Standard Chartered International Graduate Program Online Case Study

6.What is your application process?

The first step in our online application process is a short application form. After this form you will be invited to take our online Strengths Assessment, which is designed to help you, and us, get a sense of what you are great at. As soon as you complete this assessment you will receive your own ‘Superpower Report’ over email. This will tell you what the assessment tells us about your strengths.

To be great at the types of roles we offer, we are on the lookout for people with a certain combination of strengths. Everyone who progresses past the Strengths Assessment will be invited to take our Abstract and Numerical tests.

Again, we will email you immediately with a report fully describing your results.

Finally, for all those who progress beyond ability testing, the last online step is a strengths based video interview. This is our first chance to meet you properly and ask you questions about how you like to work.

You're doing big business.
