How it works
We welcome applications year round, especially for more experienced applicants, however we strongly recommend university graduates participate in our graduate recruitment process held early in each year. We also encourage graduate applicants to apply as early as possible within the application window.
Applications should include:
- A single page covering letter of introduction
- A brief resume
- A copy of your university transcript
We are looking for talented people from any university
background - formal qualifications in business is not necessary to
be successful at Port Jackson Partners.
Successful applicants are given the opportunity to participate
in our interview program.
Our interview process will allow you to meet a cross section of
our team, and is typically conducted over two or three rounds.
Interviews are structured to allow us to evaluate whether your
talents match the qualities we are seeking and let you gain a
deeper understanding of the firm's culture and the nature of the
Interviews are a mix of general discussion combined with a
problem solving component. Through this discussion you will have an
opportunity to showcase your teamwork and communication style,
discuss your academic experience and demonstrate your analytical
and problem solving capabilities, whilst also providing an
opportunity for us to get to know each other.
The problem solving component usually involves logic or
'guesstimating' exercises, based on business problem case studies.
These problems are predominately aimed at assessing how you think
rather than what you know, although a minimum knowledge of current
business issues is expected. The case studies are designed to
simulate the type of work our consultants undertake. Our experience
suggests that they provide an effective assessment of aptitude, as
well as providing candidates with an additional illustration of the
type of work we do and the role of the Business Analyst.
