Graduate Management Trainee
Difficulty rating 60.0 / 100
Interview processI had a brief telephone interview to discuss what the role was and I was asked questions about my education as stated on my CV. I was also asked why I was interested in the scheme and my motivations to have a role in management, and more specifically in the care industry itself (as that is the primary focus of CCS).
Most difficult questionWhy the care industry? What do you want out of the scheme?
Interview tipsAsk questions in the Q&A sessions. They have time for lots of questions so ask anything. Don't worry about bringing your CV because they will have a copy on the desk. Don't panic, the day was relaxed, although smart. Lunch was nice, so get there quick!
Experiences at the assessment centreThe assessment day was inefficient. Firstly, I was only invited to attend the week before, leaving me little time to request time of work and plan my travel arrangements (which we were to receive no re-imbursement for). We were required to be there at 9am for a 9:30 start. The email I received about the day detailed we would all have group activities and our presentation until lunch at 12/12:30. I was told, after lunch some people would be invited to stay for the afternoon session, which was to involve a panel interview. On the day, we started and "ice breaker" where everyone had to stand at the front and introduce themselves with their name, where they live, their university and degree subject/s and their proudest non-academic achievement. After that were presentations from 2 employees of CCS, a graduate already on the scheme and the CEO. These were also question and answer sessions. After this, we completed a 10 minute group activity in groups of approximately 10 people (5 mins alone, 5 mins group discussion) while they wandered around making notes. We were provided with lunch at 12:30. After about an hour, were told that one group would be invited to do their presentations first so the other groups were free to "go for a walk" for an hour. I was in this first group so I gave my 3 minute presentation, was asked one question by the panel of 4 (all men). My group were eventually dismissed at approximately 2pm with the promise of a response the following day of whether we were being invited to the interview at a different location on a different date. I was disappointed in my 14 minutes of activity for the day and that my expectations of the timetable of the day weren't met.
