Stage 1

Application Form and Situational Strengths Test

You will need to complete an online application form, followed by a situational strengths test. The test requires you to assess various scenarios, that could occur on the graduate programme, and how you would respond to them. Reponses will be limited to a set list. You will not be timed for this test.

Stage 2

Online Tests

If your initial application was successful, you will be asked to complete an online numerical reasoning test. These tests assess your decision-making and ability to analyse numerical (or statistical) data.

Those applying for an engineering scheme, will also need to sit an online inductive reasoning test.

You may be asked to repeat these tests to ensure the validity of your results.

Stage 3

Telephone Interview

You will be invited to a telephone interview – here, you will be asked about your skills and behaviours. Depending on the role that you applied for, you may also be asked some technical-based questions.

Those who have applied for the finance, management and software schemes will need to attend a second telephone interview.
