    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Certus Recruitment Group (London, England (UK)) in August 2017.

    Interview

    It was a pretty typical assessment day. Prior to that, I've got contacted by one of their recruiters for a chat and she invited me to come to the assessment centre few days after. The recruiter was absolutely lovely and made me feel a bit more at ease at attending the assessment day. On the day, there were around 30 of us (before going into the room, they took pictures of us, which I though was a bit strange, but then again - this was my first assessment day!) and we started off with a brief introduction and in 'interesting fact' about yourself. as well as a 30 second 'elevator pitch'. Then got divided into two groups for an exercise and afterwards those who were successful, got initial interviews with various companies who were observing us throughout the day. Few days after I got an offer at one of the companies that were not there and been working there ever since.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Certus Recruitment Group (London, England (UK)) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Got a call back shortly after applying and was invited to a group assessment day, then was accepted to further interview for 2 companies for different roles. I ended up accepting a job offer from one of those 2 companies. Throughout the process, Certus was great about keeping me in the loop about things, gave me good advice, and I felt like they genuinely wanted me to succeed.

    The group assessment started with an introduction, a little pitch about why you'd wanna do a sales job, then everyone was split into groups to complete tasks relating to a sales scenario. After the tasks, successful people were invited to further interviews.

    Trainee Recruitment COnsultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Certus Recruitment Group (London, England (UK)) in October 2017.

    Interview

    If you are a graduate, I wouldn't recommend going to the assessment days at Certus Recruitment. They lie, and tell you it will be full of graduates, but they include second jobbers or people with 1-2 years experience in recruitment. Therefore, as a graduate, you are already at a disadvantage, even if you have sales experience. I attended multiple interviews with reputable recruitment companies, and feedback was great from all of them. In total to summarise certus recruitment for graduates, don't waste your time. Unless you have good experience, you will waste 3-4 hours of your time. This happened to me and about 12 other graduates, as there was 23-25 people in the assessment day and probably only 2 graduates got through to the final stage, while the rest were second jobbers/people with good experience in sales/recruitment.

    Graduate Recruitment Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Certus Recruitment Group in August 2017.

    Interview

    Dishonest group. Don't apply unless you have sales experience and a bubbly personality.

    Best advice if you do give Certus a chance to go to the assessment day just be confident and energetic. Ensure your elevators pitch is definetly 30 secs and talks about u being hard working and examples of ur achievements telling them what you can bring to Certus. Tell them u are hungry for the job. Ensure you are articulate and dress professional not saucy. Listen and speak alot in the group more than most people if you can else you will get drowned out.
    If u fail, get into call centre jobs through agency work as that will give u experience. Maybe do door to door sales or get retail sales or a car dealership intern/experience for 6 months. You can really talk about your achievements if you do these sort of jobs. Switching from nanny or struggling actress with a degree won't get you in to recruitment so easily it will take maybe 50 failed interviews and by then u run out of companies. If u interview for 10 and get no where then stop and do call centre work for 6 months or a year then 're apply for recruitment with other organisations u didn't attempt the first set of 10 organisations.
