Our application process is designed for us to get to know you and for you to find out more about us. Your CV and covering letter will be carefully reviewed and we select a few stand-out candidates for a 1st stage interview where we will assess your skills, experience and your motivation for a career at GJE. There is usually a short test relevant to the position.
If you are successful, you will be invited back to a final stage which will consist of an interview with a partner, a technical test (depending on the role), and lunch with a couple of team members, which gives you the chance to ask questions in an informal setting.
While applications for graduate roles are on-going, usually we begin recruiting in the autumn, so we advise you to apply as soon as possible through our vacancies page.
2019 IT & Engineering Graduates – the application process is now closed. For the 2020 intake, applications will re-open in Autumn/ Winter 2019.
2019 Chemistry & Life Sciences Graduates – we are accepting applications for graduates with a Biotech specialism. See our vacancies page to apply. Applications for Chemistry are now closed. For the 2020 intake, applications will re-open in the winter.
For any queries regarding graduate recruitment, please contact Maria Volkova on firstname.lastname@example.org
How to stand out
Whilst academic achievements and technical knowledge are important, we also look for graduates who demonstrate key competencies such as the ability to articulate ideas accurately and concisely, an analytical mind, drive and ambition, and attention to detail. Your CV should demonstrate these skills by reference to your curricular and extra-curricular activities, and any work experience. See below for a few tips you should remember when submitting your application:
Include a covering letter
Tell us why you think this is the role for you and what you can bring to this role. Remember to be concise to get your key points across
Tell us your key achievements
We value diversity, so whether you are an avid marathon runner or a chess champion, we want to know why you stand out from the crowd
Let us know what additional languages you can speak
We have an international client base, so it is an added advantage if you are able to speak another language
Be sure to include all qualifications and results on your CV, even if they don’t seem relevant to the role (we like to see everything from GCSEs upwards).
