We offer two main opportunities: Graduate Programme and Summer Internship. Applications open late Summer / early Autumn and closing dates vary per programme but can be found on our website.

The application process includes:

Stage 1: For all roles the initial step is an online application form.

Stage 2: For our consulting roles, stage 2 entails a short, pre-recorded video interview. These interviews are assessed by our people from the relevant departments, rather than using AI. For our analytics roles, stage 2 is an online numerical reasoning assessment.

Stage 3: Selected candidates will be invited to an assessment centre with their chosen department. These are typically in person assessment centres at the relevant location – providing an opportunity for us to get to know you and you get an insight into your chosen department and LCP’s culture.

We want everyone to have the opportunity to fulfil their potential at LCP and we can adjust the recruitment process as required to support you. We encourage you to make us aware of any conditions whether physical or neurodiverse and it will be treated in confidence by the recruitment team. You only need to share the details that you are comfortable to and if you wish to have any adjustments made, please let us know before you complete any assessments. If you require any adjustments, please email [email protected] and one of our recruiters will be in touch.

Hints and tips: Application form

Tailor your application! Use a variety of sources to research LCP. We want to understand what excites you about the prospect of working with us.

Be yourself. We want to get to know you so be honest about yourself and don’t write what you think we want to hear!

Demonstrate your skills. Think about relevant examples to evidence your skills and experience. When have you challenged yourself or exceeded expectations? We want to understand how you achieved this not just the end result.

Proofread! Attention to detail is a key skill we look for – double check your application and check spelling is correct.

Hints and tips: Video interview

Preparation is key. Consider the questions we might ask and think about what you want to say. Have some examples ready.

Practice. Whilst it might be a new experience to record yourself on a one-way interview, it will really help to try a few practice goes. Recording yourself on your phone and watching back will help you understand how you come across or there are plenty of online resources to practice.

Location. Find somewhere quiet without distractions to record your video interview, this will help you focus on the task and what you want to say.

Relax. Aim your body language towards the camera and try to relax into the experience, this will help you answer the questions more naturally.

Reasonable adjustments. If you require any adjustments to the process, please contact us at our dedicated email address: [email protected]

Hints and tips: Assessment centre

Re-read your application. Remind yourself of what you’ve told us so far.

Be up to date. Check the news for any current events and sector related pieces to talk about during the day.

Dress code. Make sure you know the dress code and if in doubt, business smart is a safe bet.

Arrive early. Plan your journey in advance so you know where you’re going and give yourself plenty of time so there are no last minute panics finding the office.

Above all… be yourself and show us your personality. Make sure to ask all the questions you need to, to ensure you’d be happy in our working environment if you are successful.
