Application Advice:

Give as much detail/examples as possible in your answers and try to bring your personality through in your application.

Back up everything that you say with an example. If, like in my case you have to attend an assessment centre, be yourself throughout the day and take every opportunity to network.

Application Advice:

Show your personality throughout the whole application process and really emphasise your strengths and interests, but be prepared to highlight your weaknesses (we all have them).

Graduate, Marketing and Communications at Capita

Application Advice:

Read the job description and ensure that you highlight the experiences and aspects of your personality which relate to the requirements. The main aspect of this job is being a future leader so make sure you can get across why you will be able to do this.

Interview Advice:

I remember being asked where I wanted to be in 5 years times and the other questions were similar to those which you would expect from a generic interview. Look these up online for examples.

Application Advice:

Make sure you learn as much about the company as you can. Commercial awareness is key.

Interview Advice:

Personality counts. As woolly as this sounds, my experience was that my interviewers were looking for someone who would fit into the culture of the organisation as well as weighing up qualifications and experience.

Application Advice:

Research the company and relax before/ during the assessment day as it isn't something you can prepare for.

Application Advice:

I would advise you to be yourself- don’t worry too much about being the loudest person in the room (that isn’t who they hire).

Interview Advice:

Give a diverse range of examples and remember to be interesting. They are not looking to quiz you on the company but a general awareness is a good idea.

Graduate Trainee, at Capita
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Focus upon tangible experience no matter in what context, with focus on leadership e.g. captaining teams/societies at uni etc.

Interactive assessment day process - important to be natural as the focus seemed to be on getting the right people rather than the qualifications etc.

It is good to get an idea of the company - as it is fairly complicated, as this is typically asked about.

Interview Advice:

Knowledge of Capita.
Experience of leadership / being part of a team.
Getting your personality across is important.

Commercial Graduate, Group Sales at Capita
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

First of all, only apply for this if you are a) willing to relocate, b) willing to take on a lot of study work outside of your day job.
Secondly, be prepared for the online tests- there isn't any revision you can do for them, but make sure you are in a quiet room with no interruptions and that you are focused on the task at hand.

Interview Advice:

I was asked about experience I have had leading others- this does not have to be in a professional setting.
The best advice I can give for the assessment day is to enjoy yourself. It sounds cliché, but as they day involves several different activities and is quite full-on, it is best to settle into it and get to know your fellow interviewees. I found that everyone running the assessment was very friendly and it seemed like they really wanted us to be successful, which helped me to relax and be more confident. The main difference between the Capita assessment and the ones I have had with other companies is how welcoming everyone. Since I was successful with Capita, I believe that really helped!

Sales Graduate, at Capita

Application Advice:

Be flexible and open-minded. Capita offers such a wide-range of products and services to a number of different markets and that opens a variety of opportunities and the majority of those you may not have even know existed!

Interview Advice:

Show collaboration in assessment centres. Collaboration is a key value of Capita and is valued throughout the organisation so being able to demonstrate your abilities to collaborate with others is essential.

Operations Data Analyst, Operations at Capital One
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Although the application process seems daunting and intense its not actually as bad as it seems. The aim of the assessment day is to make you feel as comfortable as possible - you're not going to be yourself if you feel like you're going to throw up every 5 minutes out of stress! The whole aim of these days is to make sure you're the right fit for the job. You're CV has got you to that point on qualifications. The rest is about who you are as a person, what your interests are and what your goals are.

Interview Advice:

The interview is more of a job fit role, they'll ask you the standard "Why Capital One" "Why IT" "What interests do you have" but in general they want to know what you didn't put on your CV, and interesting facts about yourself like you've voluteered abroad, have a huge passion for animals - things that make you stand out from the crowd of people that just reel of there CV again.

The best advice i can give is; be yourself. Don't worry about if your qualifications are good enough - you got to the interview they clearly are!

Scrum Master/Delivery Manager, IT Delivery at Capital One
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Be proactive - The way to get the best out of working at Capital One is to be proactive - get yourself a to-do list and keep on top of it. This helps to keep me motivated and people are always happy when you get done what was asked of you.

Listen to others - It's beneficial to take time out to listen to other peoples thoughts/ opinions. You don't always have to agree with them but it helps to spark useful conversations and it often works out best when you come to some sort of mutual agreement.

