Did anybody else apply for the private banking trainee position. Have done the tests which were pretty ridiculous anybody else heard anything?

#2

Hi,

I did the test as well. It was so so random, I completed it on Monday this week and just received an email stating that i have the telephone interview sometime next week.

Have you heard anything yet?

#3

Yeh same email so just wait and see if the telpehone interview is as strange as their testing

#4

Hi TR226,

Did you have your telephone interview? I was a little shocked as it wasn’t competency based just asking me about my CV. Not sure I did to well but just have to see. Have you had yours yet?

#5

its this afternoon. was expecting mostly CV stuff to be honest but will let you know how it goes

#6

Good luck, with the telephone interview. I suppose it depends on your CV. I did law at uni and a couple of postgrad courses so it was why I wanted to switch etc…

I did expect some competency but it wasn’t that way inclined.

Let me know.

#7

What were the tests like? Standard SHL numerical and verbal tests?

#8

No not at all, they were some very random company I have never heard of. 90 minutes and about 100 different questions - from numerical to verbal reasoning.

Very long winded.

#9

Oh dear. What do you suggest is the best way to prepare for it?

#10

tr226 have you had a response from your telephone interview yet?

#11

I had mine at the end of last week and have yet to hear back. I think it’s meant to be fairly swift.

#12

I had mine on wednesday, she stated that we would hear back after all the interviews but i thought we would of by now as the first interview date is 16th which is a week today.

#13

Don’t think it will take long tbh, expect maybe by Friday latest.

#14

Well keep me posted Bob good luck pal seems like a dream graduate job.

#15

Likewise, do post when you hear something.

#16

Found out I have an assessment centre, passed the telephone interview. Good luck to everyone else.

#17

#18

#19

i have my assesment center on friday assuming i dont get another job in the meantime. will anybody else be there on friday?

#20

Has anyone heard back from their assessment day yet? I thought we were meant to hear back by today.
