Practice case studies online; have a clear understanding of what they consist of and how to present the case in a concise and coherent way.

Interview Advice:

Show what you're strengths are and why you would be good for the role. However don't be afraid to expose weaknesses.

Also know why you want to join the scheme you're applying for. Don't give a typical answer - e.g. I'm a good team player - think out of the box! Show them you know the company!

Look into the Mars 5 Principles - when you work for Mars you are truly expected to follow these principles in all your work, and they even start guiding your decisions outside of work!

Interview Advice:

Take time to think about who you really are, your strengths and weaknesses, what others would say about you - there is a strong emphasis on personal development and self awareness in Mars.

National Account Executive, Convenience at Mars
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Marsh's application process is very focused on personality and how well you network with others so it's important to come across as confident and comfortable in front of the assessors, demonstrating that you have the right soft skills for the job.

Interview Advice:

Must give a presentation in both assessments days. Team challenges in the first and an interview with two senior marsh officials, a HR person and a Pareto person in the second. There are no maths challenges until the final assessment.

Graduate broker, Construction at Marsh
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Be genuine and engaged in questions. Make it as unique as possible - questions like 'why insurance' or 'why Marsh' may sound generic but if you can put a personal spin on it then you will come across well. Equally make sure you ask thoughtful questions about Marsh - senior management are very aware about the shortfalls of Marsh as an employer (as well as the benefits). Showing recognition for this demonstrates that you are thoughtful and have made a full evaluation of Marsh for your career.

Interview Advice:

Be authentic and enthusiastic in why you want to work in insurance and for Marsh - if you can tailor them to your personality/objectives all the better. Try to avoid being too loud and attention seeking in the assessment days, this doesn't come across well and the assessors are expert at seeing through this. Don't be backward and get involved where you can - 'be yourself' is overused but it really does apply here.

, at Marsh

Application Advice:

Be yourself at interview, it's a unique culture that may not be right for you.

Interview Advice:

They do not interview from a list of questions, quite difficult to prepare for like some other companies.

Application Advice:

If you want to take a role that will stretch you on an intellectual and functional perspective, this is an excellent start.

Interview Advice:

Company fit.

Marketing assistant, Extra at Mars
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Be confident in yourself and your abilities. The company does not employ experts, only those who can learn quickly and manage people.
If you are very technically-focused do not apply. Little to no technical knowledge is applied. This is a people-management role.

Interview Advice:

Use three words to describe yourself. What three words would your close friends and family use to describe you? Why are these different?
Don't just talk to people in the tasks. Talk to everyone you see as this reflects well on you as a person and identifies you as the type of person who Mars employ.

Graduate Project Engineer, Engineering at Mars
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Be yourself - Mars is a very personal company that wants to see applicants passion for the 5 principles and the company. Don't try to be too corporate and professional just relax and enjoy the experience.

Interview Advice:

Most of the interview will be competency based. There was very little technical stuff in my interviews but that will probably depend on where they feel there were gaps in your application. For competency based questions think through examples in advance and do a lot of personal reflection. Mars is very big on learning agility so even if you don't have an answer, showing some form of self awareness around the subject would be a good step.

Application Advice:

, Ice Cream at Mars
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Remember that the role has to be well suited for you, use the interview and the application process to check that the job is what you want to do.

Interview Advice:

Make sure you are good at talking about you, what it is that you have done in the past and how that relates to the 5 principles that Mars has. Having a number of examples which you can draw from is always useful, you never know if they will ask you two questions around the same theme.

Product technology scientist, Site R&D at Mars
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Think about development. Consider bigger picture i.e. people, vision and purpose.
Consider learning agility.

Interview Advice:

Think on your feet, don't be too rigid in structured answers.
Situational based questions " tell me of a time when" apply the STAR theory.
Always consider your learning's.
Be open and honest, the more vulnerable you can be the better.

