What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
From my understanding - RM recruits graduates throughout the year. Though it is likely to advertise more roles at the end of each year (as most companies do for grad roles). So if you are planning on starting your grad job at an 'odd time' check the website and speak with HR and they might be flexible enough for you.
Another thing to note is that a lot of graduate schemes have set start dates for their schemes. So for example they may interview in September this year but the start dates may be March next year. At RM it seems this is not the case. I had my interview 2 weeks before the start date for my role. So again (reiterating the above point) - don't limit yourself by not checking if there is flexibility regarding the application process.
Do you have any interview tips?
RM is split into a number of divisions, of which ADS is the one I work for. Do your research into what ADS does. Your interviewer will be your prospective manager (at least this is how it was in my case) - therefore try to impress them with the specific knowledge you have about the particular division you are going for (not just general information about RM as a whole - though this is important information to also know). You can get this information from the company website.
The process I went through was as follows (though it may vary for you):
1. Submit CV
2. Phone Interview 1
3. Online Tests (verbal - numerical)
4. Phone Interview 2 (I think this was an oddity in my case as maybe they were still not sure of my fit)
5. On-site Interview 1 (included competency based interview and presentation)
6. Onsite interview 2 (HR interview)
7. Job offer (2 days after the 2nd interview)
