Online test

After registering, you can be invited to an online exam, which allows us to test your numerical reasoning, English language skills or any other technical knowledge and get a better understanding of your skills in applicable areas. The exam usually takes about 30 minutes to complete. Make sure that you have a stable internet connection so that you are not interrupted during this time and so that you can fully concentrate on the exam. Using a calculator and a notepad are encouraged.

Video interview

This is a unique opportunity to bring your application to life and to stand out from the rest. A video interview shows who you are much better than a paper cover letter attached to your CV. Learn more about our video interview tool that has replaced the pre-screening step of the selection process. You can choose the time and place, and you can arrange to respond to the questions at your own convenience.
