Employer Hubs / Gerald Eve / Inside Buzz Graduates

Interview Process


"Entering the company through the graduate scheme is taxing however is not as hard as other companies. The interview is relatively relaxed and seems to be more about finding out whether your personality will fit in rather than your planning knowledge."
Graduate, London
"I work in one of the regional offices and therefore did not go through the usual graduate programme. It is still extremely competitive as Gerald Eve is an excellent company to work for but process included just the one interview."
Graduate, Milton Keynes
"There is a substantial application form to fill in, including some questions, a cover letter and your CV. If you are successful with this, you get invited to an assessment day. This includes a group task, a writing task, an individual interview and a tour of the office. It is very relaxed and a chance to get to meet partners and graduates, as well as the HR."
Graduate, London
"Getting hired here is as difficult as anywhere else. However, having been interviewed at other companies, my company places a large amount on the personality of the interviewee and not exclusively on their technical knowledge."
Entry level, London
"When I applied for the graduate role, I was selected from my CV to attend an assessment day. This takes up the majority of a day and included group discussions, an interview with a Partner and HR, lunch with the Partners and a written assessment. I was then notified within two weeks that I was being offered the position."
Entry level, London
"The Gerald Eve application process involved fewer stages (only application and assessment day) than its competitors, but the application stage was potentially more demanding as more elements were required - CV, covering letter and five 200-word questions. The assessment day comprised a group discussion and presentation, interview and written task."
