Video interview

Video interviews are now common in the hiring process, especially for larger companies like Schroders. They are a bit different to the usual interview in that they are not live: you are given questions, then record your answers in your own time using the Aon Cut-E platform.

These are then reviewed by hiring managers once submitted.

The interview consists of 6–8 questions and you are given 2 minutes to read and assess each question, then another 2 minutes for each answer.

This means the interviews tend to be around 25–40 minutes long – plus any more time taken to practice – so make sure you give yourself enough time to be relaxed and uninterrupted.

Typically, the questions are a mix of firm-specific, business, and competency questions, so research both Schroders and general information about the sector that you’re applying for.

Schroders application tips remind you to still treat this like a face-to-face interview. Some of the things to be mindful of are:

  • Dress appropriately – You might not be leaving the house, but you should put effort into looking professional.

  • Environment – Is there good lighting? Is there background noise? What else can be seen around you? Be mindful of what else is going on when you record your answers, as you want the managers to be able to hear and see you well without distractions.

  • Engagement – It can feel awkward and uncomfortable, but try to relax and act natural in front of the camera. They want to get a feel for you and your personality, so let it shine through as you talk. Also, remember to talk to the camera and not look at yourself on the screen.

  • Preparation – There is an opportunity to do practice questions before recording your real answers, so take advantage of this. It’s a chance to address any technical issues such as sound and lighting, get a sense of the time restriction given, and feel a bit more relaxed.

Assessment centre

The assessment centre is the final stage for trainees, apprenticeships and internships, and represents your last chance to impress the hiring managers. The best tip for success at an assessment centre is to be prepared. Do your reading and come ready to show your passion for both Schroders and the industry as a whole.

You will be expected to do an interview with HR and a senior manager, where they will ask you mostly competency-based questions.

There will also be a task section. Although these differ depending on which role you have applied for, it will most likely be a practical task (e.g. coding), a group activity, or a presentation on a case study.

These tasks assess how you work in a team, perform under pressure, and generally undertake tasks similar to the ones you will do when actually working.

It is also an opportunity to meet with people currently in the role you’re applying for, as well as more senior staff, so come with questions.

The training schemes at Schroders are designed to invest in young people with potential; they want to see your ambition and enthusiasm for the career path.

Final interview

Lastly, those applying for the graduate scheme will be asked to do a face-to-face interview. This is a traditional interview where you will meet with senior members of staff in the area that you are applying for.

You will most likely be faced with a mix of questions about your skills, experience and personal details, ensuring that you have both the professional competency and are the right fit for the team.

Interviews can be stressful, but by this stage you have proven yourself one of the top candidates. Make sure to have a look at some interview preparation tips and be confident in your abilities.
