    Hi,

    I've checked a couple times, and they do have a couple positions open, but these are all for Northern Ireland. I think they open more positions later in September so just keep checking!!

    Hi,

    Sorry I'm afraid I won't be much help with questions about the assessments or past interview questions as I'm actually looking to apply myself this year! I suggest looking at past forums and see what comes up.

    In regards to online tests, there are free resources online so I suggest typing into google, practice assessment tests and go through the sites that come up. Assessmentday.co.uk has good tests to practice. Also the company sites often have practice questions as examples such as PWC and KPMG so just have a good look around!

    Hope that helps

    I am applying for pwc and deloitte as these are the only firms that do the management consulting program that I want to do, but I'm also thinking of applying to BDO to do risk advisory? No I not applying to uni alongside because the one thing I'm 100% sure of is not going to uni!

    Applied to KPMG Audit School Leaver, EY School Leaver, and PWC School Leaver (Flying Start). Have gotten through to the first stage interview and is on 16th November in KPMG (fast tracked possibly due to me doing the Discovery programme earlier), just completed online tests for EY, and have been invited to Assessment Centre for PWC on the 28th November!

    I was asked mostly about examples. E.g. a time when i worked as part of a team, a time when i couldn't meet up with a deadline and what did i do? Things like. Just have examples ready for each of the competency skills because they asked me questions to assess all the skills both in first and final interview. Also know about the role you are applying for and about KPMG. Read the annual report it should help you but you dont have to cram it, just pick out some information that interest you. I was also asked what my career aspirations was in the next 10 years or so. Finally for the intray excercise just practice doing timed tests. I struggled in this bit and its mostly because of the limited time. You have to plan a project given certain information and data. This is all i can remember because i did mine last year but i hope it helps.
    Goodluck

    Hi,

    I received an email from pwc just over 1 week ago saying that I passed the assessment centre and they will be in contact to book an interview date
    shortly but I haven't heard anything back yet. Does anyone have any ideas of when I should email them?

    thx

    Hi!
    I did the PwC assessment centre, but was unsuccessful in getting through to the next round. Also, I am through to the final interview for EY and I have my Deloitte assessment centre on Tuesday. Does anyone have any advice? I'm also happy to share my experiences about EY and PwC.
