Advice to Management
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at First Central (London, England (UK)).
I applied directly through the website and was invited to a telephone interview via email by their recruitment team. This was an informal chat about my cv history to see if I had the skill set for the role. I was invited to a second video interview by email. This was competency based and bother managers were friendly and interview went well. They advised HR would let me know in a weeks time. This is where it went down hill. I never received a response for nearly two weeks so emailed for an update which I didn't get a response too. I followed up with a second email to the generic recruitment email address. I was then told I wasn't successful but got good feedback from the hiring managers. Having to chase their own recruitment for an update left a bitter taste for the company. I felt that's bad practice having candidates have to chase for an update after taking part in two interviews. I hope this was a one off and the recruiter gives candidate's feedback once available.
Today is #FootballShirtFriday. So to help raise money for the Bobby Moore Fund for Cancer Research UK and our own local charities, the EBA and RMCH, we wore our football shirts with pride.
The first day of our Wellbeing Week was a great success with lots of people getting involved. We ran an engaging ‘managing stress’ workshop to try and give our people some great tools to come out on top in stressful situations, as well as a lunchtime walk and run to help get people out enjoying the sunshine that seemed to have been in hiding for the last six months! Walking and running isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, that’s why we ran dance, kickboxing and personal trainer sessions for those who liked to mix it up, and to top off a great first day, our team over in Gibraltar competed in a mini office Olympics on the terrace. We’re looking forward to seeing what the rest of the week will bring! #WellbeingWeek2018
