SPP recruits on a needs-basis throughout the year which sometimes involves structured recruitment rounds. We’re always looking for opportunities to work with great talent.
SPP utilise a case-study approach to interviewing. The case study is an example of a real business problem and we find it an effective way to assess a candidate's problem-solving and communication skills, as well as their ability to relate to their peers.
It allows applicants an opportunity to demonstrate abilities critical to being a successful consultant, including:
- Handling ambiguity
- Structuring an approach to problem solving
- Strong qualitative and quantitative analytical skills
- Prioritisation of issues
- Listening skills
- Written and verbal communication
- Demonstrating insight, influence and impact
The case study will evaluate the candidate's approach – not whether they get the ‘right’ answer. The case study presents problems for which there are no predetermined answers, and candidates are evaluated on their ability to deal with a problem rather than on a specific answer. Performing well in case studies typically requires a similar set of skills to those used by our consultants on a day-to-day basis.
For our graduate potentials, here are some specific tips.
