At Arthur D. Little, we are constantly looking for outstanding candidates, and we recruit all year round. We view the recruitment process as a two-way evaluation. This gives us the opportunity to meet and challenge you, and gives you the chance to get a better picture of our company and our people.
During the recruitment process, you will attend several interviews and will meet and be evaluated by several potential colleagues.
The recruitment process has 4 stages
We use a combination of personal interviews, focusing on behavioral characteristics, case interviews that assess your approach to problem solving, and case presentations in order for you to be able to showcase your ability to present your ideas.
Stage 1: Application screening
This involves screening of the applicant’s CV based on the overall fit of their profile and motivation with Arthur D. Little’s requirements and values.
Stage 2: Interviews
This process comprises 4 structured interviews by members of the Arthur D. Little Middle East recruitment team, which can be face-to-face, over Skype or telephonic. The candidate moves to each round only after the success of the previous interview. Each interview will involve discussions on the applicant’s “journey”, followed by a consulting case interview, and will last for an hour or so. The objective of each interview is to assess the analytical ability of the candidate, their ability to structure and solve complex business problems, and their potential fit with Arthur D. Little. Each interview will be followed by a detailed feedback session by the interviewer. Typically, these interviews are conducted by experienced consultants, managers or principals.
Stage 3: Partner interview
The candidates who progress from the 4 interviews undergo Stage 3 : the partner interview. The successful candidates meet one or more partners from the Middle East office for a final assessment of their analytical ability and fit with Arthur D. Little Middle East.
Stage 4: Offer
Successful candidates from Stage 3 are contacted by the Middle East HR team to inform them about the offer. The team provides them with all required employment terms along with the offer. The candidate has full flexibility to ask clarifications and questions to the HR team about his or her offer.
