How to Apply
Online application: There is an initial set of screening questions which will determine your eligibility for the role, including your right to work in the UK and your academic background. It is very important that you have your academic grades to hand when completing this form and that you input this information carefully. We will then ask you to tell us about you and why you’d be a great fit for the role!
Online testing: We’re looking for graduates who can adapt their learning style, are flexible, and can think broadly. To help us assess this, we utilise an online general intelligence assessment. The assessment takes about 35 minutes to complete and has plenty of practice questions that aren’t timed. Make sure you use these to ensure you’re as prepared as possible for each different component.
Assessment centre: The assessment centre will involve a number of activities such as an interview, presentation and group task, assessing your team working, presentation, communication, and influencing skills. You will also have time to talk to current employees in order to learn as much about your future career as you want to know.
Offer: We’ll call you to confirm your offer and then email your contract to you. You’ll need to complete our background checking process prior to joining.
Start: You’ll complete a one-week induction in our London head office.
