About Mazars PrepPack™

This financial services company advises clients in many areas, including insurance, banking and retail. Positions are in three major areas: school leavers, graduates and experienced hires.

See details about the different stages of the recruitment process below. The experienced hires’ recruitment process includes the online application and two interviews: the first with a member of the HR department and the second with a manager. This PrepPack™ is designed to help you achieve your best performance during your Mazars recruitment process.

Mazars Online Tests

Mazars situational strengths test, numerical and verbal reasoning tests are employed to assess the applicants for the job. A good performance on the tests means you will be invited to the next stage of the recruitment process, so make sure to prepare yourself fully for the tests beforehand. 

Mazars Numerical Reasoning Test

The numerical test is challenging due to both the questions and the time limitation. The test gives twenty minutes to answer twenty questions, which include five different tables or charts with a set of four questions relating to the data presented. Using basic maths functions, you need to make the calculations in order to find the correct answer. Your time for this is very short so ensure that you can work through the questions quickly and efficiently. 

Mazars Verbal Reasoning Test

The verbal test is also tricky, in that the time given to work through the challenging questions is limited. There are twenty minutes to answer twenty questions; within the test, there are five passages with four related questions. Each question presents a statement on the passage and you need to decide if it is true, false or you cannot say in relation to the text. With such a short amount of time, you need to read and answer the questions in time to finish without making any mistakes.

Mazars Situational Strengths Test

This test examines your work attitude and ethics; also, it assesses if you share company values. You will be presented with a situation followed by a variety of options to choose from, all of which are a response to the situation. You should either select the most appropriate one or rank the options - according to the instructions.

Mazars Interviews

Mazars Graduate Scheme and School Leavers First Interview

The next stage is a one hour interview with one of the managers or members of the graduate recruitment team. This first Mazars interview will take place at one of their offices and has two aspects: traditional interview questions and an analytical exercise. The questions focus on your competencies to assess whether you can demonstrate the capabilities required for the role. This is also an opportunity for you to ask questions about the role and company. The analytical exercise typically involves a news article that you need to read. Afterwards, the interviewer asks questions about the article’s main points.

Mazars Telephone Interview

As part of the Mazars graduate and internship application process, you will participate in multiple interviews. The first interview is conducted via phone. It focuses on your capabilities and strengths. Prepare some questions in advance to demonstrate your knowledge and interest in the company. Interviews can be stressful, for this reason, it is recommended to use the STAR method, which enables you to give clear and efficient answers.

The second interview is part of the assessment centre.

Mazars Interview for Experienced Hire

The interview process is split in two. During the first interview, you will likely meet with a member of the HR department to discuss your competencies and previous work experience. If that goes well, the second interview is with the potential manager for the position you are applying to. This interview focuses more on the job and you are encouraged to ask questions throughout. Experienced hires find that these interviews are more casual and conversational. 

Mazars Interview Questions

Each position has inherently different questions as they require different skill sets. Below are some sample questions to give you an idea of what you can accept:

  • How is technology changing the industry?
  • Explain a time when you worked hard to achieve a goal.
  • Tell me about a time you've adapted to change and how you dealt with it.
  • Where do you see yourself in five years if you work for this company?
  • Tell me something about yourself.
  • What is your motivation for applying to Mazars? 

Mazars Assessment Day

The final stage of the recruitment process for the graduate scheme and school leavers is the assessment centre. Your Mazars Assessment Day will most likely take place at the office you have chosen. It starts in the morning and usually finished after lunch. The assessment day includes: 

Partner Interview

Similar to the first interview, this is a second competency-based interview with a Mazars partner. The goal of the interview is to determine if your personality fits the company. To prepare, review your CV and note any pertinent examples to share during the interview. 


You are given 10 minutes to prepare a five-minute presentation on your choice of topic to a team of recruiters. As you can pick any topic you like, make sure it is something you are interested in and have five minutes worth of information to deliver on it. 

Group Exercise

To test your teamwork skills, you are divided into small groups and given a task to work through. An example from a previous assessment day is that a group is given a list of job applicants and their qualifications. As a group, you must decide who to hire from the list. Remember that the key to group work is to make yourself heard without overpowering your peers.

In-tray Exercise

The in-tray exercise is a lengthy paper-based exercise. The task involves prioritizing emails and responding to memos. Most candidates do not complete the exercise in the allotted time, so don’t worry if you are running short. Practise for this assessment using the in-tray practice tools included in the PrepPack™. 

Mazars Online Application Form

The process for all applicants begins with you completing an online application form. Take your time to fill out this application form, as you need it to stand out from the crowd, highlighting any experience you feel the Mazars recruitment department should be aware of. Tailor your CV to them and provide an engaging cover letter. 

Once your application has been submitted, it is reviewed and you will be contacted as to how your application will proceed. For graduates and school leavers, the next step is the online tests. For experienced hires, next up are the two interviews. 

Mazars Graduate Scheme and Internships

The graduate programme and the Mazars internship have a similar application process. First, you will have to complete the Mazars application, where you specify which vacancy are you interested in. Then, you should complete the online testing and application screening. Upon successful completion, you should receive an invitation to your first Mazars interview. The final stage of the hiring process is the Mazars Assessment centre. This PrepPack™ is designed to help you prepare for this recruitment process; start practising today.
