From showing potential to making an impact. Make yours count.
Be prepared, be yourself
We look at applications on a first-come, first-served basis, so it's important to apply early as our vacancies fill quickly. Preparation is everything. Do your research. Be honest. But just as importantly, be yourself.
We want to get the best out of you and will give you plenty of opportunity to demonstrate your potential throughout our selection process.
If you're ready to join us on our exciting global journey, we're ready to hear from you.
There are four stages to our application process:
- Apply with CV and Application Form
- Online test
- Telephone Interview
- Assessment Centre
More information about each stage of the process can be found below.
CV & online application
If you’re serious about a role with us, it’s worth taking the time at this stage to get your CV and application right.
- Tailor your CV to the role you have applied for.
- Like any prospective employer we're interested to hear about the unique qualities you can bring to our organisation.
- We want to understand what it is about us and our programme that motivated you to apply.
With on-line tests, the key thing is to practise them first. This will help you to feel comfortable with the format of the questions so that you have the best chance of doing well. There are several practice sites available, such as those offered by Cut-e Assessment Solutions, and you can ask your careers service for help or search online for some extra practice examples.
When doing the test for real, it is always best to choose a quiet location where you won’t be disturbed.
When it comes to the telephone interview, this is your chance to have a conversation with us and to re-affirm your motivation for applying.
Remind yourself what it is that attracts you to Aberdeen Standard Investments and how you hope to contribute towards our ambition of being a world class investments company.
