If you're thinking of applying to Arup then we can tell you all about their interview process. Over the years, many students have asked TARGETjobs questions about succeeding at the Arup UK graduate recruitment process – whether at careers events or via social media. So we spoke to Aman Rai, graduate recruitment adviser at Arup, to get answers to your most frequently asked questions about applying to the firm. Read here to find out what questions they’re likely to bring up.

If you have decided to apply for a graduate position with BAM then we can tell you all about the interview process. The graduate recruitment process at BAM Construct UK is pretty simple: if you are successful at the application stage, you will usually be asked to participate in a telephone ‘screening’ interview and attend up to two face-to-face interviews. 

Members of the graduate recruitment team usually conduct the telephone interview. They will also sit in on at least one of your face-to-face interviews, which are usually led by senior managers in the region or sector you’d be working in. Read more on this topic here.

This article is for all the law students - Once you’ve submitted your targeted and proofread training contract applications before the July deadlines (having read all our handy applications advice on targetjobslaw.co.uk, of course), you’ll hopefully  be invited along to a law firm’s assessment centre.
