    Interview process

    The initial process was a phone interview with an Internal recruitment consultant who asjed generic questions such as why recruitment and what are my goals etc. Then I was invited to the office to meet the team manager but actually met 5 people in the process, it took a total of 3 hours, from trainee consultants to director of the company.
    I was asked a few questions about the company and why would I lie to be a part of the team. I was also asked why recruitment with additional questions on what a recruitment consultant does. When I finally met the team manager he got me to speak in front of the new trainees to see if I could hold a conversation. He then asked me to sell him something and we did a role play. Finally the director of the company asked me more technical questions such as entrepreneurial questions and also selling technique.

    Most difficult question

    You are locked in a room with a phone and a cv, the phone can only call numbers, on the cv you have the person's information and they're phone number. To get out the room you have to place that person into a job. You have no jobs to place them into, so you have to find one and then place them. How would you do it?

    Interview tips

    Ensure that you do enough research on the company and be prepared to do role plays. Thru talk a lot so you have to be able to hold a conversation with everyone that you meet because it could be from 2 people to 5 people.
    I would also recommend you read a lot of different selling techniques because I was asked to sell 2 items to them by two different people. Try not be be nervous because they will use that against you. Eye contact and speaking clearly is also very essential, make sure that you are engaged with everyone you meet and approach them professionally. Every you meet asks you the sane questions so be prepared to repeat a lot and not sound frustrated.
