What is the selection process?

At SMS, we have a five stage recruitment process that gives us an insight into the person you are – and also gives you a greater understanding of the work we undertake and the culture that defines who we are. We believe that recruitment is a two way process and is as much about you choosing us as it is about us choosing you.

The stages of our recruitment process are as follows:

  • Application Screening
  • Cognitive testing
  • Video screening
  • Assessment Centre
  • Final Interview

How should I prepare for the selection process?

We encourage you to review our website and familiarise yourself with SMS, including what we do and which practice you would most like to join. Throughout the process, but especially at the Assessment Centre stage, it is important that you remember to be yourself and to demonstrate why you’re excited about the opportunity to work for SMS. We will be looking for professionalism in the way you present yourself, your ability to work as a member of a team and strong communication skills.

It is also important that you have reviewed your application and CV details and are prepared to talk about your experiences; especially those which best illustrate your strengths.

Will there be any on the job training/support?

Your development will start on day one, when you will participate in our two week graduate specific induction and training period. This will be the start of your participation in our 18 month 'Young Professionals Program'. This initial induction period will help you to settle in to your first professional role. You will learn about our Company and the work that we do, meet with lots of different people and also learn what it takes to be a consultant. As a Graduate you're not expected to know your job inside-out on your first day. Supporting you will be your Practice/Site Leader who acts as a coach and mentor.

The focus of your initial training in our Young Professionals Program will be on developing general consulting skills and competencies that will supplement your on-the- job learning from experts in the field. We want you to experience working on a client project soon after your career journey starts with us so that you can learn from practical experience and from our highly experienced team.

How will I know if I have been successful?

We will notify everyone who applies to the graduate program, the outcome of their application via phone or email throughout each stage of the selection process.
