THE RECRUITMENT PROCESS

The recruitment process consists of two face-to-face interviews and an opportunity to meet or speak to someone in our team who would be your peer.

FIRST INTERVIEW

This is an informal meeting with a senior member of our team. It’s an opportunity for us to hear about your aspirations for your next move and for us to share with you the story of how and why Gate One was founded and the types of clients and projects we work on.

We’ll explain how you can help build and shape the firm alongside your client work, and give you an insight into what it’s like to work with us and our commitment to our team members. If you and we feel it’s a good fit, we’ll invite you to a second interview.

THE SECOND INTERVIEW WILL INCLUDE

  • preparing and delivering a presentation on the day, based on a case study we will give you
  • a personal pitch by you to help us get to know you
  • structured interview questions
  • a discussion around an insight or article from the Gate One website.

The different aspects of the second interview have been designed to enable you to showcase your skills and individuality. We want to find out what you can do and what makes you tick.

WHAT HAPPENS NEXT

We think it’s important that you have a real understanding of what being a member of the Gate One team is like so we will happily arrange for you to meet with or speak to someone who would be your peer if you were to join.

If after this process we mutually feel like Gate One is the right next step for you, you will receive a call from one of our Partners offering you the job!

About the team and events

What is a Gateaway?

As a team of management consultants working at a range of client sites, we  hugely value the opportunity to get together. We hold quarterly Gateaways which are an evening followed by a day of training, work-shops, discussions and socialising! These are held just outside of London. The Summer Gateaway is a three day trip to somewhere on the continent. It’s our chance to celebrate the successes of the last 12 months and build our business plan for the future. Recent destinations have included Lake Como and a castle in Austria. This year we’re off to the Loire Valley in France!

How often do consultants visit Gate One HQ at WeWork?

Fridays are typically the day consultants come to the office. The operations team is a permanent fixture (finance, HR, recruitment and marketing) along with anyone who is on the bench. We also have regular visits from Gate One Incubator teams.

Is it true you have dogs in the office?

WeWork is a dog friendly office so Tom (Manager) often brings in Dylan, his Shitsu, who is now a fully fledged member of the team.
