Hill Dickinson Application Process

Applying to be a Hill Dickinson graduate training contract, a summer Hill Dickinson vacation scheme, or an experienced hire job? This involves impressing the recruiters through several tests. The product is designed to provide you with tips and guidance for this application process and show you how you can prepare and improve your application at each stage. The main focus is on the Hill Dickinson Recruitment process for the most exhaustive process, the Hill Dickinson graduate training scheme.

Hill Dickinson Online Application Form

The first stage of the Hill Dickinson application process is the online application form. Before applying, do a research and find out what is important in you for the Hill Dickinson employer. In addition, get properly ready for your application. It is of great importance to the employers that Hill Dickinson applicants understand the job culture and are confident about the match. It could be a good idea to start by paying a visit to the office and/or applying for a Hill Dickinson vacation scheme beforehand, as this shows incentive and interest. The first impression is crucial, so when taking the Hill Dickinson critical thinking test, make sure to take your time on each question, answer the questions in full and check spelling and grammar. The final part of the Hill Dickinson application process is the Hill Dickinson assessment day, where a number of tasks such as interviews, written exercises, group exercises and presentations are commonly assigned.

Hill Dickinson Watson Glaser Test

If your application form meets the required criteria, you will be invited to sit the online Hill Dickinson critical reasoning test. The Watson Glaser test used by the firm is a different style of test to the usual verbal or numerical reasoning tests you may be familiar with.

The Hill Dickinson Watson Glaser examines your skills in five disciplines:

  • Drawing inferences
  • Recognising assumptions
  • Deductive reasoning
  • Logical interpretation
  • Argument evaluation.

Given the unique nature of the test, you should take the time to take practice tests and familiarise yourself with the type of questions asked and the answers you need to provide. This PrepPack™ provides you with Watson Glaser-style tests and practice questions, in order to help you understand more about this test and improve your score.

Hill Dickinson Video Interview

As the assessment's name suggests, the Hill Dickinson video interview is an interview done via video. Therefore, you will be interviewed via Skype or via a link to an interview platform that contains pre-determined interview questions. Here, you will have a chance to briefly view the question before you record and submit your answer. Although seemingly easier, this method of interviewing means you do not have a chance to expand upon your answers or explain yourself further. Thus, it's essential that your answers be spot-on. The most efficient way to prepare for the Hill Dickinson Video Interview questions will be by utilising the resources gained by signing up with the offered PrepPack™. For some more information regarding the Hill Dickinson video interview questions, you can have a look at the video interview PrepPack™.

Hill Dickinson Assessment Day

Around 100 candidates will be invited to the Hill Dickinson assessment centre at the offices they have applied to. The assessment day will be a full day, with a variety of activities and tests designed to assess you on a range of skills. Although the lunch is not an assessment, it is still an opportunity to make a good impression on the Hill Dickinson staff. The day will be long and intense; therefore, be sure to get a good night’s sleep the night before and to be prepared for anything on the day. Below you will find a breakdown of the Hill Dickinson assessment centre.

Hill Dickinson Presentation

Upon arrival at the Hill Dickinson assessment centre, you are given a small envelope with a topic inside. You have 10 to 15 minutes to prepare a short presentation, which you will present to the rest of the group. The topics for the presentations are normally current affairs, such as “should all police be armed?” They may, however, be entirely random for example shopping, gangs, drugs, prostitutes or caravans! You are assessed on whether your presentation is logically structured and how you present your argument. The Hill Dickinson presentation exercise is never easy, but there are some key tips you can be aware of to improve your performance. Those PrepPacks™ contain practice materials to help you achieve your best performance at the Hill Dickson assessment day.

Hill Dickinson Written Exercise

For the written exercise, you will be given a topic and asked to draft a document on that topic. You are tested on style, language usage, spelling and grammar. Previous topics include:

  • Debating who is at fault in a horse racing accident and whether the injured parties are able to sue.
  • If you were in charge of a new country, what two constitutional rules would you create and why?

It is important to note that you may be called to your Hill Dickinson interview during this test, so make sure you plan your report to avoid losing the thread of your argument due to the interruption.

Hill Dickinson Interview Questions

The Hill Dickinson interview is with a panel of partners. The interview contains a competency section, where they will ask you about your Hill Dickinson application form and your fit to the company, as well as a more free-flowing part, where the partners will ask more about you. Hill Dickinson interview questions can include: Why do you want to work for Hill Dickinson? Why should we hire you? Tell us about our recent cases. The firm advises that you research them and go into the interview knowing as much as possible about who they are, what they like and the types of work that they do and so on. You can also prepare questions about the firm to ask in the interview. These questions should be about the information you want to know about, that will help you make your decision in the future. The interview is your opportunity to impress partners face to face.

It is important to prepare for the Hill Dickinson interview, both answers that you would like to give, but also about the skills needed to take a successful interview. 

Hill Dickinson Group Discussion

The group discussion is a negotiation between you and the other members of the group. It is designed to assess how you apply logic to a problem and come to a resolution. An example of a group discussion at a Hill Dickinson assessment centre is: The group were given a list of employees in a company. They were then asked to shortlist these employees according to a point system the company had in place to decide who should be made redundant. Points are awarded based on pregnancy, sick days and official warnings. The group then discussed who should be made redundant according to these scores. Group discussions also enable the assessors to look at your ability to work in a team, how you come across in a group setting and how you interact with others who may not have the same skills as you. Getting the balance right in a group setting can be difficult. See how the PrepPack™ can help you improve your group discussion skills here.

Prepare for Success

The Hill Dickinson application process tests a lot of different skills in a variety of ways and you need to be prepared to do your best at each stage. The application process is the same for vacation scheme applicants, the graduate training contract applicants and for each Hill Dickinson office. This page aims to give you an overview of the process and show you how the PrepPack™ can help you prepare for each new test.
