"For graduate applicants there's a day-long assessment program at the company HQ. This includes written technical and aptitude tests as well as logical puzzles and group/team assignments to be undertaken."Graduate, Dublin
"The application process was quite detailed and very well organised. It was very enjoyable and made what can be quite an intense experience an informative and fun day."Graduate, Dublin
"The interview comprised of an assessment day which had an interview, competency based test and a few role playing activities. If you got offered a job you were sent to a three-week intensive training course in South Africa which tests were carried out and you had to pass to continue on to be a full-time member of staff."Graduate, Belfast
"For a graduate assessment day you will be assessed for a full day. The day enables you to really display your talents and skills easier than just a straightforward interview. You will need to sit a skills assessment exam. This is a multiple choice exam which help determines your technical ability. Then there is some team work activities that help determine how you operate within a team. Finally there will be an interview at the end of the day which will help answer some other questions about you and your ambitions and motivations."Midlevel, Dublin