National New Business Manager, Food at Mars
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Read up about the company, what targets does it have over the next 5 years (more engineering focused). Look into the 5 principles and think of ways you've demonstrated these. Look into the programmes Mars runs. E.g. Mars in the community, etc.

Interview Advice:

Again...read up about the company, what targets does it have over the next 5 years (more engineering focused). Look into the 5 principles and think of ways you've demonstrated these.

I could give you loads of generic advice but really all I'd say is be yourself, be confident and show some passion for the role. So long as you do this and you're a good fit, you'll get the job.

Project Engineer, Wrapping/Process at Mars
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Make sure you use good examples of how you have demonstrated leadership competencies in the past. Use the STAR technique to answer these questions. Be yourself - it's important they see you for who you are, so that they know you will fit into Mars' unique and friendly culture.

Brand Manager, Mars Chocolate UK at Mars
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Focus on the type of person you are and the type of person you want to become. Mars does not expect you to be a functional expert in your role when you are applying and will fully work with you to teach you everything you need to know. The focus points of the application are therefore your learning agility and your ability and willingness to work on your own personal development.

Interview Advice:

It is fine to make mistakes and admit to some wrong, as long as you show the ability to learn from this and take key things that you could have and will do differently in the future.

The interviews include all the usual of individual interviews, case studies, presentations, group excercises and role-play negotiations.

Sourcing Manager, Procurement at Mars
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Be yourself, be honest and know your strengths and development areas well. Be open to the experiences a rotational graduate programme will offer you - i.e. there are many functions outside of sales and marketing that offer a whole range of great experiences.

Category Manager, Category & Insights at Mars
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Show your personality and be yourself.
Mars is a very people focused company - think about the human impact when answering questions or giving past examples.
Mars has a very strong culture - does this fit with you?
There is a lot of emphasis on personal development - think about how you've worked on development areas in the past and where your strengths and weaknesses are.

Interview Advice:

Enjoy it, be yourself and reflect on how you are doing as you go. Get to know the interviewer.

Category Management, Category at Mars
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Be authentic and don't be afraid to show how you're different. Mars doesn't hire people that fit a certain mould - there's room for individuality.

Interview Advice:

The interviews are often more soul searching than you might find at other companies of a similar scale - 'When are you at your happiest?' for example.

Customer Development Manager, Sales at Mars
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Know the role that you are applying for and do your research on the company. Think about what makes your CV and you stand out, what's your story?

Interview Advice:

Know your CV really well, be proud of it.
Know an area you are technically passionate about- e.g. a final year research project. Be able to discuss it in depth and also broadly.

Product Technologist, at Mars
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Mars is looking for people who can:
1.) Demonstrate being able to learn quickly, espcially from failure. Failure is fine as long as you learn from it.
2.) An ability to lead and work with a wide variety of people.
3.) Being friendly and curious.
4.) What is it that drives you as an individual, what are your values and what do you value in others?

Interview Advice:

1.) Research Mars as a culture and the principles they want to operate by.
2.) Know a bit about FMCG and the brands.
3.) Think of examples where you can bring to life your experience of learning and adapting to situation and how you have overcome challenges.

Commercial Strategy Executive, Commercial Strategy at Mars
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Practise online maths and reasoning tests before doing the real thing - don't just dive in, otherwise it's a wasted opportunity.

Think through the longer questions on the application form very carefully - remember you're not expected to have perfectly polished professional answers at undergraduate level. Using an example of when you've overcome a difficulty in an extra-curricular activity can be just as powerful as using an example from some work experience you've done.

Interview Advice:

Research the business and demonstrate a keen interest in its unique characteristics (e.g. the fact that it's privately owned). Have an answer ready for the standard questions (Why Mars?; Why not another FMCG's?; Why this scheme specifically? Tell us about a situation where you demonstrated leadership/failed/were challenged? etc.) at interview, but remember that the business really values authenticity - remember to be yourself, otherwise you/and the interviewers won't really know if you're a good fit or not.