Interview Advice:

Come prepared to the interview - do some research on the company and have some idea of what is required from the different job roles and where you could see yourself fitting in.

Application Advice:

The application form is absolutely tiny so takes no time at all. Worth doing first!

Statistician, Statistics at Capital One
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Learn how to do business case studies that you can find online, our interview process is based around them.

Interview Advice:

When doing a business case study, always show your working, discuss things with the interviewer and make sure that you are acting interested in the job and asking questions at every opportunity. The most important advice I can give is that if you make a mistake and notice, go back and find it rather than getting in a fluster. This is a key skill that we look for in a candidate.

Business Analyst, Marketing at Capital One
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Show your creativity and show how you're different from others who may be applying for the job. Part of why I was hired was because of my degree differing from the other candidates.
Show examples of when you've thought or acted innovatively or against the norm. Show how you think beyond the surface level and when you've had to go deeper. Show example of how you've used insights to solve a problem that needed solving.

Interview Advice:

Ask about people's best experiences at the company. This really helps you understand that it's not just a place of work, but a place where you can achieve some life changing goals. I really wanted this job when I learnt there was the possibility of a London Marathon place.

Try and show as much knowledge and as many skills you have in the short time you have. When I was asked to produce creative ideas for social media, I didn't just state the creative and fun parts, but went into detail about where the technical and legal issues may be, and why an audience would enjoy the kind of content I was suggesting.

Social Media Community Manager, Brand at Capital One
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Demonstrate your strengths and show how you are different from the other candidates. Any leadership roles you have done (no matter how junior you feel they may be) is a talking point and can always be expanded upon in an interview.
But most of all, be honest and be yourself. The Capita Lead the Way programme is looking for individuals with drive, ambition and just someone who has something about them.

Interview Advice:

In any interview you should be the one who does most of the talking. The interviewer should only speak for a minimal amount of time and the interviewee should be expanding upon and demonstrating their skills and qualities.
As with the application, be honest and just be yourself. I was asked in an interview "Where do you see yourself in 5 years time?". This question is tricky but just be honest. I gave a realistic answer and explained that I would have finished the graduate scheme, achieved a MSc and ideally be in a management role. There's nothing worse than joking about being at Board level after 5 years and hoping to be CEO by that time - it shows that seniority and job titles are all that is important to you.

Application Advice:

Interview Advice:

Relax and be yourself. nothing in the interview process is there to trick you. If you relax you will do well and enjoy yourself.

Graduate Internal Auditor, Internal Audit – Non FS at Capita
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Involved an application form, telephone interview, assessment day, numerical and logical tests, and a final interview.

The process is fairly long, but the first couple of stages are fairly straightforward and from what I remember only cover very standard interview/competency questions.

Interview Advice:

At the assessment day aim to become friendly with some of the other graduates, it makes the day a lot easier as it was a long day (8-6 in some cases, which is a lot longer than others I attended) this included periods of waiting around.

The assessment involved a team task, presentation and an interview.

It is probably different for opposing roles, but I wasn't quizzed much about Capita at the interview stage but knowing some facts and figures wouldn't harm your chances. Mostly, questions were posed around my motivations (for the job role, for finance, for qualification), work experience and academic background.

Finance Graduate, Finance at Capita
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Research the company and make sure you know which sector you are applying for. Tailor your application to the skills they ask for in the role and don't be afraid to talk about work experience which you don't think is directly relevant. e.g. I worked in retail but I was able to demonstrate my ability to influence and persuade customers to purchase extra items which are key skills of a Product Manager.

Interview Advice:

Research the industry, know what is happening in the news/government. It really helps to have something else to talk about especially in the interview as I was asked if I knew of anything that was happening at the time that would impact the company/product. Make sure you know what a Product Manager does and find examples of when you have demonstrated those skills. Also, if you get to the assessment centre remember to smile and talk to people that work there; it is as much about your skills/experience as it is you.

Application Advice:

Be yourself. Make sure you research the company (especially the division you are applying for.) Have questions to ask the employer as it is as much about seeing whether you like the company and want to work here as it is for the company to see if you are the right fit for them.

Interview Advice:

Don't bluff. Be concise and precise when answering questions. If you're unsure or nervous, as the interviewer to repeat the question o to elaborate so you don't misinterpret anything

It was the first application process that I actually bought into and believed what was being communicated. Having a Board member at the assessment centre was very inspiring. The key was to be myself and communicate my strengths throughout the application process.

