What does the easyJet graduate recruitment process involve?

Although known primarily as an airline, easyJet has many important job positions that are necessary to complete on the ground. The easyJet graduate program has job placements in various different fields including Operations, Finance, Project Management, IT, Commercial, Marketing or HR. There are three main parts to the easyJet graduate scheme recruitment process, which will be outlined below:

  • Online application form: includes a brief SJT test, CV, cover letter
  • Online ability tests: Competencies, Numerical reasoning, Verbal reasoning, Rules, Information Competence.
  • Assessment day: Group exercises, presentation, interviews 

The easyJet Online Application Form

The first step towards receiving an offer from easyJet is the online application form. This actually has a few different sections to it including the requirement to complete a short Situational Judgement Test (SJT). You will be presented with a number of different situations that you can expect to occur in the job itself. There are three different reactions to choose from and you have to select the one that is most suited to your personality. This is more tricky than it sounds as although you may feel that one option is better than the other, this may not be the answer that easyJet want its’ workers to do. Learning how to answer these questions in the correct manner is a skill that can be taught and here at JobTestPrep we have an SJT package that contains practice materials with full explanations along with a guide to understanding how they work.

As well as this, you are also required to upload a CV and cover letter addressing why you are a great candidate for the easyJet graduate scheme. To really show yourself in the best possible light, you need to include the key competencies and values of the company in both the CV and cover letter. Learning how to incorporate these values is a skill that is difficult to master so here at JobTestPrep we have a CV and cover letter package that is aimed at helping you produce the best possible material you can with your qualifications and skills.

The easyJet Online Ability Tests

If your online application meets the standards that easyJet expect, you will be invited to sit a series of easyJet online tests that is provided by cut-e, one of the up and coming psychometric testing companies. There are five different tests that you need to come through in order to get through to the next stage of the application process.


This easyJet online test will present you with a number of different competencies such as “I believe in teamwork.” You need to rate each of these on a six-point scale. This test is a personality test where your personal “fit” of the company is assessed. This test is untimed and there are close to 150 different statements that you have to rate. 

easyJet Numerical Reasoning Test

In this test you will be presented with six different tabs with interrelated numerical information in the form of tables and graphs. Based on this information you have to answer 37 questions within a 12 minute period. This is an enormous amount of questions to answer in such a short amount of time. It is therefore imperative that you are fully cognizant of the test layout and format in order to focus your energies on the actual test rather than the layout. Hence it is very important to practise for this test. Prepare for your cut-e numerical test with our specially designed cut-e numerical practice tests.  

easyJet Verbal Reasoning Test

In this test you will have 12 minutes to answer 49 multiple-choice questions that are based on five different passages. You are given a statement that is based on the passage and you have to select if the statement is true, false, or impossible to say based on the information given in the passage. 49 questions to answer in such a short amount of time is difficult for two main reasons. Firstly, having to answer each question in under 10 seconds means that you are going to have to work very fast. Additionally, the mental stress that you are under to complete the test can, in fact, be more debilitating than the actual test itself. The way to overcome these major hurdles is to practise taking similar tests whilst working under time pressure.

easyJet Rules

This test is an abstract reasoning test where you are a given a set of objects and you have to spot the relationship between each of the items. You then need to identify the odd one out in the sequence. Often known as the most famous IQ test, this easyJet ability test gives you 20 questions to answer in just five minutes. Therefore a full understanding of this test is essential before you actually take the test. Find out more about the cut-e discovering rules test here.  

easyJet Information Competence Test

In this test, you have to contend with a work-like experience in the form of an in-tray exercise. You will be presented with numerous emails that you have to rate and respond to. You have to deal with an enormous amount of emails in the time you are given and you have to do so with an understanding of what you need to do with them. Practising for this type of test is very important and here at JobTestPrepwe have a package that suits your needs. Find out more here.  


The easyJet Assessment Day 2024

The easyJet assessment centre is a full eight hour day of easyJet related exercises, designed to assess how well you match up against the company’s core competencies. The recruitment team are looking for personality, energy and a passion for delivering great service. Although it is a long day, there may be downtime between exercises, giving you the opportunity to talk to existing graduates, recruiters, and other candidates. Use the time wisely. Each assessment centre is tailored to the graduate programme it covers, so the content of assessments may vary. The exercises at an easyJet assessment centre include the following:

  • presentations
  • group exercises
  • presentations
  • interviews


Throughout the day you are given a series of information presentations, and you are expected to use this information on top of discussions with the recruitment team to help inform you whether easyJet is the place for you. The downtime and presentation times are your opportunity to show the recruitment team that you really want the job.

easyJet Group Exercises

You can expect two group exercises during your assessment day, both designed to be fun and innovative and a way of getting an impression of how you work in a team. The first group assessment is an icebreaker and fun activity where you are given a task to complete together. For example, you may be asked to create a bridge with paper and staples. This exercise is used to see how well you can get along with complete strangers and complete a task as a team. The second group assessment will be more specific to the programme you are applying to, and tasks reflect the skills you need for the specific job. Exercises include team negotiation or discussions, and you are given a brief of information and a task to complete as a group.

All easyJet graduate program group exercises are looking for evidence of your leadership skills, including how well you can work in a team and communicate with others to get a task done. This does not mean they want you to take charge of the group, rather they want to see how well you listen to others and can use the strengths of the group to develop ideas. You can read more about assessment centre group exercise ideas on our group exercises pages.

Individual Presentation

You may be asked to prepare a 10-minute presentation at the assessment day. You are given a topic and a set of materials, and 20 minutes to create a case to present to the assessors. Following on from your presentation you will have a 10-minute question and answer session with the assessors. Presentation exercises usually focus on how you organise information to provide the audience with everything they need, as well as how well you verbally communicate this information. Learn more about some of the things to include in a presentation on our presentations pages.

easyJet Interview

The final exercise is a competency-based interview with two interviewers, which lasts around 45 minutes. The recruiters will ask you to give examples from your past experience that demonstrate how you have the skills needed for the job. You can also expect questions on the information in your CV as well as some motivation questions asking why you want to work for easyJet.
Remember to prepare thoroughly for this interview as there is a lot resting on it. Think of examples in advance that can showcase your skills for the easyJet values. Organise your answers using the STAR method (situation, task, action, result) to ensure that you cover all the information you need. Review your CV to refresh your memory in preparation for any in-depth questions on it. Read up on easyJet the company and the division you are applying to. Know about the market in which the company operates and what the competition is doing. Above all, prepare to tell your interviewer why you want to work with easyJet above all other companies. Once you have pulled all your information together, you will want to rehearse your answers. Have a dress rehearsal with our Skype-based interviews, which give you the chance to practice answering questions and get feedback from our assessor.
