Please describe the interview / hiring process.

Applied on our career services website, was contacted the following Monday for a phone interview. Was then invited to an in person interview, first with the MD, and then the rest of the Private Markets team as a group. Was then given a simple excel test, just intended to measure proficiency. Candidates are given 15 minutes to complete three tables using reference data (sumif, vlookup, hlookup, f4). Candidates are also allowed to use the internet during the test. Was given the offer next day.
