What hours do you actually work, on average?
What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
The two key things are 1) having a clear idea of what you bring to the table and why you'd want to work for us and 2) practice case studies (including mental arithmetic). Good preparation shows that you're serious about applying and helps you perform better in interview.
Do you have any interview tips?
The first round has three parts: 1) A relaxed CV chat where it's best to just be yourself and help us get to know you better, your motivations for applying, and what you've done up to this point. 2) A math test where you should be ready for simple data manipulation (GMAT practice questions are good for this). 3) A case study where the best thing you can do is make sure you plan out your approach before diving in. A good, detailed, well thought through plan is very impressive and, should you not get to the end, gives us the chance to see where you were going and give you credit for it. It can also help to stop you rushing and allow you to catch important nuances you may otherwise have missed.
