Testimonials

What do our Apprentices say about us?

Every day at Siemens is different. As part of my apprenticeship, I completed rotational placements throughout the business. This allowed me to experience each department and what they do. Each department provided me with different activities to complete. It was great, because every day I had a task to do that allowed me to use the knowledge I’d learnt in the classroom.

A games-based assessment is a method of assessing a candidate’s behaviours and traits, as well as ability, in a more fun and engaging way. They directly gather observable evidence of behaviours and traits that have previously been impossible to measure (in traditional numerical and verbal reasoning testing) – and most importantly, you have more fun doing them! There isn't any way you can particularly prepare for the assessment, but just make sure you're in a suitable environment where you won't be interrupted.

A strengths-based interview is a way of interviewing that focuses on what interests you as a person, which is then assessed against the core strengths that have been identified in the Siemens Entry Level Talent (ELT) top performers. This allows us to focus more on your potential and what energises you, rather than your past experiences.

To help you prepare, it might be useful to think of what tasks and activities you've particularly enjoyed, and think overall about what you enjoy and what you don’t.
