Are you wondering about the video interview or the AC?
The video interview!

Have you sat for it? Would you be able to give me an idea on what the format is like?

The video interview consisted of 4 or 5 questions, can’t remember them as I sat it over a month ago but they all focused on strength based answers rather than competency based. They give you scenarios and ask how you would respond if you were the person dealing with it for all of the questions, except the first one which asked what I liked to do in my spare time. Hope this helps and good luck with it

Ah thank you so much!

And good luck! What did you apply for?

Also, were there any numerical questions or case studies in the interview?
And how long did you get to prepare for each question and how long do you get to speak for each question?

Were you able to record your answers more than once?

I applied for external auditing. There were no calculations required in the interview, and honestly I can't remember if there were any case studies. I know they gave a couple of mini scenarios to which I had to answer questions. I think it varied for each question as well, but again can't fully remember as I did quite a few video interviews around the same time! There were no opportunities to re-record answers unfortunately.

I haven't heard back from them. I done the video interview on 23rd December. I've heard they have a backlog of video interviews to catch up on though!

Thank you!

I took the video interview on the 24th December!
Yes, I applied for the London office, but from what Ive heard, theres a LONG QUE, for those who applied for the London office. So, I called up RSM and told them that if it speeds up the process, I'm happy to move to a different location. So i switched to Reading office..

I think the best thing to do is call the graduate office in Birmingham and ask for an update!

Haven't booked an AC, but I know that theres a 1st Feb AC in Reading coming up and they've said that once they've confirmed that date, they will send me an invite!

Does anyone have any indication of a salary and progression for the graduate scheme?
Absolutely nowhere online.
I’ve recently completed a manager interview for the role of an Internal Auditor and waiting for results.

Starting salary is around £21k for a regional office. I beleive it only goes up around 1-2k in your second year
