Application process

We have a five-step application process to ensure we hire the right people to join our team.

  1. Complete a simple online registration and application form. This should take roughly 20 minutes to complete.
  2. Online assessment tests covering verbal, numerical, critical and situational reasoning. The link to these tests with full instructions will be sent to you once your application is received. The assessments will be reviewed alongside your application form before you’re selected for the next stage of the process.
  3. If you pass these tests, you’ll be sent a link to complete a strength-based video interview. This is a one-way video recording which you are given five days to complete.
  4. The final step is to attend our assessment centre, where you’ll take part in a range of activities like presentations, interviews and group exercises. You’ll also meet a variety of people who work for M&GPrudential, including current graduates, to gain a further understanding of our culture.

We have a five-step application process to ensure we hire the right people to join our team.

  1. Complete a simple online registration and application form. This should take roughly 30 minutes to complete.
  2. A half-hour telephone interview covering your strengths, key skills and competencies required for the role.
  3. Accountancy and finance candidates will be asked to complete an online numerical reasoning test of 20 minutes whilst IT candidates will be asked to complete an online aptitude test. Candidates for all other business roles will be required to complete a 20-minute online work strength assessment which identifies your potential strengths against the behaviours and competencies required for the role.
  4. You’ll be invited to a one-way online video interview which will take approximately 20 minutes to complete.
  5. Finally, shortlisted candidates will be invited to our local office to participate in a half-day assessment which will include a final interview with the hiring manager.

Applications for our graduate schemes and internships open at the beginning of September. Apprenticeship applications open in late February. Applications are assessed from the moment they are submitted, we therefore recommend that you start the process as soon as can and don’t wait until the deadline.

It should take about 30 minutes to register online and complete the application form. After completing the form, you will be sent a link to complete online verbal, numeric, critical reasoning and situational strengths tests. These should take around 20-40 minutes to complete (depending on the assessment type). You don’t need to complete all the tests in one sitting, but they must be done within the required deadlines.

When applying for the apprenticeship, you can only submit one application form, but within this you can state your preference for up to 3 apprentice roles.

When applying for an internship or graduate scheme, you can only apply for one scheme at a time.

Yes, you can re-apply next year if you are unsuccessful this year.

Please contact students@mandg.co.uk regarding graduate scheme and internship applications. For apprenticeships, please contact us at Apprenticeship@prudential.co.uk

Please email with a brief outline of the problem you’re experiencing.

For graduates and interns, please email students@mandg.co.uk. For apprentices, please email apprenticeship@prudential.co.uk.

We want you to have an engaging experience throughout the recruitment process, and we aim to provide you with the outcome of each stage as quickly as we can.

Apprenticeships

Candidates’ progress through different stages of the process and ongoing communications are managed by our external recruitment partner. As they act on our behalf, they will be very responsive throughout.

Internships and graduates

Application and testing: We’ll send you confirmation emails within a few days of the application and testing stages. After the online testing stage, we’ll give you comprehensive feedback about your strengths and areas for development.

Video interviews: We value the efforts you make in completing the video interviews and give each candidate the consideration you deserve. However, this may mean you could wait some time before receiving an outcome as we review all video and face-to-face interviews before inviting individuals to the next stage.

Interviews and assessment days: We aim to give you two weeks’ notice ahead of the face-to-face interview and assessment centre stages, although sometimes we might ask you to come in with one weeks’ notice. We aim to be flexible and will try to work around your availability if you have exams.

Online testing and video interviews

You’ll just need a clear and working internet connection. We recommend that you use Google Chrome as your browser as it works best with the online test site.

We recommend that apprentice candidates prepare by completing the practice tests provided by Saville. These are available at savilleassessment.com/practice-tests.

Graduate and intern candidates should complete practice tests provided by CAPP, available at http://practice.cappassessments.com/

Before getting started, you should also make sure that you will have a quiet space where you can finish each test in one sitting.

If you have a condition that means you need extra time, you should let us know in your application and provide supporting documentation. If you’re eligible, we can update the assessment with the relevant adjustments. If you have any questions, please get in touch with us at students@mandg.co.uk for interns and graduates, or apprenticeship@prudential.co.uk for apprentice candidates.

You will be able to download a bespoke feedback report with information about your performance from the system. Full details will be provided in the test instructions.

Our video interviews are taken online through a video interview provider called HireVue. Before you start your video interview, please ensure you have the following:

  • The most recent version of Adobe Flash Player
  • A built-in or USB webcam
  • A clear and working internet connection

Specific webcam software is not necessary, as this will be dealt with by the online interface. Please close any other webcam software you might have before continuing with your video interview.

Preparation for the interview questions is included as part of your interview process on HireVue. We want to see the real you, so we recommend that you try to focus on providing natural responses to the questions asked.

General questions

We make every reasonable adjustment to assist candidates with disabilities through a fair and balanced assessment process. If you have a disability (such as dyslexia), which means that you are entitled to extra time for the online tests, then please email students@mandg.co.uk (interns and graduates) or apprenticeship@prudential.co.uk (apprentices) with supporting documentation.

We don’t look for any particular work experience: we look for potential. That’s why we recruit from a broad range of degree disciplines and diverse backgrounds. Candidates who succeed with us are self-motivated, capable of building and maintaining relationships and are enthusiastic to work and learn with us.

Yes, you may still apply to our graduate schemes. However, our internships are only open to students enrolled on degree programmes, and apprenticeships are only open to those without degree-level qualifications.

Unfortunately, we are unable to offer official short-term work experience placements.
