    Hey has anyone else applied here? I have my interview on Tuesday and I have no idea what I'm doing.... Starting to panic! Especially because I also have exams next week and I should be revising.

    Anyways, if anyone is doing it, what are you doing to prepare? I'm not sure if this will get any responses as this forum is usually dead.

    The interview was fine I quite enjoyed it! My interviewer was really nice. He didn't really ask me any competency based questions we were more of having a discussion just about finance and stuff. I have my assessment centre tomorrow and I have to prepare a 20 minute presentation and I'm starting to freak out because I haven't planned ANYTHING yet and I don't know what to do.

    Thanks I think it went okay-ish but it was hard to tell. I'm kinda panicked because my phone isn't working properly so I probably won't get their call and I haven't got a way of telling them rn that my phone isn't working. I'm planning on using my landline on Monday and ringing the office to tell them.... I hope that's ok lol.

    How did you find the tests?

    I too just wore a dress and a black cardigan and I was told I didn't dress smart enough and should've worn a jacket so you might want to get that jacket. Good luck to you.

    Hey! I have an AC coming up with BDO; wondering if you could give me some tips? What sort of questions were you asked after the presentation? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you
