Rothschild & Co Tests

Rothschild & Co is one of the oldest private wealth and investment companies in the world. It has been run by the Rothschild family for over 200 years, and offers services in asset and wealth management, global advisory, and merchant banking.

Careers at Rothschild & Co

Operating in 40 countries, Rothschild & Co has around 3,500 employees. The company upholds the values of the Rothschild family and its motto: concordia, integritas, industria (unity, integrity, industry).

When it comes to its employees, Rothschild & Co is looking for individuals who appreciate the heritage and global network they are part of and will work to take the company into the future. It also seeks people who are personally ambitious and innovative in their approach.

Rothschild & Co Application Process

  1. 1
    Online Application
  2. 2
    Telephone Interview
  3. 3
    Aptitude Tests
  4. 4
    Final Interviews

For both experienced professionals and those applying for the graduate schemes, the application process looks very similar, and follows the structure above.

As jobs at Rothschild & Co are highly sought after, you are only allowed to apply for two roles per location each year, which means that you should consider your applications carefully.

Online application

You can search for all of the vacancies at Rothschild & Co, and submit an online application, via its careers website. The application consists of your CV and a cover letter, which should highlight your relevant skills and experience. For the graduate scheme, the minimum academic requirement is 340 UCAS points or a 2:1 degree equivalent.

Rothschild & Co lists the following as key qualities it seeks in a candidate:

  • Good communication skills
  • Drive and ambition
  • Sound judgement
  • Creativity
  • Execution excellence
  • Presence
  • Teamwork
  • Numeracy

It is a good idea to cover as many of these key points as possible in your application, to make it immediately clear to the hiring manager that you understand the expectations of the company and that you are what they are looking for.

The ideal application will be short, clear, and concise. Use bullet points to keep it simple and aim to have your CV fit on one page (two is the maximum permitted). Remember to push your achievements and explain any career/academic gaps.

Screening phone interview

If your online application is successful, you will be contacted by someone from HR and asked to do a telephone interview. This will be a mix of personal and technical questions to assess your compatibility with the role and the company.

You should familiarise yourself with Rothschild & Co’s history, recent business transactions, and core values, to show why you want to work for them and they might want to work with you.

Rothschild numerical reasoning tests

Rothschild & Co puts strong numeracy skills as one of its core requirements for employees, which should come as no surprise in the finance industry.

Numerical reasoning tests differ from standard maths tests because they assess your ability to analyse and interpret numerical data. This is usually presented in a way which is similar to the actual work you will be doing, so that your employer can get a sense of how you will perform in the role.

Rothschild & Co uses SHL numerical reasoning tests, which are tailored to Rothschild’s specifications and tend to be 20 to 25 minutes long. They focus on statistical, graphical, and financial data interpretation, testing the key workplace skills that Rothschild & Co looks for.

It is important to practice numerical reasoning tests before you take your real assessment, so that you can work on your skills and improve your score as much as possible. The aptitude tests are often used as a determiner between stages or similar candidates, so your chances of advancing in the process is often reliant on how well you do here.

Rothschild mechanical reasoning tests

Depending on the position you apply for, you may be asked to complete a mechanical reasoning test. These assess your ability to put theoretical mechanical principles into practice and show your level of technical knowledge.

Typically, these tests are presented as a series of images depicting a mechanical scenario or problem and ask you to find the right solution. They are tailored to the position and level of skill expected from the job, so make sure that you are very familiar with the job specifications and required skills.

You can and should practice mechanical reasoning tests to become familiar with their structure and the type of questions asked. Rothschild & Co use mechanical reasoning tests from SHL, which produces specialised tests based on the company’s requirements.

The tests were well suited to the job that I’ve applied for. They are easy to do and loads of them.

Final interviews

The final stage of the application process is the in-person interviews. Many people have two or three interviews back-to-back, with multiple representatives from the company and the division that they will be working in.

This is done to ensure that you have both the professional and technical experience, and the cultural knowledge and fit for the company. Some of the most popular non-technical questions asked include:

  • What do you think makes Rothschild & Co different from other companies in the industry?
  • Why do you want to work for Rothschild & Co?
  • How would your friends describe you?
  • What are your weaknesses and/or strengths?

Therefore, it’s important to research the company and be up-to-date on both its business dealings and company values. Along with its motto, Rothschild & Co promotes its leading values as being:

  • Thoughtful: Being a trusted advisor to your clients, working with the global network to provide strategic, considered, and long-term focused solutions.
  • Creative: Appreciate that you are part of a 200-year legacy built on taking risks, being innovative, and never limiting your imagination when facing new challenges.
  • Principled: Integrity and empathy are the basis for long-term relationships with clients and, in turn, the success of the business.
