Just had my partner call, I got the job.
In terms of the application form to offer, the majority of the issues are already covered in the Wiki.
Some things you may like to add are:
In the Group exercise make sure you read the whole of the booklet, you ONLY get those 10 minutes (there is too much discussion to be done in the remaining time) and lucky for us one person made it to the end in our group (there’s a couple of really important considerations on those last couple of pages) and brought the issue up. For KPMG one of the core competencies is task management, so if nobody finishes it and brings up these points I can see it having an impact on the performance of the group as a whole.
In terms of applying for UK/Germany Audit, which might be an interesting addition to the Wiki, the last process after the AC (assuming it goes OK) around a week later, someone from HR in Germany will ring you up and have a 10-15 minute chat with you. It really was a chat, we discussed how she lived up the road from me in Berlin and maybe we should go for a coffee some time. Then we talked a bit about how I’d learned German and what cities in Germany I know well and such like. Then she asked me if I wanted to know anything, so I asked a couple of questions related to tax/health insurance complications because I am not exempt from paying German Health Insurance having lived there more than 3 years already (for the first year a UK Citizen who has paid NI in previous years is paid for by the NHS).
Anyway, having discussed all that then she said someone would be in contact and like I say the partner rang me up today (around 24 hours later)
Good luck to everyone else, and if anyone applies for UK/Germany and wants to ask anything from this long term expat to Germany about working in Germany then I’m happy to discuss!
