Application & Selection Process

We have two annual entry dates in September and April. To find our future International Graduates, we’ve developed a multi-stage selection procedure.

The first stage – Online Application


Apply online via our website. This will include uploading your CV and answering a series of questions. We will aim to respond to all applications within 2-4 weeks.

The second stage – SWOT Analysis


Your application will then be screened by our Recruitment team and if successful you’ll be asked to upload a SWOT analysis of your personal profile (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats).

The third stage – Online Test


If you meet the criteria, we will ask you to complete online verbal and numerical tests which will assess your ability to analyse business-related information. Each test takes approximately 15 minutes.

The fourth stage – Telephone Interview


Candidates who have successfully completed the online tests will be invited to take part in a telephone interview with a member of our Recruitment team. In this interview we would like to gain an understanding of your motivation for the application. You will also be asked competency-based questions.

The final stage – Assessment Days


If you pass the telephone interview, you will be invited to join us for our unique assessment centre in Luton or Hanover. We will spend 1 ½ days getting to know each other. The assessment days, including a number of one-to-one and group-based activities, will give you the chance to demonstrate your skills. You will also have the opportunity to meet some of our current graduates, to find out more about us, our culture, our organisation and our International Graduate Programme. Within a few days of the assessment centre, we will provide you with a detailed feedback by phone of your assessment day performance and notify you on whether you’ve been successful.

Should your assessment be successful, we will be delighted to welcome you as our new International Graduate – congratulations!
