    Interview process

    Before attaining the interview I had to pass three tests, these were numerical, verbal reasoning and abstract.

    Once passed there was a phone interview which lasted around 45mins this was conducted by a member of the recruitment team who laid out how the interview would work, the questions asked were expected, however it is important you have done your research to give the best possible answers also why you applied to them specifically so remember to be positive.

    After the interview I was told my answered will be put against a set of criteria and if I matched it then I would progress to the next stage, once explained I proceeded to ask questions myself.

    Most difficult question

    Describe a time where you were told to change in order to improve performance.

    Interview process

    The application process began with an array of competency questions which judged what I would do in given situations. The next step was an online testing platform which included numerical, pyschometric and verbal reasoning tests. The following stage was a telephone interview, this involved the interviewer getting an idea of my motivations as well as an understanding of what knowledge i had gained on the company. Other factors were tested including competency questions including what best motivates myself and give a situation where leadership and other qualities were expressed.
    The next and final stage was a two day assessment centre. The first day was an opportunity to meet the other candidates and was not assessed. We were greeted by our recruitment manager who took us through a presentation on the company successes and what would be featured in the roles that we had applied for.

    Most difficult question

    The most difficult element of the interview process had to be the numerical reasoning test. Mathematical problems is an area where I lack confidence and technical ability as I possess interests and more inherited capabilities in other areas such as leadership and drive.

    Interview tips

    Get to know the organisation, how they operate, where and how. Search the internet for environmental influences and threats in their market as this was one area that i was recommended to look up after my telephone interview.

    Be positive, confident and address each person you are presenting to and keep your presentation to the point and factual.

    Try to contain your nerves, it helped to be relaxed in almost all of the exercises and I found taking an mp3 player while preparing for each exercise to be useful which was advised prior to the assessment day by the organisation.

    Experiences at the assessment centre

    The assessment centre was an extremely pressurised experience. It involved 4 exercises including a face to face interview, a presentation which i had 45 minutes to absorb a large amount of information and then present for 20 minutes relating to it, I had a role play where I was required to adopt the role of a member of staff at the organisation convincing another colleague who was difficult to influence to adopt new practices and then a group exercise at the end of the day.

    It was an intense experience where i had to draw on many capabilities that i have gained and put into practise while at university and I was particularly tested on my communication ability.
