What was the Numis recruitment process like?
At Numis, the recruitment process was different to what I was expecting in this industry for a Graduate position.
The Numis approach seemed much more streamlined and personal, only requiring us to fill in a questionnaire and personality test before inviting us to a telephone interview and then on to the Assessment Centre. This assessment centre was a mixture of a numeracy exam on the day, presentation (that we could prepare for in advance), group interview and HR questions, all of which were fun and engaging and designed to get the best out of us.
This process was highly attractive to me, as this clearly emphasised how Numis were looking for candidates that would fit in with the culture, rather than just a very specific set of skills.
We were then invited to a Business Interview, where 2 members of Corporate Broking & Advisory tested us on our technical ability, and although rather daunting, it gave more of a glimpse into what Numis life would be like.
