Graduates and Interns

Recruitment process

Our Graduate and Intern recruitment process differs slightly between each of our business groups. Due to this, recruitment happens at different times for the groups, with some recruitment not finalised until September. Your Graduate Recruiter will inform you of the recruitment process for the group you have applied to.

The safety and wellbeing of our employees and candidates are important to us. We are monitoring the COVID-19 situation and will keep candidates who are progressing in the recruitment up to date on how we will run this year’s recruitment process.

Application opening and closing dates are listed on our website. During application opening dates, apply for the programs using our online application form. You will be required to submit some details about yourself, as well as your resume and cover letter. You’ll receive an auto-generated email to let you know we’ve received your application. 

Your resume will be screened by our Graduate Recruitment Team and successful candidates will receive an invitation to complete a psychometric assessment. 

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.

There is no pass or fail for the psychometric assessment.

You may be asked to complete the assessment from home, or to come into one of our offices to complete it. It typically takes about an hour. If you complete the assessment at home, you may be asked to come into one of our offices to complete a verification assessment.

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.

If you are proceeding to the next round in the recruitment process, you’ll receive a call from one of our recruiters to find out more information about you.

Following this, you may be invited into our offices for a face to face interview.

Following your initial interview, you may be invited to attend further interviews with members of our team. The number of interviews required will depend on the team you are applying for. 

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 from Macquarie, you will be required to complete reference checks and employment screening before you commence.
