    Junior Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Brevan Howard (London, England (UK)) in August 2015.

    Interview

    I was contacted by an agency working for Brevan Howard. It was a screening process where they asked simple questions about my achievements and CV, as well as when could I begin and what salary would I accept. If you pass the interview then they set up an interview in London, which is much more technical.

    IT Developer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Brevan Howard (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    I applied for this role through a recruiter. The job description was a tad vague and so I wasn't wholly sure what to expect.

    I was told by the recruiter to do a fair amount of research on the company, but at no point in the interview was I asked 'Why Brevan Howard?' or

    I had a face to face interview with two senior members of their team, and a third member from their Quant team also came in to ask some more technical questions.

    Overall, I found the interviewers friendly, with a good sense of humour. The interview was not quite what I was expecting but I wouldn't say it was overly difficult. I lacked the technical skills for the role but for someone who had some experience of these I don't think they would have struggled.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Brevan Howard (London, England (UK)) in February 2009.

    Interview

    there were 4 interviews with lots of quant questions. some of the guys were not particularly friendly which is probably a reflection of the type of person that works there - arrogant. still, it was a great salary on offer.
