Frequently Asked Questions

  • Am I eligible to apply?

    Applicants must be about to enter their second or penultimate year at any UK or Irish University in order to be eligible to apply for the True North: Discover Bain Workshop.

    If you are about to enter your final year of study, you would be welcome to apply for the full-time Associate Consultant role in the London office when applications open in September. For more information, please visit our London Graduate Recruiting page.

  • How should I answer the application questions?

    At Bain & Company, we are guided by True North, our unwavering commitment to always do the right thing by our clients, people and communities. You can find more information about what we believe here.

    The application questions are a chance for us to find out some more about you – there are no right or wrong answers!

    We look for strong academic achievers, with great communication skills and the drive, passion and energy to solve problems and really make a difference. We recommend reflecting on your past experiences and highlighting these qualities in your application.

  • Do I need to submit a cover letter?

    No, you do not need to submit a cover letter if applying to True North: Discover Bain in the London office.

  • How should I prepare for the online assessment?

    The assessment will cover questions on your behavioural preferences, numerical, verbal and logical reasoning. People at Bain have a diverse range of personality traits and thinking styles, and we are not looking for one single type of person. The assessment is designed to stretch your thinking, so there might be parts that you do not know the answer to - just do your best and make it to the end! 

    We recommend visiting the Candidate Preparation Hub if you would like to explore any of these parts further. (For reference, the test will include numerical reasoning, verbal reasoning, logical reasoning and a personality questionnaire).

  • I am interested in an office that does not offer True North: Discover Bain. Will I be considered for the program?

    True North: Discover Bain is currently only offered in the London office. If you are not interested in the London office, then we recommend reach out to your top office preference for full information about recruiting opportunities.
