Once the deadline has shuffled by, we’ll review all the applications and select candidates that we’d like to invite to an assessment day.
These are very similar to sas: who dares wins… only kidding. An assessment day involves you spending half a day at our offices to carry out a workshop style exercise.
As well as basking in the glow of your own glory and brilliance, you’ll be offered a place on the vacation placement scheme.
We’ll give you dates for a one week placement and you’ll have a choice of department. For training contract applications, after the assessments, if you are successful you’ll be invited to a face to face interview with two partners/directors.
If you have carried out an assessment day/interview, we let you know the outcome usually within two weeks.
Don’t worry. We know this might feel intimidating but it’s in our interests for you to do well. We want your application to be amazing and we want you to succeed.
So, if you’re feeling stuck and have any further questions which aren’t covered on the website, then talk to us and we will be happy to help.
