Remember first impressions count so the application form is a major opportunity to sell yourself. Before you complete the form, you should gather accurate details of your academic and employment history including any work experience placements.
While completing the form, remember to:
- Read and follow instructions carefully
- Proof read everything you write including checking grammar and spelling
- Be concise as you can elaborate at interview stage
- Don't repeat statements you've read in our brochures and the website
- Don't be vague or lie about your results as we'll check your academics at a later stage in the process
Next stage will be a series of Games-based Psychometric Assessments that measure your cognitive skills and behavioural preferences. We’ll be looking at your numerical and abstract reasoning abilities and natural behavioural preferences. For instance, how you overcome challenges, how you work towards goals and how you make decisions.
The penultimate stage of our process is a Video Interview. Here you’ll need to record your response to a range of questions and case studies. They bring to life the range of work we do and what it’s like working here. This is your opportunity to tell us why you're interested in a career with us. You can prepare in advance by thinking about the behaviours and skills we’re looking for by visiting "the skills we look for" page.
The video interviewing platform we use may include automated decision-making by applying an artificial intelligence algorithm. After you’ve recorded your video interview responses, the algorithm evaluates your answers by studying your video responses by using a voice and facial assessment algorithm to provide a fair and objective score recommendation. Applicants with high recommended scores will progress directly to the next stage, whilst the video interviews of all other applicants will be subjected to human review to determine whether they should progress or not. The algorithm has been designed and tested to be objective, and to focus on the things that are important to the particular job role you’ve applied to. It has been, and continues to be, tested for bias related to gender, ethnicity, and age. Find out more on our Career Conversation page. Read more about our use of automated decision-making in our recruitment privacy statement.
The final stage of our recruitment process is a virtual immersive assessment day we call ‘Career Focus’. It brings together everything you’ve learnt about us so far as an immersive ‘day in the life’ experience. You’ll work in groups and individually, on a variety of case studies that help you learn even more about the work we do.
