Graduate Recruitment Process

Here’s how we recruit graduates for our Digital Academy. Your CV tells us what qualifications you have, but that’s only half the story. So our recruitment process is intended to show us whether you have the analytical mind, commercial understanding, and passion for digital that every Cognifider shares.
It’s also intended to give you a sense of what working for Cognifide is all about. That’s why we put a lot of emphasis on our Assessment Day, when we bring you in to our office and set you tasks in teams with other applicants, to see how you respond to our way of working. It’s a day that’s always exciting because it’s when you start to see whether Cognifide might be the place for you.
This part of the process is even more important if your degree is in something other than computing. We’re happy to take graduates in other disciplines, but if we do, we need to make sure that you’re enthusiastic and determined enough to do the work needed to catch up. And you need to know whether you’re ready for the extra work too.
Here’s a step-by-step guide to the process.

Skype Interview

If successful at the task stage, you will be invited to dial in to a Skype interview which will take about 30 minutes.
