Interview Advice:

As cliché as it is, illustrate that you have a personality rather than trying to say 'all the right things'.

Application Advice:

Just think about your answers to common questions in advance. Plan your application, take some time over it to make sure it says what you want it to say about you. Once you get through the application stage to actual interviews and assessment exercises, just try to be yourself, and polite. Managers will often put more emphasis on a personality that they think will fit their organisation than just success at the task.

Don't assume that because you got into the big 4 you'll get in to Mazars. The interview process is mostly about the attitude you show rather than academic attributes.

Application Advice:

Be aware of what the future holds for Outsourcing.
The way the department operates now will be very different in the next 5 years and technology will have a large part to play. If you are keen to get involved in a constantly changing and dynamic environment then this is a great opportunity to grow and build very diverse range of skills.

Interview Advice:

Know what you're applying for.
When I applied I really didn't fully understand what Outsourcing did.
In essence we prepare the accounts for our clients so that the accounts can then be audited by the audit team.
We do a range of other services but that is what you will be doing during your training.

Application Advice:

Be yourself as the process will filter out and put you in situations where you have to be pro-active rather than reactive.

Interview Advice:

5 minutes on a topic picked out of a hat. My one was 'Me'.

I think the whole point of this was to be able to think on your feet and address people in your room, some being your direct competition. It is very similar to a real life situation where you might need to spend a week talking to someone you have just met.

Application Advice:

Nothing specific, just show an interest in the industry if applying for Financial Services. You don't need to show an in-depth knowledge just an interest and explain clearly why.

Interview Advice:

The first stage involved a case study and a few questions e.g. why consulting, why Mazars etc. It was very straight-forward and had a very relaxed atmosphere.

The assessment centre is more about seeing what you are like as a person e.g. easy to get along / work with, works well in a team. Don't get too bogged down on how well you do on tasks such as did you get the right answers etc. Try to relax and make friends with other candidates and the facilitators.

Application Advice:

Think about what skills the job requires and create an example of where you have previously displayed that skill. Try and think of a variety of examples and avoid using the same example for different skills.

Interview Advice:

Really understand why you want to be in the accountancy/audit world. Have a strong understanding of the company and the role and don't approach the interview with a limited understanding of what the role entails.

Think carefully about questions you want to ask before the interview. Questions asked by many companies are normally standard questions so it's quite easy to think about these beforehand but avoid rehearsing your answers. Ultimately you should make every effort to make the interview into a conversation - it's a two way process (you need to gauge them as much as they need to gauge you).

Graduate trainee, Audit at Mazars LLP
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Make sure you have a brief understanding of what audit is and what the ACA qualification is. There is no need to have a detailed understanding, just a brief overview. Practise the online tests before you do them for real.

Interview Advice:

After the online application stage, if your application is successful you will be invited to an office for a face-to-face interview. There is a short analytical exercise at the beginning of the interview. This typically involves reading a news article and then discussing the key points of it, identifying the main stakeholders. The questions of the interview will probably be generic e.g. "Why audit?" "Why Mazars?", although there may be some competency-based questions such as "Tell me about a time where you have worked in a team".

If you are successful at the first interview, you will be invited to attend an assessment centre, where you will be joined by other candidates. You will have to give a 5 minute oral presentation and the topic for this is normally picked out at random on the day. This is followed by a group exercise and a time-pressured written exercise which requires you to read through several emails and letters. After lunch there is a final one-on-one interview with a senior member of staff. This revolves around competencies a lot more than the first interview, although there may still be questions about why you have chosen audit, the ACA or Mazars. Example questions include "tell me about a time you have acted as a role model for someone". "State three of the firms values and why they are important in this line of work". "Tell me about a time you have had to multi-task".

Application Advice:

Don't be afraid to apply if you come from a non-accountancy background. They really want people with different experiences and backgrounds.

Interview Advice:

My interview consisted of an online application, then aptitude tests (verbal and numerical), then an interview at the office and then assessment centre.
At the assessment centre we had to do a 'case scenario' where we had to prepare a fake conference and assign a budget to each area. Then I had a partner interview, a group activity and a 5 min presentation.

HR and the team are always assessing you, even when you think its 'break time', so much sure you are on it the entire time

Application Advice:

I would advise any candidates applying for my role to research the company thoroughly and show this in their application. This will help you decide that company is right for you, which is just as important as whether you are right for the company.

Interview Advice:

I would advise potential candidates to be themselves in the interview. This is really important as we have a great team at Mazars and it is important for the managers to be able to assess that not only are you capable of doing the job, but also that you will fit into the team.

In addition, thoroughly research the ACCA qualification and think about why you want to do this qualification over the other accounting qualifications.

Interview Advice:

Be yourself, if you try too hard then you may come across as too rehearsed.
