Baillie Gifford 1st Round

Baillie Gifford
#1

Has anybody had an interview? I’ve got my first round next week, I’m unsure whether to expect technical questions or not.
Input appreciated :slight_smile:

#2

Hi,
All the best with your interview, I am about to apply so would not know about what to expect, but did you submit a one page or a two page cv with your application?

Cheers

#3

I sent a one page, that’s what I send everywhere.

#4

You only applied three weeks ago, that’s not long at all(by any standards). I applied in September and only heard back in late october.

#5

Hi guys,

I’m also very interested in finding out if anyone who’s applied for a graduate position has heard back at all? If you have, how long was the response time? Thanks!

#6

I heard they were only offering three positions - so assume unlikely hear on here anyone who got one. They will likely not inform failures until they have three confirmed offers accepted.

#7

@LilShorty,

Do you mind telling us how you this? And do you mean three positions across all 3 grad schemes, or just for the investment management scheme?

#8

Ha it sounds like you are assuming everyone who is on wikijob is an automatic no

#9

Hey everyone,

Got a first round interview for the Investment Operations Grad Scheme at the start of Febuary. Has anyone had their interviews yet? I’ve been told to prepare a presentation, and expect psycometric testing plus an interview!

Could anyone offer any advice?

#10

Yup edinburgh IM was apparently only going to take 3

#11

Just received a rejection today for IM after being on hold for a very long time!!! They are very retro as well; sent me a letter all the way from Edinburgh.

#12

Good luck buddy.

#13

Nice one blondeamon; we figured out you are blonde; you don’t have to prove it.

#14

Did anyone apply to BG this year round? Has anyone heard back yet?

#15

Yeah, have 1st round next week, after it was postponed due to the weather. Apparently the interview is based on your CV and financial news…

#16

I had applied in the middle of October, but still haven’t heard back. I believe they responded by Post?

#17

yeh I had an interview a few weeks back. Think it went ok, but still waiting to hear back. The interview was actually quite good. just talked through cv and a general ideas about things going on in the world.

#18

They phoned with regards to getting the interview. We find out on Christmas eve apparently, I had my interview yesterday. Fingers crossed!

#19
