    Initial application, Online SHL tests and then competency based interview and test. After my initial application I received the email to complete the tests within a couple of days. My interview date was 5 weeks later.

    When I had my interview I had the test first which lasted for 30 mins. The test was based on finding the correct information on a spreadsheet and also working out calculations to find the missing value. It was a multiple choice test and they provide a glossary of terms and calculator. After the test I was interviewed by two managers, the first part was going through my CV and they asked various questions relating to previous roles. The second part was the competency interview and lastly my questions for them.

    I had prepared well in advance for my interview.
