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.
The tests were well suited to the job that I’ve applied for. They are easy to do and loads of them.Sophie used Practice Aptitude Tests to help pass her aptitude tests for Deloitte. Start your success story
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.
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.
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.
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.
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:
The online application process is the same for both engineering and corporate roles, although the required knowledge, skills, and competencies vary.
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.
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.
