We are very interested to hear from people who embody the Plural philosophy. We look for the intellectual curiosity that creates sector experts, the relentless analytical drive that gets to the heart of a question (and still goes further), the empathy that promotes collaboration and the desire to take intiative and think independently. In return, we offer:

  • A dynamic, entrepreneurial environment
  • Rapid development
  • Early client exposure and responsibility
  • Continuous learning

HOW DO YOU SOLVE PROBLEMS?

We pose a simple question.

We work with you to get to the answer, it is not a trick and we are not setting you up to fail. We want to understand how you think, your approach to a problem, how do you navigate an unfamiliar situation to get to an answer, and how to you present and justify your findings.

What questions do you have?

The working environment, the company culture and philosophy, do we have a pool table (spoiler: no), career progression.

No question is a bad question (except about pool tables). We value your curiosity, your creative thinking and your interests. Be yourself, don’t try and ask the “intellectual” question because you think it is the right thing to do.

Interview tips

Listen to the interviewer and ask questions.
We pose a simple question.  Ask lots of questions and show how you’re approaching the challenge. You will get additional data and hints along the way, and often there are assumptions to be made.  Make notes so you don’t forget anything.

Don’t rush without developing an understanding of the issue.
Organize your thoughts. Ask questions that check your understanding, not doing this tells us more than asking a “bad” question.

Develop a structure.
Even if it is wrong you can change it as you go along, but it is wise to map out a direction.

Focus on important issues.
This is not a month-long client project. You don’t have time to delve into every detail. It is ok to make assumptions and test those with your interviewer.  With calculations it is worth getting them right, even if they include assumptions.

If the answer is not apparent don’t panic.

We want to learn about your approach to solving a problem.  So ask questions. We want you to do your best.

Be yourself. Engage with us as you are. We are not scary.
