How do I prepare for my interview?
Your interview is a chance for us to get to know you, but also for you to get to know us. We recommend you look through our website and familiarise yourself with the firm, read through your CV and be prepared to talk about your background, experience, achievements and challenges, and to ask us a few questions.
You might like to prepare answers to a few questions you think you could encounter and practise in front of a family member or friend. On the day of your interview, try to relax and enjoy the process. Be honest and your authentic self, we are really looking forward to meeting you!
What do I wear to my interview?
For many of you, this may be your first interview. We recommend you dress comfortably but professionally. Our dress code at Russell McVeagh is business casual. Remember you are interviewing for a role in a corporate environment, so ensure that whatever you do decide to wear aligns with that.
What can I expect from the interview?
Our preference is to meet you in person, however, this will depend on health measures in place at the time and any travel restrictions. You will be interviewed by one of our partners and a member of the HR team. We will include names of your interviewers and information on their backgrounds into the email confirming the details of your interview. Your interview will take up to 45 minutes. It will include standard and behavioural questions. You will have an opportunity to ask us your own questions too.
What if I am invited to an interview but the date doesn't work for me?
We will confirm your availability for an interview with you prior to booking it in. We understand that you might have multiple commitments and we will do our best to accommodate you.
What if my application is not successful this time and I would like to receive feedback on it?
We would like to support you as much as we can and are open to providing feedback on your application. Get in touch with the recruitment team at [email protected].
What if my application is not successful this time and I would like to apply again?
We would welcome your application for a role at Russell McVeagh in the future if you choose to apply again.
