IMI was formerly known as Imperial Metal Industries, and is now a British-based engineering company that produces parts for industries like aerospace and hospitals. Bespoke technology on an international scale needs the very best in engineering and corporate talent, so the application process for roles at IMI is thorough.

Prepare yourself for leading employers

IMI video interview

In the video interview, you will be asked a number of questions that you will need to record a response to.

The questions asked in the video interview will be about why you want to work at IMI, why you have chosen the role you are looking for, and some more details about your experience and education.

For success in the video interview, take time before you record to think through what you want to say, and try to provide examples where you can. When asked about your motivation, use your research about the role, the company, and the wider industry to highlight why you have applied for this role and how you think it will help you reach your personal and professional goals.

IMI assessment centre

In the assessment centre, you will attend a location with other candidates; sometimes those who have applied for other roles. You will be expected to take part in a number of activities that will allow you to be assessed in different ways.

IMI group exercise

In the group exercise, you might be asked to complete an activity or a work-based project. During this time you will be assessed on your teamwork, communication, listening skills and leadership.

IMI face-to-face interview

In the face to face interview you are likely to get questions on your motivation to work at IMI, as well as competency-based questions that are looking to ensure that you have the required soft skills.

In this interview, you will need to provide examples of your experience that demonstrate competencies, and in a similar way to the video interview, you can use your research into the role and the company to answer the motivational questions.

IMI work-based task

Usually based on a case study, this is an individual exercise where you will be provided with some information and need to find a solution, which you will present to the group.

IMI application process (corporate)

For corporate graduate scheme applications, the process is slightly different:

Online corporate application

The online application process is the same for both engineering and corporate roles, although the required knowledge, skills, and competencies vary.

Interactive assessment

The interactive assessment is taken online and in your own time, where a number of work-based scenarios are presented and you will have to decide on the most appropriate course of action to take.

Following this situational judgement test, you will have a short video interview to complete, which is broadly similar to the one taken by those looking to follow an engineering career path.

Final assessment

In the final assessment, you will visit the site where you have applied to work to take part in a face-to-face interview.

You are likely to be asked questions about your education, qualifications and experience as demonstrated in your application form. You might be asked about your motivations to work for IMI.

The interviewer will also ask questions about your competencies and you will need to provide examples.

Sample IMI Tests question Test your knowledge!

Based on the passage, what can be inferred about the impact of enhanced product durability on the industry? 'Introducing products with extended lifespans and resilience to environmental stresses can significantly reduce operational costs. In industries such as aerospace and healthcare, technological dependability is paramount. Enhanced durability can lead to fewer maintenance intervals and higher confidence in performance under critical conditions.'

  • Companies are likely to experience increased operational costs due to product failures.
  • Durability has a negligible effect on the confidence in product performance.
  • Extended durability may lead to reduced maintenance costs over time.
  • Healthcare and aerospace industries prefer products with shorter lifespans for more frequent upgrades.

A company is developing a new aircraft part that costs $200 per unit to produce. The research and development costs were $2 million. If the company wants to make a profit of $500,000 from the first batch, how many units must they sell, assuming the selling price is double the production cost?

  • 7,500 units
  • 12,500 units
  • 15,000 units
  • 20,000 units

If a hospital orders 150 units of a bespoke monitoring device and 20% of the units have a specialized feature that costs an additional $50 per unit, what is the total additional cost for those units with the specialized feature?

  • $1,500
  • $7,500
  • $15,000
  • $750

An aerospace company has reduced the weight of a component from 5 kg to 4 kg, resulting in a 5% fuel efficiency increase per plane, per flight. If a plane uses 10,000 kg of fuel per flight, how much fuel will be saved on a flight thanks to the reduction in the component's weight?

  • 500 kg
  • 250 kg
  • 50 kg
  • 20 kg

After reading the following passage, which conclusion about the new engineering technology is correct? 'The new system is designed to operate in harsh environmental conditions. It can sustain temperatures ranging from -50 degrees Celsius to +150 degrees Celsius. Its improved durability increases its lifespan by approximately 20% compared to previous models.

  • The system's operational range is from -100 to +200 degrees Celsius.
  • The system can withstand extreme temperatures that are beneficial for a range of climates.
  • The new system will reduce maintenance needs by 20%.
  • Previous models had a longer lifespan due to their superior alloy composition.
