    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Royal London full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Some flexibility with working hours
    Good on-site facilities

    Cons

    No formal training program
    Relocation not advised at interview
    Insufficient engagement with new staff
    Call centre environment
    Ask at interview what role you are interested in and then assign you something entirely different
    Shabby environment
    Too many different computer systems
    Insufficient desks for staff

    Advice to Management

    Need to establish proper progressive training plan for staff working with financial products rather than just sitting them with people who are experienced. They do not always have the right approach to people who are learning in a new environment
    Invest in premises and systems

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Royal London.

    Firstly a few computer based tests before hand, like excel, numeracy etc. Assessment day with a group exercise, individual interview and individual written assignment - very positive experience from the company. Heard the results back in a few days

    Interview Questions

    • General questions based on the values and also a few more logic based ones e.g how many people do you think passed their test last year in the UK?   Answer Question
