REQUIREMENTS

We are looking to recruit candidates from all universities and degree disciplines. Our academic requirements are AAB at A-Level or equivalent and a 2:1 degree (obtained or predicted). We use Rare’s contextualised recruitment system enabling us to measure an individual’s performance against the average grades of their school. We review all application forms holistically, which means if you fall slightly short of our academic requirements but demonstrate great potential, you will still be considered.

Hints and Tips

Prepare well

Research Weil and the type of work we do. The interviewer is sure to ask you why you want to work for us, so have a good answer ready.

Stay in the know

Make sure you keep up to date with the latest news. We may ask you about current trends within our industries - or significant deals that Weil is, or has recently been, involved in.

Smile and relax

Try not to worry too much about your interview. It’s an opportunity to find out if we’re a good match for each other. So the best advice is just to be yourself.

Ask questions

Your interviewers will expect you to ask a question or two, so make sure you are prepared in advance with something relevant or topical.
