Our recruitment process is designed to show what life is like at Newton, as well as get the very best out of you. It could take as little as a week to become part of the team and you’ll benefit from useful development feedback at every stage. Here’s what our process looks like:


    Apply online

    Get to know our business and if you think we could be a good fit, fill in our application form online. The next step involves taking our online maths and data interpretation test.

    • Are you comfortable analysing numbers and quickly digesting complex data? If that’s a yes, then you could be a great addition to the team.

    • That’s why we ask that you complete one short multiple-choice test, which tests both numerical and one data interpretation.

    • You’ll have seven days to complete the tests on our online application portal. The test takes 35 minutes and you’ll need a pen, paper and calculator.

    • We want to help you prepare as much as possible, so we offer practice questions to help you get familiar with the types of questions you’ll be asked.

    • If you have any questions before the test or if you have any technical difficulties, please do get in touch with our team who will be happy to help.

    Make a video

    At this stage, we’ll want to hear a bit more about you through an online video interview. We really want to get to know you and our video interviews are a great way to let your personality shine through.

    • This is the final stage of the online application process and successful candidates can expect to be invited to a face-to-face selection day within a matter of days. 

    • You should complete your video interview within three days of receiving the invite. It will only take around 15 minutes.

    • How you communicate is important to us, as you’ll spend a lot of time interacting with clients across all levels of the business. We want to get a sense of who you really are, so relax and be yourself.

    • We recommend spending some time thinking about how your skills and achievements may be valuable in a career with us. You should also take a good look at our website so you can find out more about what we do.

    Selection day

    Once we’ve seen you on the screen, we’ll want to meet you for a virtual day of exercises – including an interview.

    Read more
    • Our selection days are a chance for you to find out more about us and to spend some time with our people.

    • They’re a chance for us to see if you’re a good fit for Newton. Can you work well with our team, do you have the drive and quick-thinking to find creative solutions to unexpected problems? 

    • We’ll invite you to participate in exercises that allow you to show how your skills and qualities would lead to a successful career at Newton. 

    • You’ll find out more details about the selection day closer to the time, but it is worth being prepared for similar activities to the online application tests, as well as thinking about why you want to join us.

    Final interviews

    We’d like you to get to know us better, so we’ll start with an informal dinner. Plus you’ll have two interviews with some members from our senior team. They’ll be interested in who you are and why you want to work at Newton. And another opportunity to get to know more about us.

    Read more
    • The final stage of our application process starts with a dinner, giving you a chance to meet other applicants and some of our consultants in a less formal setting. You can make connections and ask any questions you still have at this stage. 

    • The following day you’ll have two 45-minute interviews with more senior members of the business.

    • We recommend taking some time to think of any questions you may have about working at Newton and to reflect on the feedback you’ll have received at other stages of the application process

  • If you are applying for the graduate role, we do not require a CV or cover letter. If you are applying for the experienced consultant’s role you will be asked to send in your CV when you apply.
  • Selection days and final interviews take place from October onwards. Whilst you are not in direct competition with other candidates on your selection days or final interviews, we encourage you to apply as early as possible as applications will close once the required number of offers have been made. Additionally, we encourage you to apply early to ensure that you secure a place on a selection day in your preferred location.
  • Yes, if you require adjustments for the online tests there is a place to state this in your initial application. We are happy to work with candidates who require adjustments to make our tests accessible to all.
  • If you need to travel to attend your final interview, we will refund your travel expenses. The process for this will be communicated in the invitation to attend.
  • We really appreciate the commitment made in attending our Selection Day. We provide specific feedback from the assessors on the day in the hope that each candidate will find this useful, regardless of the outcome of the selection day.
  • The night before your final interview you will be invited to attend a dinner with a group of consultants and some other candidates. It is an opportunity to meet some Newton consultants and ask them questions in a more relaxed setting. The following day you will have two 45-minute interviews with senior staff within the company.
  • The selection day is a professional working environment, so we would advise you to dress business smart, although a tie is not necessary.
  • When preparing for the selection day we recommend you brush up on your numerical skills, like the online tests stage. As well as reflecting on your achievements and why you’d like to join Newton. When invited to your selection day you will be sent more information about the different exercises and what to expect.
  • Once you receive an offer you will be sent an offer letter and contract as soon as possible. You will then be assigned a consultant who will be your main point of contact. You will also be invited to attend review days prior to your induction which is a great opportunity to meet other offer holders, Newton employees, and stay up to date with what’s happening at the company.
