Interview: Tips & Advice


"The application process is quite rigorous and long-winded. Really have a think about what you want from a career with Fidelity and how you can add value to the company. Knowing and understanding the company values is essential and try not to stress about it too much. Everyone here wants you to succeed so just be yourself and do your best."
Intern, Tonbridge
"My process was an online assessment form followed by a telephone interview, a video interview and finally an assessment day at the office."
Technology, Placement Student, Kingswood
"I wouldn't stress too much about the interviews as they mostly consist of questions about yourself. Research the company and the market, but you won't be tested on anything technical. Also, don't be cocky."
Intern, London/Kingswood
"I had an online assessment that consisted of psychometric tests followed by a phone interview and then a face-to-face interview over Skype. Once I had passed all these I was invited to an assessment centre that consisted of group and research tasks as well as another interview. My tip would be to stay relaxed throughout the entire process. You'll be able to communicate better if you're not on edge."
Placement Student, Surrey and London
"My top tip for candidates applying is making sure that you're a match for the culture and understand the core values of Fidelity, as the company looks for these in new hires."
Intern, London/Kingswood
"There's an online form followed by telephone, face-to-face and video interviews. There is then an assessment centre with three rounds of interviews, an Excel test and an individual task. I would really advise candidates to understand what they are applying for. It seems simple but understanding the role, the business and the industry is really important. This not only comes across well in interviews but it is important to understand the role to see whether or not you would actually enjoy it."
