Application Advice:

Don't worry about coming from an IT background, just demonstrate an interest in the potential of digitization and transformation in large companies and what you and your personality can bring to the organisation. They are big on cultural fit as well as potential, but you don't need to have any sales/IT experience so far.

Interview Advice:

Try and reach out to people on Linked in who have done the associate programme for advice. It is a long process and the assessment centre is very intense and tough, but with the right advice you will be able to excel. They are looking for personality and potential, so really do show the best of who you are.

Definitely know the main things about the company, i.e core strategies, all of which can be found on the website. Also, research the company values as these are talked about a lot within the company and at the interviews.

Assessment includes dinner with company execs and leadership, so make sure you have done a bit of linked in research before hand.

Application Advice:

For the Graduate Program:

Personality is Key.

Use a range of experiences in the interview.

Work together but also be heard in the exercises.

Interview Advice:

Let your personality show, using more personal examples lets the interviewer get to know you better.

Smile and try not to be nervous- they want to like you.

If you don't know something, it is better to say you don't know then to make something up.

Application Advice:

I got an internship followed by a job / graduate scheme because I knew someone who already worked at Computacenter so never had to apply. Interviews I had were very relaxed.

Application Advice:

The application process is long and, at times, quite challenging. My advice is to keep at it and be confident in your abilities and make sure that you are learning about the company and the opportunity that you are applying for along the way.

Interview Advice:

Be yourself. Company and programme knowledge is important but a huge element in the interview process is whether or not you will be the right fit for the company. If you are not yourself it will become increasingly easier to spot as the application and interview processes go on.
Learn about the company but don't sound scripted. The interviewers want to see that you have taken an interest in the company and not that you know how to read their website.

Application Advice:

When applying for one of the Graduate schemes it is important to demonstrate your commitment and drive to do well in your career. CC is a people driven company and highly invest in their employees. Be yourself!

Interview Advice:

CC want to ensure that they are the right fit for you just as much as you are the right fit for the company. When applying for one of the Grad Scheme I would highly recommend being yourself. Looking back now there was no need to be so nervous. Being able to recognise your transferable skills from any studies/job you have had previously is a good thing to do. CC are not looking for an IT background so don't let that stop you! Be the best you can and smile!

Service Management Associate, UK Services Management at Computacenter

Application Advice:

Understand the role you are applying for, know why you want to work in IT and as an associate. Think about why you want to work for the company, you need to fit into the CC culture so it is important to think how and why you would like to fit into the culture. Practice the tests and make sure your video is on a plain background.

Interview Advice:

Remember the STAR method. Do not worry too much about knowing everything about computers. Look at CC values and how you will fit with these. Be yourself, this is key you will not be able to keep up a persona for the assessment day so do not play a character. Have one or two insightful questions to ask everyone you meet. Be a team player this is not the apprentice. Practice your presentation, it will leave an impression so practice makes perfect. And reach out to people to help and give you advice.

Application Advice:

Take each step seriously. It is a long but potentially very rewarding process. Do your homework, research the company well, add on your relevant experiences as to why the company should hire you. Be yourself and open during the assessment centre. The assessors honestly just want to get to know who you are, and what you are passionate about.

Interview Advice:

Make sure that you know the company well. They aren't looking for the finished product, but rather someone that is ambitious, self driven, and interested in a career in sales. Have examples of when you displayed their winning together values, whether at university, or a previous working experience.

Application Advice:

It's an incredibly intense two day assessment centre, so try not to peak too early. Pace yourself, approach each challenge logically and steadily and be yourself!

Interview Advice:

Many different stages and final panel interview with 3 senior people. This is a very intense interview and parts may feel a bit like an attack but it prepares you for what's to come, showing your resilience and ability to handle pressure. Those of us who actually enjoyed the challenge of combating these questions were the ones who got the job.

Don't try to be something you're not - it won't work. Compuacenter look for the sorts of people who will fit into the company. If that is you, you'll be fine. If you try to pretend it's you, then you'll probably get found out pretty quickly.

Application Advice:

Keep the end in mind. Whenever answering a question or approaching a task have the end goal in mind and consider what you want the audience to take away from what you say/do.

Interview Advice:

Be relevant and concise when answering interview questions; use the STAR technique. If you make it to the assessment centre, ask lots of questions of the current graduates who will be there to help; they have the experience of being in your exact situation and what they did well/could have done better.

Application Advice:

Be yourself. The company hires people partly for who you are, so show your personality and you'll do just fine. Make sure you do some background reading and have some questions at hand to ask.

Service Management Associate, at Computacenter
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Do not worry if you are not technical! Everything you need to learn to be successful in role, you will either be taught directly or will be given the opportunity to go out and learn for yourself.

