Candidate Instructions

Before you apply for our graduate scheme, please complete this short questionnaire which will help you decide if Royal Mail is right for you and give you a real insight into our graduate opportunities.

The questionnaire is split into two sections. The first part includes seven questions, which assess your general suitability for a graduate career at Royal Mail. If your results show that you’re a good match, you’ll be directed to the second part, with a further eight questions, which will help to identify the programmes you’re most suited to.

This questionnaire is not part of the assessment process and your responses are completely confidential, so please be as open and honest so that we can give you the best advice. You can also complete the questionnaire as many times as you like. We know that applying for jobs can be time consuming and stressful, so you want to be 100% sure that it’s the right decision.

The questionnaire isn’t timed, but should take you around 15 minutes to complete.
