Trainee Interview (Neutral Experience)
I applied through other source and the process took 1 week - interviewed at EY.
Interview Details – Campus visits to Universities, where candidates are identified. They are then required to send in their CV's as well as academic transcripts, which is essentially scanned by HR to see who they would like to offer articles to.
Then those candidates are invited for a week program (BEP- Business Experience program) where they are given activities within teams, and are given exposure to the firms culture and its staff. The facilitators of this program then in essence have a continual interview with the candidates throughout the duration of the program. This information is feed back to HR, who then decides to offer the candidates which "fit in" articles.
If your not going to EY for articles, then the post is advertised, and applicants send through their CV's and based on the most suitable applicants, interviews are done, and the so called "best person" gets the job.
