GRADUATES: HOW TO APPLY
If you’re interested in building the next generation of banking, developing your skills at the UK’s largest digital bank and working on the frontline of emerging technologies, we want to hear from you.
So, if you have, or are on track for a 2:2 degree then apply now. Our biggest tip for the application process is just to be yourself! If you share our vision, are eager to learn and can help push us forward, then we want you.
Applications are open now and will close on different dates for different programmes. You’ll need to check the closure date for the programme you want to apply for on the individual programme pages and ensure your application form and online tests are all submitted by that date.
Stage 1: Application and Online Testing
The first step is to complete our online application form. After that, we’ll ask you to do a strengths and cultural assessment which shows us whether we’d be a good match. You’ll then have to complete a numerical and critical reasoning test. If you want to practice these tests, you can at jobmi.com. The application and online testing stage should take around 90 minutes.
We’ll give you a feedback report within a few days of completing the first stage and within a few weeks of the closing date we’ll let you know if you’ve been successful on progressing to the next stage.
Stage 2: Video interview
After your online tests, there’s a 30-minute video interview. If you’re applying for a graduate programme and are successful at your interview, we’ll invite you to the assessment centre.
Stage 3: Assessment centre
The assessment centre day is made up of a variety of activities, both group and individual, a further strengths based interview and a virtual reality exercise. Remember this day is to enable you to get to know more about us just as it is for us to get to know more about you. If you’re successful, we’ll make you an offer to join the programme.
We’ll give you a full feedback report shortly after your day at the assessment centre. This will explain what we think your strengths are and how you might develop them.
Here are some top tips to help you at each stage of the way.
We want to know how you feel about our industry and why it interests you. And since our purpose is to help Britain prosper, we’d love to hear examples of how you live our values. Whether it’s your experience of volunteering or your ambitions to get involved in our charity work, how can you help us achieve our purpose while achieving yours?
Strengths-based interviews are a bit different from traditional assessments. We’d like to learn about what you’re naturally good at, so be prepared to show us how you do things across various exercises – on your own and with a group – on our assessment days.
We recognise that people are different and we’ve tried to make our application process accessible to everyone. Get in touch if you have any accessibility requirements or need any other help to complete your application and interview: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our video interview will ask you to answer a series of questions in a certain amount of time. But just because there is 45 seconds, don’t feel you need to fill that time up. As long as you say everything you need to say, that’s all that matters.
One last thing
Above all, we want to see the real you. We’re not interested in perfectly performed responses and learned answers. We want to hear what you’re truly passionate about, and why you believe this programme is right for you. So, be yourself! We’re looking forward to meeting you.
