Must be passionate about investments

Graduate Trainee, Multi-Asset Investments at Schroders

Application Advice:

Make sure you know what you're going for. This isn't investment banking. Be yourself and be truthful throughout the hiring process. Show an interest in the field, but also be proud of your interests and hobbies whatever they may be. You'll soon find out that the people here are diverse and that there are many interesting conversations to be had.

Interview Advice:

They asked me some questions I didn't know the answer to (and that I now realise I couldn't have possibly known the answer to at that time). They would much rather you admit you don't know the answer and show your willingness to learn than try to blab your way through an answer that you (and your interviewer) know to be wrong.

Application Advice:

Be personable and inquisitive - a high academic standing is a given, ultimately the people that choose you want someone who they can get along with on a day to day basis.

Interview Advice:

Bring you own personality and a bit of confidence (though not too much, arrogance does not come across well).

Application Advice:

Talk to someone who works here to find out if it is the right fit for you.

Graduate, at Schroders

Application Advice:

Try and differentiate yourself through the examples you use - use examples from all aspects of your life (i.e. not just those directly related to the world of finance).

Interview Advice:

While good academic results are important, the way to stand out is through your personality. It might sound cliched but be yourself; Schroders has a very good culture and it is important that new employees fit in with this culture. If the team you are interviewing for think you will fit in then you instantly have an advantage.

Application Advice:

Apply early, know why investment management vs banking, be passionate about finance and economics.

Interview Advice:

Read about economic news and how it is impacting markets.

Investment Analyst, Economics at Schroders
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Be interested in the industry, Schroders should not be the only asset manager you apply to, know the competitors, the situation with the industry as a whole and where Schroders' strengths and weaknesses lie relative to it's competitors. Be flexible as to where you may end up in the business. In the current system you will apply for one of a few areas and then be assigned a more specific role within that area.

Interview Advice:

Know the industry and what Schroders has to offer. If asked to present in advance, make your presentation slick and relevant. It is very competitive, you need to show you bring something to the table. E.g. being able to churn out what was in the headlines financially that morning won't impress anyone, it just shows you've read the news. However if you interpret some recent news and form your own opinion as to what this means for Schroders and for the market, then you show some level of ability.

Analyst, at Schroders

Application Advice:

Be specific - don't waffle. Try to draw from all your experiences and areas of your life.

Interview Advice:

The people interviewing you are the heads of various bits of IT, so use the process to get to know them as well as selling yourself. Make it more of a conversation.
Be honest - Schroders has a very specific culture, so if it's not you don't try to fake it, because 1) they'll realise, and 2) you won't like it if you did get here.

Application Advice:

The initial online forms may seem over the top but they are deliberately like that to filter out those who do not really want the job so stick at it. When someone has just rushed it because it is so long it is blatently obvious so put the time in and it should pay off.

Interview Advice:

All the standard interview questions:

- Team work example
- Leadership example
- What have you failed at and what did you learn
- What would you invest in now and why

Application Advice:

Don't think you have to have studied finance or economics at university to get into such a role. Just have a good work ethic and positive attitude towards learning. Take an interest in the business area - doesn't mean reading the FT every day but be aware and have an opinion of what's going on.

Interview Advice:

Be yourself, don't try to be someone you're not. Most of the questions are competency based finding out about your motivation, leadership and teamwork skills. They also want to see how you think; there's no right or wrong answer provided you can back up what you say.
