'How do I apply?'
All applications must be submitted online via our online application form.
'What does each stage involve?'
Stage One- Online application
- You will need to answer three questions. Take a little time to research your answers. You’ll then be invited onto our assessment platform. We use aptitude assessment to ensure you are assessed fairly, not on where you went to university or whether you did the DoE...
Stage Two- You’ll be invited to complete a video interview
- This will involve answering general interview questions about our industry and business. We want to get to know you better and understand how you communicate. If you are applying for ALM there will be specific maths, probability and statistics questions too!
Stage Three- A visit to the Assessment Centre.
- This will vary by role. For investment consulting and fund research roles you’ll be invited to a half-day group session, which may be virtual given the current circumstances. For ALM roles, you’ll have a more focused interview looking at your quantitative skills and competencies.
Stage Four- A final interview process
- A final interview with different leaders from across the business in a speed format. Three 20-minute interviews with two leaders per interview – sounds fun, right?
If you require any adjustments or do not have access to technology, or the right setting to complete the online/virtual parts of the process, you can email our People team at email@example.com and we’ll be happy to help.
'When can I expect to hear back?'
Once the deadline for applications closes on 31st October 2021, applications are reviewed by the People team, hiring managers and selected team members which can take some time. You can expect to hear back from us regarding next stage interviews by November/December.
'When would I start?'
