I applied online. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Macquarie Group (Sydney (Australia)) in October 2014.
I responded to an online ad then had a pre-screening interview with HR. This answered a lot of my questions about the role. Once HR was satisfied I had an interview with the group manager.
