bolton, England) in April 2018.
The interview process was a series of online tests, then a telephone interview, then another online personality test and then an interview in branch lasting about an hour. The tests consisted of Maths and English questions and were timed. I was then asked a series of personality questions in a telephone interview lasting about half and hour. If you pass this you are then sent a link to perform another online personality quiz before an interview with the branch manager.
This week our leaders have been exploring Unconscious Bias. But what’s it all about? Your background, personal experiences, societal stereotypes and cultural context can have an impact on your decisions and actions without you realising. Implicit or unconscious bias happens by our brains making incredibly quick judgments and assessments of people and situations without us realising.
Through forum theatre and open conversations we created a learning experience to highlight the issues and themes around Unconscious Bias and what we can do to ensure we continue to strive for a positive and inclusive culture. We’re continuing to build on this throughout 2018.
We take looking after our customers so seriously even our Chief Exec David is on the phones speaking to customers today to help ease the load!
