Step 1: Application submission
Submit your CV and a 200-word response detailing your understanding of what Alpha do\
Step 2: Cognitive Test (& Coding Test for Developer roles)
If you pass the initial screening stage, you will be asked to complete an online cognitive test. These are a series of adaptive, gamified tests designed to test numerous cognitive abilities.
For developer roles, you will also complete a Coding Test designed to test your competency to write and solve a code-based problem
Step 3: Video Interview
If you score above the minimum threshold for the cognitive test, you will be invited to complete a video interview. The video interview typically contains 4 questions designed to assess your understanding of Alpha, your motivations for the role and your relevant skills.
Step 4: Telephone Interview
If you pass the video interview stage, you will be invited to a competency-based telephone interview with Bright Network where you will be assessed on your communication skills, and ability to think logically/analytically.
If you are successful at telephone interview, you will be shortlisted and shared with the Alpha team. We will then invite candidates to our Assessment Centre.
Step 5: Assessment Centre
The assessment centre consists of 3 components:
- CV/Competency-Based Interview – a one-to-one competency-based interview with one of our consultants to talk through your motivations for the role. This will also give you the opportunity to ask any questions you might have about the Alpha and the role
- Case Study – a ‘mock’ project that intends to assess a combination of logical problem solving, creative thinking and soft skills. You will be presented with a brief, Excel data and a PowerPoint template and will be asked to prepare and present a slideshow containing analysis and set of recommendations. There will be a brief Q&A at the end
- Group Exercise – you will work with other candidates to solve a challenge together. This will test your ability to work effectively in a team
The assessment centre is currently being run remotely. Timetables, Zoom links, and access to our file management application – Box – will be shared in advance of the assessment centre. There is an informal session at the end of the assessment centre to hear from our recent graduates and ask them questions!
Step 6: Final Round Interview
If you are successful at Assessment Centre, you will be invited to a Final Round Interview with one of our Directors. This will assess your motivations for the role, commercial awareness and will provide you an opportunity to ask any further questions you might have