Client Advisor, Real Estate at Marsh
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Find experience. The market is quite accessible to gain experience, be that through working in a call centre in the Summer or looking into your school leavers network to see who currently works in the industry. This will really help you understand the industry which will set you apart at application time. Most people don't start out wanting to go into insurance so if you can show some drive to move into it with proven experience or research your application will only be strengthened.

Interview Advice:

Be yourself. It's a cliché, however a lot of the interview and assessment centre is based around how you can network. Don't be frightened by the word "networking" as it is effectively just talking to people. If you are yourself you will come off much more genuinely enthusiastic than falsely saying what you think they want to hear.

Application Advice:

Learn everything that you can about Marsh. Be yourself throughout the process and just be as prepared as possible when going into the interview. When it gets to the assessment day stages also make sure you have fun with it.

The scheme is non-rotational and also be prepared for long days due to studying for the Acii.

Be prepared to not be a broker. If that is what you are applying to do, specify that.

Interview Advice:

Be prepared with the regular competency questions but also be prepared for some curveballs. Learn your CV inside out so DON'T lie or embellish on it.

You are also asked about your interests outside of university/current job.

Make your application fit together with the skills you have and the requirements of the job. Emphasise teamwork ability, people skills, professionalism and work ethic. Relax and be yourself at least a bit for the phone interviews. Practice for the online tests so you know what to expect.

Interview Advice:

Read up about the business and its core values - the greater good, business transparency, ethics. Read about current events and consider how insurance may have been involved or affected (i.e. floods in Cumbria, falling price of oil). Speak in a measured way for your presentation and don't be afraid to consider your answers carefully in the interview. They may ask you for a weakness or a 'time you were wrong about something' - think of a good answer. Focus on what makes you unique and different - everyone has a good degree but they want to know about your skills and personality.

Interview Advice:

Have a strong answer prepared for why you want to work in the industry, not just why Marsh. Try and take a new angle to the presentation questions asked of you in the face to face sessions. If you do not know the answer to a question admit that this is the case rather than trying to make up an answer - people who try and make up responses to factual questions do not reach the face to face rounds.

The second time round I just relaxed and allowed myself to let all the enthusiasm and passion come through. Be ready to explain why you acted a certain way not just what you did. They are really interested in why and how you did things more than what you actually did.

Ensure that you fully research the industry and have some clear ideas on where within the company you would like to be placed, or the skills that you would like to develop in order to ensure that you are placed in a business unit which suits you well and will help you to achieve what you hope for.

Interview Advice:

Ensure that you are yourself; this is a people led business and so you will be matched to an extent with a business unit based on the version of yourself that you prefer. The scheme will therefore only work if you have been honest in your approach so you can be matched well.
Prepare a good hook for the question on the most interesting thing about you and make sure that it is actually a fact about you. As with most applications you also need to ensure that you do your research and demonstrate confidence, but also a supportive attitude in the group activities.

Application Advice:

Research the company and it's ethics, and ethos and business aims to be able to talk eloquently why you want to work there, and focus on why your skills would make you a great candidate who deserves to work in a company like Marsh. Do some practices for the online tests which are often available via your university careers centre. Make sure to have basic business knowledge: ROI, who the chancellor of the exchequer is etc... When writing about your skills, use examples and why that skill makes you a good candidate.

Interview Advice:

Think about your presentation and communication and focus on being clear and calm in your individual presentations. Make sure to prepare for the Pareto (the recruiters) assessment centres, which centre around the ability to work as part of a team - making your ideas are heard while not overly dominating, working as a whole group for the good of everyone, and thinking laterally. Perhaps be prepared to be a little more assertive than you usually are to ensure you are not ignored by others. The centres use classic psychological games and group exercises so read about some of those online. But, as much as the above is important - be yourself and remember what makes you unique and interesting to them.