Your personality and attitude to work will be the most important and determining factors in your success at CC as a company. Do not try and be someone that you are not, because you think it is what the recruiters want to hear. You will be found out at some point before the end of the 18 month programme and probably won't have enjoyed yourself or made the most out of working for this fantastic company.

Interview Advice:

Once the introductory chit chat is out of the way, the meat of the interview will probably be competency based questions i.e. lots of questions where you are asked to give an example of yourself displaying a particular behaviour or skill. Try and think of times when you have materially contributed in the work place, university or even socially. Remembering that they are trying to gauge you as a person. Don't be tempted to say "we did this" or "we did that". The interviewer is interviewing you, not everyone else in your old team or university seminar group, focus on your own contributions.

Sales Specialist, Sales at Computacenter

Application Advice:

Do not worry too much about your knowledge of IT going into the role, it is not what they are looking for. Focus on your ability to sell and any experience you may have had in sales. If you don't have any, focus on examples where you have excelled in competitive situations (e.g. sports).
Be prepared for a long, difficult and gruelling assessment centre.

Do your research on the business, this organisation leads strongly with its culture and will likely be a 'great fit' or one that feels very unnatural to an individual. Make sure you have a clear reasoning for wanting to follow the career you are applying for and that you are able to demonstrate working in teams, driven, motivated and able to influence and persuade.

Interview Advice:

Be prepared for a wide range of activities, I'm afraid to say the cliche but it really is the best advice I can give, but be yourself. If you are right for the role they will see that come through. Enjoy the dinner & night before and the day itself is enjoyable while challenging at the same time.

Application Advice:

I entered Computacenter through the Associate Programme. This is a fantastic way to enter the business as you get the opportunity to spend 18 months getting to truly understand the business and get to know those within it. My advice would certainly be to apply! During the interview process and the role itself, make sure you stay the person you really are and ask questions!

Interview Advice:

Be confident and make sure you put your points across during the group exercises. Use the opportunity to ask any questions you may have; it's not very often you get the chance to have time with a CEO/MD/Directors of a FTSE250 company.

Application Advice:

Really do your research on the company and don't be put off if you don't know much about IT- it doesn't work against you at all!
Answer every question- don't worry if the examples you give are not work-place based just make sure they relate to the question.

Interview Advice:

Make sure you have examples of when you have used your own initiative, ComputaCenter like to see somebody with 'drive'.
The process can seem quite scary but try to relax and be yourself- let your personality shine through because at the end of the day that will make you stand out more than anything.

Application Advice:

You don't need experience in IT to get on this programme. CC look for people that they think will fit into the company, and who has the potential - not for people that know it all already. But equally, if you are invited to the assessment day and they think you are better suited to another role, they have been known to give other offers.
Try and come across as genuine, enthusiastic, willing to learn & develop, sociable etc.
If you get invited to the assessment day, use the evening before to get to know the assessors as they'll be scoring you from the start and the next day, but also the other candidates - you'll do a couple of group tasks the next day so it does help if you get on!

Application Advice:

I would advise to be yourself and ensure you relate your personal experiences that you will discuss in the interview process to Computacenter's core values. Make sure you understand the role you are applying for and reach out to those already in the role for support in understanding the job if you want to hear some real life experiences.

Interview Advice:

Questions will focus around various competencies such as commercial awareness, relationship building, problem solving etc. Try and bring in examples from your personal life as well as professional examples. CC is a real "people company" and the interview is a good opportunity for us to assess if you have the right personality traits to be successful on the Associate Programme as well as in role at the company.

Best:

Opportunity to grow your ever expanding network with both customers and vendors.
No two days are the same - variety and spontaneity. You must be prepared to drop everything at the last minute and change accordingly.
Contact with senior management and the opportunity to learn so much. Put in the spotlight and encouraged to challenge and ask questions.

Worst:

For the first 6 months there isn't that much opportunity to get hands on. There is a lot to learn and a lot of information to assimilate.
Highly competitive and constantly under pressure to be 150% every day, even if you don't feel it.
Male dominated industry with a lot of egos which as a woman, can be rather intimidating.
Can sometimes feel stale due to the tenure of some of the employees and feel as though there is a lack of an innovative outlook which is frustrating

The company is growing at a tremendous rate globally. We are expanding and therefore the opportunities are endless.

The environment is amazing and the ‘people’ make the company. So friendly and welcoming.

The prospect to move anywhere in the business.

Rotations give you responsibility which you must embrace and shine.

Worst:

The company is not as flexible as I thought with work life balance. Given the travelling and being on customer sites, the work life balance does take a hit.
