Lovely modern and bright offices in a good area, many very friendly and helpful people and a great deal of opportunity to work in a variety of up-and-coming sectors. Generous salary and benefits.

  1. Company Secretarial Assistant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview
    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Octopus (London, England, England) in Feb 2021

    Interview

    Applied in January. Had a screening call a few weeks after and 2 more interviews on zoom. I was told I would be contacted a few days after with feedback. Was gaslighted.

    Even after sending them a follow up email, I never heard back. I understand people are busy and I didn't progress to the next stage but I was disappointed with the lack of feedback.

    I don't normally leave reviews but I am hoping they will take this on board and do better. It is a 2 way process after all.
    Interview

    Mixture of technical and competency based questions that were fairly straightforward
