Application & Selection
Our selection process is designed to do two things; help us to see your full potential and what you are capable of, and help you to find out what kind of business ENGIE is.
Our process consists of three main stages:
- An online application
You’ll need to select the scheme that you are interests and fill in the online application form, submitting your CV and a cover letter. First impressions count, so make it count! Depending on the scheme you have applied for, you may be invited to complete an online numerical or verbal reasoning test.
If we like your application form we will invite you to take part in our first round interview where we will focus on your motivations for joining ENGIE and our core competencies
- Assessment Centre
Those who pass the interview round will be invited to an assessment centre, which includes a variety of interactive group and individual activities.
We will help you prepare for these so that you have the best change of impressing us. If you’re not successful at this stage, we will give you feedback to help you improve and as an appreciation of the time you have given us.
Interview Top Tips
The assessment process can be tricky, so we’ve put together some top tips to help you prepare. Make sure you watch our video on what we’re looking for too – it contains some handy hints from our current graduates and managers.
- Explore ENGIE
Make sure you spend some time getting to know ENGIE and how we work as a business as we’ll be looking to understand why you want to work for us and why you’re passionate about your chosen business area. Spend some time getting to know our products and services, reading recent press releases and understanding the company values that will be central to our selection process.
- Compare your skills and qualifications to the job requirements
At ENGIE, it doesn’t matter who you are or what you’ve studied; we’re looking for people who share our vision and values. We recommend giving some thought to about the role you have applied for and the behaviours that are important to us, and thinking about the knowledge, skills and abilities that you can bring to the role.
- Prepare responses
Our interviews involve a combination of resume-based, motivational and competency based questions. We’d encourage you to practise telling your story in the best possible way. However, whilst we advocate preparation, we’re also keen to get to know the real you, so don’t be afraid to show a little personality where you can too.
- Pay attention to non-verbal communication
Be mindful that non-verbal communication speaks volumes. It’s worth paying attention to your posture, eye contact and to smile as these all help to project a positive image.
