Graduate, Nottingham

Graduate, Leeds
"The interview is based on competencies and involves questions surrounding, teamwork, strengths, weaknesses, why you want to work for the firm and why you have applied to the specific service line."
Graduate, Liverpool
"I was asked a mix of technical questions about the role/company and situational questions where you have to talk about a specific incident and what you did to resolve it/learn from it. The STAR technique works really well for these questions and if you have a couple of base answers ready to mould to the question asked you will feel much better prepare and at ease."
