What hours do you actually work, on average?
What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
Don't feel as if you have to have studied finance or accounting before applying. What really matters is that you can demonstrate that you are interested in corporate finance and business partnering, and that you have analytical capabilities.
Look at the standards of leadership and find examples of how through university and extracurricular activities you demonstrate them.
demonstrate a willingness to work hard and be open to new learning experiences.
Do you have any interview tips?
Much of the interview is structured around the standards of leadership, so brush on up those!
For the case study, I found that it was really helpful to practice consulting case studies from books such as 'case in point', as these provide a conceptual framework for approaching business problems. The case study is not about finance knowledge as much as it is about whether or not you can be confronted with a great deal of information and step back to see the big picture.
Be happy, eloquent, and dress smartly!
