- What is the Management Trainee recruitment process like?
If your application is shortlisted to be considered for Management Trainee, a recruiter will contact you to conduct a short telephone interview. At this point, the recruiter is assessing your communication skills and whether you have a confident, well developed personality so as to determine whether you should be shortlisted for the next level of the recruitment process.
If you are successful at the phone interview, you will be contacted shortly and requested to attend a one day assessment center where you will be put through a series of tasks to ascertain whether you have the required competencies. Successful candidates, on a subsequent day face a psychometric assessment test and a standardized competency based interview with senior managers of the Group. Candidates shortlisted from this interview face a final interview with the CEO.
- Will I be notified if I am not selected?
Due to the large volume of applications we receive, we are unable to inform you at the point of receiving your application whether you have been shortlisted. However, all applicants who have sat for tests/interviews will be notified by email if you have not been successful.
- How long will the recruitment process take?
It varies depending on the role and the number of qualified candidates who have applied for the position. If a large number of suitable candidates have submitted their applications, we would need to interview each of them before finalizing on the shortlisted candidates. Therefore, informing you whether you have been selected for the position/the next round of interviews may take a little time.
