About the Macquarie Group

The Macquarie Group is one of the leading providers of financial services, including banking, financial, advisory, investment, and funds management services. It has over 14,000 employees spread across the entire financial world and is obviously looking to hire the best of the best. This page walks you through the application process, helping you to produce the best application you possibly can.

Graduate Online Application Form

This is the first stage of the recruitment process, and it is very important that you create a good impression from the start. You are given an opportunity to upload your CV, as well as a cover letter for most Macquarie graduate programs. This gives you an opportunity to show that you have a high motivation for the job you are applying for. 

The Macquarie Interviews

For most streams of entry, including the Macquarie graduate program, you can expect at least two interviews. These may or may not precede the Macquarie online tests, so don't be surprised either way.

There are two sections of the interview that can take place together but are commonly split into two separate 45-minute interviews. One of the Macquarie interviews is competency-based and the other is more skills-based.

When you come to prepare for the competency-based interview, you are assessed on the following key values of the company:

  • Client commitment
  • Integrity
  • Fulfillment
  • Teamwork
  • Aiming for the highest standards
  • A striving for profitability

Furthermore, there are a number of different skills that you must demonstrate in the Macquarie interview:

  • High level of motivation
  • High level of analytical skills
  • High level of communication skills
  • Entrepreneurialism
  • Creativity
  • Integrity
  • A genuine interest in financial services

Incorporating these skills into your answers is your way of ensuring you are doing the best job you possibly can. In order to do so, you should prepare sample answers for the most probable questions. You can do this with the interview preparation section of our package.

Macquarie Interview Questions

Here are some sample Macquarie interview questions that are popular with the company:

  • Why Macquarie?
  • Walk me through your CV and qualifications.
  • What were your goals before you started university, and have they changed over time?
  • What extracurricular activities have you been involved in throughout your life?
  • Have you made an impact in university?
  • Tell me about a time when you led a team.
  • What obstacles have you encountered working with a team?
  • What are the latest developments in the news that have interested you?
  • Tell me about a time when you have had a setback in your life.

You may also be asked some brain teasers that involve simple mathematical logic as part of this interview. These interviews are very important to your application process, so ensuring that you are fully prepared for every eventuality is highly central to your progress.


How to Clear the Macquarie Psychometric Tests

There are four different aptitude tests that you must go through if you are applying for the Macquarie graduate program. All of these tests are supplied by Talent-Q, one of the biggest psychometric testing companies in the world. Depending on your application, you may be asked to take these tests on-site at Macquarie or online.

Macquarie Numerical Reasoning Test

On this Macquarie assessment test, you are presented with numerical data in the form of tables, graphs, and ratios. After careful analysis of the data, you need to answer the multiple-choice questions. There are five different options, and you must choose the correct one. Although there is no negative marking, the more questions you manage to answer in the 20-minute time frame, the better chance you have of progressing. Learning how to answer questions under severe time pressure is a skill that can be gained through practising and understanding of the test makeup. Practise with our Talent-Q-style numerical tests.

Macquarie Verbal Reasoning Test

This Macquarie aptitude test presents you with a paragraph of information that contains a variety of different interrelated facts. You have to answer multiple-choice questions relating to this passage. Although the questions themselves may not be terribly difficult, one of the key skills you must possess is the ability to analyse information. Hence this test has a lot of significance. Our PrepPack™ includes Talent-Q–Style verbal practice exams and free verbal reasoning practice.

Macquarie Abstract Reasoning Test

This Macquarie abstract reasoning test measures your ability to answer logical problems that are in the form of different shapes and matrices. Often known as the purest form of aptitude test, you are presented with a series of shapes that have a particular set of rules governing them.
