ESBI Graduate Programme 2011

    I got an email yesterday from ESBI to say that I will be doing an online Numerical & Verbal Ability test as part of ESBI's Graduate Campaign 2011.

    Just wondering if anyone else here is doing one soon, it will be strange doing it from home.

    Also does anyone know people who have gone through the Grad Programme ? Is it 2/3 years, Dublin based etc....

    It's been a while since I applied for this, and there isn't much info on their site only this page is all I could find which has very little detail

    Yes i received an email as well from ESBI. I havent received any follow up emails regarding the actual tests though? Has anyone else?


  • Registered Users Posts: 175 ✭✭ Feeder


    I haven't received the other emails yet either.

    Can you remember if they gave an outline of the grad prog when we applied ?


  • Registered Users Posts: 109 ✭✭ Iluvjazzmasters


    Hmm I applied back in April. I remember i applied through their in-house candidate manager page. I don't remember the details but i think there was a brief outline of the programme not so dissimilar as the details they have on the graduate programme page now.

    Wish i could remember now though! Any idea how many grads they are taking on?
    Or has anyone done these interviews/ tests before, if so what are they like? Thanks in advance

    Just wondering if either of ye have heard anything since doing the tests?


  • Registered Users Posts: 175 ✭✭ Feeder


    Nope, not heard anything yet. Did they say somewhere that it would be late July, I thought I read that in some email but I checked back through them to see if I could find it but no joy.

    I suppose we could email them, but I'm happy not knowing for now, just in case it's bad news

    On that email about the tests it says:
    Shortlisted candidates will be called to interview during the month of July and August, while unsuccessful candidates will be contacted via e-mail throughout July.

    I actually emailed them yesterday but haven't gotten a reply as of yet.

    Ah good man, that rings a bell alright.

    Best of luck with it anyway :D, hope it works out for you


  • Registered Users Posts: 109 ✭✭ Iluvjazzmasters

    Yeah I got one too. Best of luck to all in the interviews


  • Registered Users Posts: 401 ✭✭ sharkDawg


    I still haven't heard anything, although I expect interviews have been held at this stage. Either that or they've cancelled the programme this year.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,087 nomadic


    I got called for an interview today. They're interviewing 8th/9th September.

    My PFO a few weeks ago was for another ESBI job.


  • Registered Users Posts: 175 ✭✭ Feeder


    Well done nomadic, best of luck with the interviews.

    Afaik there are 5 spots up for grabs so make sure you get yourself one :)


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,087 nomadic


    I turned it down. I'm starting a job in England in 2 weeks and I'm all set to go so I'm not going to bother with the interview. I don't need their overpaid job anyway...
