Baker Tilly Tax

Hi,

I am currently applying for the Baker Tilly Tax Adviser graduate scheme.

I have a history degree 2.1, and am on course to get a distinction in my MSc (only got thesis to hand in so distinction is pretty much guaranteed). I had undertaken a history degree with the intent of pursuing a role in the finance sector, as I know that it is a good degree to have for these graduate schemes. However, I had changed these plans when I received funding to do my Masters, and planned to do a PhD. However, funding for PhDs were badly cut this year, and the competition was stiff so I only have one more chance to get this so I need to start thinking about reverting back to my initial plan, which I am more than happy to do.

As it is late in the year, this is the only scheme left open and I need to get the application in asap. This is the first one I have ever done so I was wondering if anyone with experience applying to Baker Tilly, or a similar scheme, would be willing to help me with my application. I have filled it all in, and it is good to go. However, I wanted to see if someone experienced in this would have a quick look at my answers and offer me some advice. I was going to post the entirety of the answers I had given on here, but I don’t know what the protocol for that is so I will happily message someone instead.

I hope there is someone out there who could offer me some advice as I am very keen to try and get this role.

Thanks in advance.

Hello,

Hi woodpecker84

I think this thread would help you
http://www.wikijob.co.uk/wiki/baker-tilly-interview-questions

Thanks for the link but it seems to contradict what is on their website…

#5

Their website says online application, tests then and invitation to an AC which is what I’ve been put thru… Why? What is your experience like?

#6

Well the link above said assessment day and then interviews …but their website just talks about the ac as the last round… That’s why… I have applied but still haven’t got any response…

#7

Within the assessment day there should be a first round interview but I know that after that they have a partner interview which comprises of a case study. I think they are pretty vague about the last partner interview but prepare for it!

#8

Thanks for the info… I guess I will have the online tests instead of the telephone interview as it is not an RSM office… How hard were their tests ?

#9

I guess so! But someone say they were applying for tax but got a telephone interview? I’m not sure. What’s the harm in preparing for both! Hehe

The tests were basic, SHL if not mistaken. If you’ve done loads then this should be a breeze

Thanks and good luck for the ac !
