Interview processI was approached on Linkedin by a recruiter from PE Recruit. I sent my CV, and then spoke to the recruiter on the phone, who selected my CV to pass onto the company. I then had a phone interview with the HR department from America. The following week I was invited to attend an interview in the London office, with the last I had spoken to from America, as well as the senior investor, and a graduate. I was asked to return the following day, where I had 4x30minute video calls with the bosses in America, followed by a 90 minute Maths and Excel test.
The phone interview questions were CV based, and about my motivations for the job. Eg. Why did I choose to study my course, what interested me about this job etc.
The face to face interviews were very friendly and chatty, to understand more about me as a person/ what I would be like to work with.
The video calls were slightly more targeted, one VP asked if I inherited a grocery store from a relative, how would I go about valuing it. I was also asked about my future plans, and where I see my career headed.
The maths and excel test were all computer based, consisting of formatting graphs and tables, logical problem solving, and then a finance sheet, where I was asked to fid gross margin etc.
Most difficult questionI did not study finance or economics at university, so I found the questions relating to their figure sheet the hardest. There were a few terms I didn't understand.
Interview tipsThey were only looking for one person, which made it very competitive. They are a very friendly firm, and seemed really interested in the characteristics of who they were hiring, and whether that would be a good fit for the company. Just be yourself, and be friendly. Unlike other finance companies they aren't intimidating in any way.
