The Application and Recruitment Process

Book open Reading time: 2 mins

What is the recruitment process?

Our application process is simple. We feel we can best get to know you through conversations, so we won’t ask you to undertake any psychometric tests or attend an assessment centre. If you are interested: 

  1. Apply online by uploading your CV and covering letter. 
  2. Telephone interview 
  3. First round interview with a member of HR and a representative from across the business
  4. Final round interview with senior management  

Interviews are currently taking place remotely over Zoom. 

What qualifications do I need to have to apply? 

Our Junior Software Engineers and Analysts are recruited from graduates across all disciplines. We look for people who are inquisitive, technically minded, and fun to work with. Induction and pre-project training is around 10 weeks so new joiners need to be ready to take on lots of learning from the start of their career. 

We look for academically bright graduates, which means a 2:1 or above at university level in any discipline and all As and Bs at A level. Although you may not have experience in technology or finance, we will teach you everything you need to know - but your interest in these areas must be genuine. 

Please note, we always consider and take into account extenuating circumstances so please state in your application if this applies to you. 

How can I prepare for the interview process?

We want to get the best out of you in your interview. You know what qualities and skills you bring to us, so make sure you tell us. 

We need to be sure you are actually interested in the different facets of the role so researching and showing an enthusiasm for the asset finance industry, our projects, our clients and what the graduate programme entails is a must. 

Showing how you stand out from the crowd can be tough, so have a think before the interview about achievements and experiences that make you the best person for the job. 

Our company values are very important to us, and we’re always encouraging people to live and demonstrate them- so be prepared to talk about these in your interview. 

Where will I be based?

All our employees are currently working remotely from home. As a graduate, you will be based at our London HQ with the opportunity to work flexibly. There may be future opportunities to be seconded to one of our US, Australia or New Zealand locations, depending on your role.
