they didn’t ask about sky and general news at all, it lasted 20 minutes. Costs, forecasts was mentioned in the video of the girl doing the finance grad scheme and also part of cima really.
I was surprised by the phone interview i prepared A LOT, but in the end it’s one essay question which they ask first, answer it carefully based on the finance team, it took me by surprise so know what the finance team does and how it can help sky add value what they look at on a day to day basis.
Also write down the question so you can look at it. It seemed almost too similar to application question but was phrased differently and that’s where i messed up.
The hr people are on your side, he even looking back gave me tips, (wish i’d taken some of them). You talk they type so try and fit in as many good points as possible. Take ten seconds to collect your thoughts, won’t matter. As for answering make sure you talk the way you would write an essay.
He even said this could take 20 or even 40 minutes, so it’s up to you how much you talk. The more the better as long as its relevant.
The rest is competencies like i said before.
At the end you can ask them questions…and then he asks whether there’s any dates your not available for assessment centre.
So after question 1 really it’s quite straightforward, Good luck.
