Tailor your application to the role you’re applying for. While lots of banks ask similar questions, they are rarely exactly the same – never copy and paste from another application form.
Spend time on the competency-based questions – this is your opportunity to demonstrate your interest and personal investment in your application.
Pay attention to English grammar and punctuation, and maintain a formal and professional writing style at all times. Attention to detail is a fundamental part of what we do – a poorly completed form will suggest you lack this quality, or think it unimportant.
Be honest, particularly when outlining your language ability and technical skills. If not, you are likely to be caught out at interview.
We look for candidates who demonstrate teamwork, leadership and a sense of community. If you are involved in student organisations on your campus and in your local community, include these activities in your application.
We also look for candidates with a genuine interest in the markets. Make sure to include any experience you’ve gained (practical or learning) which demonstrate this.
