Our selection process


We’ve hundreds of roles to choose from, all around the world. That means our assessment process can vary across business areas and grades. However, you’ll always have a specific recruiter who’ll be your main point of contact to discuss each step and what you can expect.

Often assessment tools are used in addition to reviewing candidates' CVs and application forms followed by formal interviewing. Each roles requires a unique set of skills, experience and characteristics. We use a variety of tools to assess a candidate's ability to ensure they will be a great fit to the business.

You can find more details on our ‘Professional Careers Application Support’ page. If you have any questions, please get in touch with our Professional Hire Recruitment team.

Assessment process

Our assessment process is your chance to show us your true self. Our step-by-step process helps us understand who you are, how you’ll fit into our team and how far your potential could take you. Let’s take a look at how it works.

A Recruiter will review your CV.

If your skills and experience are relevant, you’ll need to complete a digital assessment or initial 30-minute call.

Feedback is sent to the hiring manager who decides whether to interview you. Your interview could be one of several formats (see the next section).

If you’re successful, a recruiter will call you to talk through a provisional offer.

Once your offer has been approved, a contract will be sent out.

Our onboarding process then begins, to help you get settled.

Our assessment tools

If you’re invited for an interview, we’ll let you know the full interview process for that particular role, so you know what to expect. This might include:

  • Virtual interview (this is the most common type and typically lasts around an hour)
  • Face-to-face interview
  • A panel or just one or two people
  • Assessment centre (where we assess several people at the same time).

We use several different tools for assessment, as well as more traditional interviews – and we’ll always let you know beforehand. Depending on the role, the content might include:

  • Technical questions to assess your knowledge
  • Case studies – either on the spot or to be presented back at interview
  • Behavioural questions to get a feel for whether we’re the right fit
  • Digital assessments such as Codility testing – an automated online coding test
  • Finance and Excel testing
  • HireVue digital interviews where you receive a task and record your responses on the platform via video
  • A task for you to complete beforehand or during the interview.

Supporting your recruitment experience


It’s important to us that our workforce reflects the world we operate in. Which means we want to remove any barriers for people applying to join us. If you have a disability, health condition, and/or are neurodiverse, or there are other reasons why you’d benefit from any adjustments, please just ask or look out for the ‘support need’ question as part of your application. We want you to feel at your best and will do everything we can to support you.

You’re the best person to advise on any adjustments you might need. But if you’d like, we’ll happily make recommendations based on what we’ve done for other people. For example:

  • Extra time to complete tests or answer questions
  • Captions enabled for video calls
  • Assessment materials presented in different formats
  • Choosing to have your camera on or off for virtual interviews
  • Being able to refer to notes
  • Opting out of hypothetical ‘what would you do next’ questions
  • Having the speaker face the camera for you to lip read
  • Short comfort breaks
  • Encouraging people not to speak over each other in group assessments.
