SHL Aptitude Tests at M&G Investments
M&G Investments is a leading financial services and investment management company both in the UK and internationally. It is the investment part of the Prudential group.
Application Process for M&G Investments
The first stage of the M&G application process is to complete their online application form, which contains a few competency based questions. Following the initial stage emails are sent out to candidates asking them to take SHL aptitude tests. Successfully navigating through the aptitude tests leads candidates to a face to face interview (though depending on the section a candidate is applying for they may also have to have a telephone interview as a precursor to a face to face interview). Providing satisfactory answers at the interview leads to candidates being invited to the final assessment centre which is an all day experience. It is not 100% clear what the length of time is between attending the assessment centre and being offered a job or being told a candidate was unsuccessful.
How M&G Investments use Aptitude Tests
M&G Investment make good use of aptitude testing in their recruitment. For a number of years once the applicant had submitted their initial application they were required to complete an SHL numerical reasoning test and a verbal reasoning assessment. Recent applicants to M&G have mentioned the requirement to take an abstract reasoning test (sometimes confused with as a diagrammatic reasoning assessment). It is unclear whether this is in addition to the numerical and verbal examinations, or instead of them. It is also not 100% clear if SHL is still the provider of the assessments.
