Expect hard work, but not ridiculous hours

We’ll give you sensible hours, with a reasonable amount of flexibility.

Step out the office when you need to

We have countless cinemas, theatres, castles, caves and markets. And the pubs and clubs are as plentiful as you’d expect from a student city.

Its central London location comes with all the cultural and industrial hotspots you could ever need. Our building even has a rooftop running track.

Application Process

Step 1

1. Get the ball rolling

Choose the role that’s right for you. Click ‘apply’, attach your CV and answer a couple of basic application questions.

Step 2

2. Show us what you bring to the table

Take an assessment online. This is your chance to show us how well you can: - Deal with different situations - Use numbers and information to make good decisions - Code (if that’s part of the job).

Step 3

3. Fire up your webcam and say hi

Answer the questions we give either over video or in person. Some of them will be about why you want the job. Some will be technical questions. Apply to be an analyst, and you’ll do a case study with one of our Analysts over video too.

Step 4

4. Come and meet us in person

Come to our office and we’ll set you several tasks, that could include things like:

  • Case studies – to test your problem solving and business instincts.
  • Presentations - how well can you research and communicate ideas?
  • Group tasks – to make sure you work collaboratively
  • Coding tests – if you apply to our Software Academy, you’ll complete a code pairing exercise alongside one of our developers to see how you problem solve and code in a live environment.

We know this makes it sound like The Apprentice, but it’s far less intimidating – friendlier people, fewer cameras and more biscuits. So just be yourself, come well prepared and you’ll probably find it fun.

Step 5

5. Your final interview

Last interview, we promise. Depending on the role you’ve applied for, we may invite you in for a final interview to get to know you a bit better before we make our final decision.

Step 6

6. ‘Yay’ or ‘Nay’

You’ll get plenty of support from your recruiter to help you prepare for each stage and after each step, we’ll be in touch within a couple of days. If it’s bad news, we won’t just say ‘no thanks’ – we’ll be happy to give you feedback to explain why we’re not asking you back. We’ll tell you where you did well and where you could do better. If it’s good news, we’ll tell you everything you need to know for the next stage. Once you’ve run out of stages, it’ll be a ‘congratulations, see you soon’.
