Graduate programme 2020 application timeline


Recruitment for the graduate programme is a 4-step process:

  1. Online application and screening – we will assess your application and review whether you have met the eligibility criteria for the programme.
  2. Online psychometric test and video interview – this stage of the process helps us to identify whether you have the key skills and behaviours we look for in our graduates.
  3. Assessment centre – whilst we take you through a range of activities, including a panel interview with managers and a group exercise, you will get the opportunity to take an inside look at our culture and environment and decide whether Treasury is the right fit for you.
  4.  Offer – we aim to make all of our offers within 7 days of the assessment centre!
