This refers to a pre-recorded video interview, hosted by a third-party digital recruitment platform. After passing the previous stages, applicants will be sent a link to join this interview at their own convenience.
Introductions and a series of three to five questions are pre-recorded by DLG for all candidates. The task is to answer these in a professional manner and attempt to share your experience, motivation and career ambition within the time limit of about one minute.
The interview platform normally allows candidates a maximum of three attempts to record each answer before submission. As such, it’s worth researching DLG thoroughly in advance and having your CV to hand to ensure the clearest and most concise responses possible.
The final hurdle is an assessment centre. This often lasts a full work day, with a business case study exercise, a variety of group activities and a final face-to-face interview. Occasionally, DLG also requests these finalists to re-attempt the critical reasoning test to ensure validity and integrity of results.
Each attendee is required to bring documents like their degree certificate or right to work to the assessment centre;specific details for each candidate of what to prepare are sent out via email prior to the day itself.
Again, in-depth research of the company, its culture and the industry are necessary to succeed in business case study tasks, while your interpersonal skills and confidence are key to acing the group activities and final interview.
Finally, having some good questions to ask about the role and the business will be useful, as this is a valuable opportunity to determine whether DLG is the right step for your career goals.
