    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Ricardo in September 2020.

    Interview

    Has a phone screening and an online SHL test on Python which was not easy. Then had a interview with the manager of the data group and technical lead. They were very patient and lovable talking to. Nice experience overall. Didn’t get an offer for lack of experience.

  • COVID-19

    Dave Shemmans, Chief Executive Officer here at Ricardo, has commented this about how the company have dealt with the challenges of 2020: "The pandemic has made this a time of extreme global volatility. The resilience of our business has helped us weather the storm well - thanks to the agility and passion of our team and the underpinning strategy to be active in diverse geographies and sectors. I couldn't be prouder of our team as they transitioned to home working and focused on finding solutions in a "new normal" to deliver products and services to our global clients. "We enter the new financial year with a good order book and we secured over £70m of new orders in July and August 2020. We have an agile business that has proven its resilience in a highly uncertain environment. We continue to see good opportunities for Ricardo in the markets that we serve, and through the execution of our strategy we are well positioned to continue to grow our Group as a sustainable business that delivers value for all of our stakeholders."
