Our selection process

It is critical that we recruit motivated, skilled and forward thinking  individuals with the right mix of competency, skills, attitude and motivation. We therefore ensure our recruitment process is multi-dimensional so that you have the best opportunity to show us what you are made of.

If you are successful at the application stage, we will invite you to complete an online critical thinking test, and to attend one of our assessment centres which involves a range of activities, as well as the chance to meet some of our current trainees and trainee supervisors.

At every stage you will be assessed against our training contract competency criteria and the firms behaviours and values.

We recognise some of this may be daunting so if your initial application is successful we’ll always provide you with more information so you know exactly what to expect at each stage of our recruitment process.
