SPP recruits on a needs-basis throughout the year which sometimes involves structured recruitment rounds. We’re always looking for opportunities to work with great talent.

SPP utilise a case-study approach to interviewing. The case study is an example of a real business problem and we find it an effective way to assess a candidate's problem-solving and communication skills, as well as their ability to relate to their peers.

It allows applicants an opportunity to demonstrate abilities critical to being a successful consultant, including:

  • Handling ambiguity
  • Structuring an approach to problem solving
  • Strong qualitative and quantitative analytical skills
  • Prioritisation of issues
  • Listening skills
  • Presence
  • Written and verbal communication
  • Demonstrating insight, influence and impact

The case study will evaluate the candidate's approach – not whether they get the ‘right’ answer. The case study presents problems for which there are no predetermined answers, and candidates are evaluated on their ability to deal with a problem rather than on a specific answer. Performing well in case studies typically requires a similar set of skills to those used by our consultants on a day-to-day basis.

For our graduate potentials, here are some specific tips.
