Your questions answered

How will I know if you’ve received my application?

You will receive an automated email as soon as we receive your application form.

How flexible are you about academic requirements?

We don’t generally make exceptions to our academic requirements. However, there may be some flexibility in extenuating circumstances. If this is the case, please detail them on the relevant section of the online application form.

Will I be able to highlight any extenuating circumstances in relation to my application?

If you want us to consider something that might affect your application, please make sure you highlight this in the relevant section of the online application form or email us in advance and we will be able to discuss your requirements on a case-by-case basis.

Will I be told how well I performed in the online tests?

You will be notified if you have been successful or unsuccessful in our tests. Unfortunately, due to the volume of applications, we are unable to provide you with feedback until the assessment centre stage of the process. We hope you understand.

I have a disability, how can I ensure the appropriate adjustments are made during the application process?

If you need any adjustments during any part of the online application, online tests or at interview stage, please contact our Early Careers Recruitment team at earlycareers@evelyn.com. We will be very happy to discuss with you how we can make the necessary reasonable adjustments to assist you.

What are the timescales for the recruitment process?

Upon submitting your application, you will automatically receive an email inviting you to complete our online numerical and verbal reasoning tests. We will try to keep you updated on the status of your application, however, please bear with us between September and January as this is a very busy time for us. If you attend one of our assessment centres, you can expect to hear back from us within three working days.

Can I make two different applications for two different areas?

We can only accept one application to any of our programmes in a recruitment season. If you are unsuccessful, you will need to wait until the next September when we re-open applications for the following year.

Do I need to have relevant work experience?

You don’t need to have work experience that is directly relevant to the role you have applied for. However, we recommend that you detail any work experience (paid or unpaid) which you have on your application form.

Do I need to have a business or finance degree to be considered?

No, we welcome applications from candidates with any degree discipline. Whatever your degree discipline, we do expect you to have a clear understanding of the business area you are applying to and of Evelyn Partners as a company.

When do your vacancies open?

The majority of our roles will open at the beginning of September, however we may open up other roles after this time if they become available.

What are the key deadline dates?

We recruit for all of our vacancies on a rolling basis, so we strongly suggest you apply as early as possible to give yourself the best possible chance of being considered for a role. For some roles, where there is a high level of interest for a limited number of positions, we may close applications within a matter of days.

When do your assessment centres take place?

We run assessment centres regularly from early October until the spring of the following year. If you are selected to attend one of our assessment centres, you will be emailed to book onto a suitable date and time slot.

I have had a technical issue during the online application process or in one of the online tests, what can I do?

Please contact our Early Careers Recruitment team immediately at earlycareers@evelyn.com. We will investigate the problem and respond to you as soon as possible.

Do you have to be a recent graduate or school leaver to apply for a trainee programme?

No. As long as you meet the minimum entry requirements detailed in the job description, you are eligible to apply.

Can I apply for a graduate role if I am a postgraduate?

Yes, we welcome applications from those who are studying for a postgraduate qualification.
