A recruiter will be in touch to ask you some questions to get a better understanding of your experience and overall suitability for the position. You will be contacted for a phone interview between 2-5 business days after your initial application and it will generally take between 5-10 minutes.
If you proceed to the next stage in the recruitment process, you’ll be invited to an interview with a few members of our team. Most interviews are currently being conducted via our video conferencing platform, Zoom. If you’re proceeding to this stage, your recruiter will send you further information for how to access the platform and what to expect from your interview. You’ll likely be asked about your experience and why you’d like to join the Macquarie team. You’ll also be given the opportunity to ask any questions that you may have.
The next stage of the process is typically a psychometric assessment, a standard and scientific method used to measure individuals’ cognitive ability and behavioural style. The information generated from this assessment, in combination with the other information gathered during the selection process, will be used to assist us in ensuring we have a comprehensive view of the match between you and the position you have applied for. We do these assessments to make sure we have a well-rounded picture of you and to assist in determining if we are a good fit for each other. If you’re the successful candidate, we also use the results to help with your onboarding and ensuring we can help you develop and grow in the right areas.
We’re all different and approach problems in our own unique way so to help us get an understanding of how you approach problems; where your strengths are and how they match the role you have applied for. There is no pass or fail for the psychometric assessment. You will be asked to complete the assessment from home and it typically takes about an hour. Your recruiter will send you further information about the psychometric assessment and a link to practice assessments which will help you familiarise yourself with the nature of the assessment. Please note that the practice assessment sent by your recruiter is the only authentic practice assessment for Macquarie.
Following your assessment, if you’re progressing to the next stage, you’ll be invited to attend a second interview with different members of the Macquarie team.
After your final interview, your recruiter will give you an estimated timeframe of when you will be contacted regarding feedback from your interview. If you receive an offer, your recruiter will call you and send the relevant documents via DocuSign. Please note that offers are subject to reference checks and employment screening (see step 6).
If you’re successful in joining our team, you’ll receive an onboarding pack ahead of your start date. We’ll also arrange for you to meet some of your new colleagues in a virtual networking event. You’ll be sent your Macquarie laptop and any other technology that you need ahead of your first day.
Whether you’ll be joining us in the office or remotely, your first day will be working from home. You’ll receive a call from our technology team to get everything set up and you’ll meet with your manager to properly welcome you to the team and Macquarie. You’ll also have some training to complete.
