Interview Process


"I had to complete a maths and English-based exam. After that stage I was offered an interview where I had to do a presentation on a project suggested by the company."
Entry level, London
"I found the process simple to follow. I was well informed about who I was going to meet and the structure of the interview in advance. The interview process was engaging and included an activity that I could prepare in advance for."
Graduate, Birmingham
"I was interviewed and tested for two weeks before I got the job. Most people are hired on recommendation basis."
Experienced, Brighton
"An application, CV and cover letter are first submitted to the company via the website. If you pass this initial stage you must complete online assessments to test your numerical and verbal reasoning skill, etc. After this stage is an interview and then afterwards you will be offered a job or not."
Graduate, Edinburgh
"Interview process (once you get through) is fairly relaxed and straight forward. The interview is one of the plus sides of the company's recruitment process - it is not a competency based tick box exercise, but primarily a chat to see what you're like as a person."
Graduate, Cambridge
"I started as an intern and then was offered a permanent position after 6 months. The interview process is formal but relaxed, having a background knowledge of the company is a must."
Graduate, Bristol
"Relatively simple process in comparison to most other companies. Initial applications before being invited for an assessment day involving a psychometric test and an interview."
Graduate, Derby
"There was an application form followed by an interview if you are successful. You do a numerical/verbal reasoning test and interview usually with two senior members of the group which usually includes a short presentation on a topic of your choice. Interviews are harder at other companies."
Graduate, Altrincham, Manchester
"I completed an online form with information entering and questions, and was then called after several weeks and offered an interview. I was called and offered a job a few weeks after the interview."
Graduate, London
"The interview process was clear and simple. I really like the part where I had to make a technical presentation to the professionals who now I am working with. I really worked hard for this presentation and I think that could be the reason that I got a job offer from my company."
Graduate, Brighton
