Application Advice:

Thoroughly research Wellcome and their values. Make sure you actually answer the questions and don't just copy and paste from other application forms! Finally, Wellcome isn't just for people with a science degree! If you're from an arts background, like myself, play it to your advantage and show how you can offer a different perspective or type of thinking.

Interview Advice:

Don't be afraid to show your enthusiasm! If you can, relate each answer back to Wellcome's mission. Draw on a variety of examples, especially those from outside your degree as this shows you're a well-rounded individual. Try and think of a couple of questions to ask them as this shows you are really interested.

Application Advice:

Have the confidence to talk to anyone if you are curious about what they do in the Trust. There are a lot of passionate, accommodating people who are willing to give their time up if you have an interest in their field.

Interview Advice:

Prepare, be ready to talk about what you've done and the competencies you have shown. When you get here relax, it seems to be a universal thing that everyone at the Trust is pleasant so just think about what you're saying and ask questions at the end.

Application Advice:

In terms of applying for a role, my advice would be to apply whatever the circumstances. I applied for this internship programme knowing that I did not have the best A-level results from school. Make sure you mention what you have done outside, whether volunteering or past jobs that even though may not have any relevance to the role you are applying for, any skills that you may have gained from the work will make a big difference.

Interview Advice:

To be yourself, just be honest if there are things that you do not know then it is ok to say and that you would be willing to learn.
Dress smartly
Be confident

Application Advice:

Don't be afraid to be individual, this is not your typical corporate role.Show your passion and only apply if you are on board with Wellcome's mission - know what Wellcome are all about. Visit the Collection.

Interview Advice:

Examples of team work - how did you help to solve the problem. Examples of leadership situations you have been in as well as examples of a time when you were struggling with something and how you overcame it.

Application Advice:

Answer the questions!! Almost everyone who answered all the questions got an interview. Be enthusiastic! Wellcome loves enthusiasm.
Demonstrate how your skills and experience relate to the job you are applying for. Any skills and experience are fine, as long as you can relate it to the job you're applying for. Keep it short and don't waffle.

Interview Advice:

Research Wellcome thoroughly. Research your area thoroughly and know specific things for your interview.

Application Advice:

Read up on Wellcome and its values before attending the interview, especially specific things about the department you are going into.
Make sure you are passionate and engaged with Wellcome's wider work - how it funds projects and some major projects it has funded.
Relate your skills and work experience to Wellcome's values.

Interview Advice:

I had to do a presentation in my interview, so make sure you are prepared for any questions they might ask afterwards. Competency based questions with some more technical questions on Insight and Analysis.

Application Advice:

The application process is very fair. You are told everything you need to know at every stage, so just make sure you read all the information available and focus on tailoring your application to provide all that you are asked for. But most importantly, be yourself! Wellcome don't have a picture in mind of what the perfect applicant is like, so don't overthink stuff and try to let your individuality shine through.

Interview Advice:

The interviews are fairly standard. It's likely you'll be asked some competency-based questions, some questions about you and some questions about the role and organisation. The best thing you can do to prepare is learn about Wellcome and try to practice.

Graduate Trainee, Graduate Development Programme at Wellcome Trust

Application Advice:

Convey your knowledge and understanding of and interest in the organisation and all that it does.

Give some thought and demonstrate how your previous experience and interests could positively contribute to the vision/aim and work of the organisation.

You do not need to have a science background to work here, although an interest in science could make the role more enjoyable for you.

Interview Advice:

Be yourself. People who work in the organisation are very friendly and it's important for them to get to know you, as employing someone is arguably more down to their personality than their skills.

Make sure you have read up on the organisation's strategy and recent news on their website.

Make sure you have investigated who will be interviewing you if you are given their names.

Ask yourself what you would like to know about working there/the role before going to your interview. Then make sure you ask any questions that haven't been answered by the end of your interview.

Rotations at Wellcome Trust

Application Advice:

Think carefully about how your previous experience has shaped your approach to work. Wellcome is a place that thrives on making new connections, be it across disciplines, departments, etc. Being able to demonstrate a capacity to look for new ways of working, or understanding things from a different perspective is an advantage.

Interview Advice:

The questions are very competency based - it's good to go in having quite a few examples of experience you've had up your sleeve. Try not to pigeon-hole yourself - this is a scheme that is aimed for graduates who don't necessarily have a fixed idea of what they would like to do for their career and your interviewers will be looking for this in you. Come with an idea of what you think this scheme can usefully do for you at this point in your life, but don't think this has to be prescriptive.

Application Advice:

If there's something slightly unusual that you've done, make it stand out.
Show you're flexible, adaptable and creative and show your interest in the breadth of work that Wellcome does.

Interview Advice:

At the assessment centre, there will be a competency-based interview. If you get past this round there will be a final stage interview which is more about whether you're the right fit for the organisation (by this point they know you could do the job!).

Make sure you have read the new Strategic approach and Wellcome's values.
Find out details about one or two areas you're really interested in and think of questions to ask your interviewer.

Application Advice:

I would advise candidates to have a good rationale for why they want to do this particular scheme, as well as why they want to undertake particular rotations. It is also a good idea to understand what the Wellcome Trust does at a reasonable level of detail.

Interview Advice:

I was asked competency questions as well as 'Why Wellcome?', 'Why this graduate scheme?' and 'Which rotations?'. At my final interview I was asked more complex questions which tested my ability to solve problems under pressure and come up with creative answers.

Application Advice:

The Trust wants candidates that are genuinely enthusiastic about working here and have ample evidence of their competency. Some rotations options may appeal to you more than others but signalling out only one or two when writing an application may suggest you would not benefit from the range of experiences on offer here.

Interview Advice:

At interview, ensure you have a variety of examples to suit competency questions on subjects such as teamwork or leadership etc. Also be prepared to brainstorm possible solutions to problems the Trust is currently experiencing and be reasonably up-to-date on important events that may have taken place in your desired rotations.

Application Advice:

Consider whether the rotational nature of the scheme appeals to you; it is not a scheme designed for people with very specific ambitions.

Interview Advice:

Make sure you understand what the Trust does and can show your passion for it. Try to avoid coming across as arrogant as that would be very likely to alienate your interviewer.

Application Advice:

Read the guidance and express clearly what you would get out of the graduate scheme - Wellcome is looking for people who will clearly benefit from time spent here.

Interview Advice:

As above, make sure you clearly communicate how you will benefit from the graduate scheme and your understanding and passion for the full range of activities that Wellcome pursues.

Application Advice:

Answer the questions very clearly and make sure you highlight the fact that you know it's a rotation based scheme and that doing different rotations is what you are interested in. If you only talk about one or two areas of the business your application will not be successful.