Application Advice:

To be well informed about the nature of the profession. Many graduates think that a technical writer is the person, who writes and publishes books that we are finding in bookstores; while technical author is the person, who develops the manuals/ handbooks/ online help system of a software.

Interview Advice:

- To know things about Capita in general, and pertaining the particular department of Capita that they'll be joining.
- To be prepared about the kind of assessment that they will be facing in the assessment centre (i.e. writing guidelines, proofreading)

Research the company and its values, find a part of the business which interests you directly, look at contemporary themes which may affect Capita and talk about them.

Use examples for everything you say about yourself and make it personal.

Interview Advice:

Likely to ask strengths and weaknesses, questions about being a leader (Do some research about what makes great leaders and apply to your own strengths) get ready with examples!

In my opinion Capita also recruit on personality so be yourself!

Application Advice:

I would advice them to research the company, particularly the part of the business you are applying to join. As Capita is such a big company it is important to know more about what it does at a group level as well as the business inside Capita that you are planning to join.

Interview Advice:

I would recommend they research the business analyst role to understand how it fits in the delivery and IT solution. I would also recommend having an example of where you have demonstrated good time management skills as that is a vital competence required to be a business analyst.

Application Advice:

As this is a graduate job, making sure that you have done things at university that are not just your course can really help show what transferable skills you have.
At uni, I helped at open days, which gave me experience in talking to large audiences. I also ran a society, which gave me the confidence to know that I could organise different things. I was also part of several other different societies, and worked part time in a job relevant to my course whilst I was studying.
Just having these things alone doesn't help, but making sure that you tailor your CV to show how the skills that these things gave you matches the skills needed in the job is useful. In my job, I find that I need: presentation skills; organisation skills; team working and interacting with others, amongst other things.

Interview Advice:

I had three interviews for this job. Firstly a telephone interview, then an assessment centre, then an individual face-to-face interview.

For the initial interview, be open to things that you might not have considered yourself for before. You'll be trained on the job, so you won't be expected to know how to do the job before you start. Researching a bit about the company can be really useful as well, so that you can ask some relevant questions.

In the assessment centre, there is a lot to take in. Having done your research to start with really helps it be a less overwhelming experience. We had lots of different tasks, from simple numeracy and literacy tests, to group exercises, to individual presentation tasks, to even having an office tour. The best advice is really just to try and be as engaged as possible, and (although this is really a cliché, is true and is actually really hard to achieve) be yourself. We also got the opportunity to meet other members of the department at lunch, which was a really nice way to get to see what kind of people we might be working with.

The individual interview, I had to give a presentation on things that stood out for me at the assessment centre and what it was like. It was also an opportunity for me to ask questions about the job and understand the role better. I was asked some pretty typical interview questions. These included: tell me about a time that you worked well as team; tell me about something that you achieved recently that you are proud of; tell me about a time that you struggled with something, but overcame that difficult. As my interview was around the Olympics, I was also asked what sport I would enter the Olympics in and why!
There are lots of places online that you can find these typical questions, and I found that it was really worthwhile to have thought about the answers beforehand, especially if I had several situations that would work as an answer, to have picked the one that best demonstrated the answer. Obviously, you can't always know what you're going to be asked, but it's good to feel prepared. It's amazing when you look back, at how much you've done!

Application Advice:

Be open minded - if successful you might not be allocated your first choice division and UK location. However, these can change in time. Be flexible, have an open mind-set and the opportunities and advice you will receive as a Capita graduate are endless.

Interview Advice:

The ability to work successfully as part of a team is one of Capita's core values. Be prepared to give examples of times you have demonstrated positive team work skills and the lessons you learnt from working as a team (these can be academic or work examples).

Also be prepared to answer commercial questions about Capita. In the phone interview they will ask lots of questions about how Capita make their money, the markets they are in, share prices etc so really make sure you do some research.

Application Advice:

Its a great job! You are not expected to know much about the role before you start- they will train you up. The job involves a fair bit of presenting however they don't expect you to be amazing at it from the word go! You also need to be a people person as the job involves lots interaction with customers and colleagues.

Interview Advice:

Be yourself and prepare well! It's quite a long process but definitely worth it - just remember everyone is as nervous as you.
