    All I can say is that I did a week long work experience placement there which was truly fantastic. Everyone was really friendly, yet at the same time clearly a lot of work was being done. Whilst I was there, there were people doing longer lengths of time there. I don't think a year, but certainly a couple of months. I think you could probably pick up some really good contacts from there.

    I believe they have probably sent out all interviews and rejections today.

    I have no idea, looking at the sample test they have sent us it seems really easy but it can't be that simple.

    Yeh i emailed them asking that and they confirmed it was just tests. Here is their reply to me:

    Dear Paddy

    The first stage is purely testing - if you pass these tests you will be then invited to the final stage which will involve an interview and group exercise.

    Kind regards

    I thought the same thing. Also thought it was a bit strange to invite everyone up and offer to pay travel expenses for something that could be done online, Deloitte-style.

    Anyone know any other girls that applied? It's looking pretty male dominated at the moment...
