Our application process

If, after getting to know you better in the initial interview, we think you would be a good fit with SMC – personally and professionally – we will invite you to participate in a further five interviews on one of our interview days.


The main focus is to see how you interact with our consultants, and to give us an insight into your career choices. On the day, you’ll work through case-studies, tackling real problems from past SMC consulting projects.


You’ll be given detailed feedback after each round of interviews, and if you’re well suited, we’ll offer you a position.


If you have any questions about the recruiting process, feel free to contact us at any time.
