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

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.

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 role.

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.
