Working in Consulting: Top tips from a Digital Consultant at Newton Europe
We catch up with Yasmin about how she secured a role with Newton Europe, her top tip for members going through the application process and how she tackled the toughest interview question she's faced.
What stood out to you about the firm you secured your role with?
I chose to apply to Newton Europe because of the unique way they combine operations and technology in their Digital Consultant role. I wanted to keep using my skills in machine learning and develop my interests in technology while working side by side with clients in a traditional business consulting setting. Aside from the suitability of the role, the supportive and people-led nature of Newton culture is heavily demonstrated throughout their application process, from tailed newsletters at each application stage to a virtual activity night before the final interviews. The opportunity to meet various offer-holders and current graduates assured me I'd enjoy a graduate role with Newton.
How did you build your commercial awareness before the interview?
I am currently completing a Machine Learning MSc at the University of Nottingham, so a lot of the more technical awareness and knowledge needed during the application process I'd picked up on from my course. For building practical skills, such as tackling case studies and building business awareness, Newton run a variety of webinars for applicants which I found really useful and can be found on their website. I also joined a pro-bono student-led consultancy called 180 Degrees Consulting to gain practical experience of interacting with clients and learning about business models, all while working for great charitable causes! Finally, I read up on notable projects Newton had worked on in the past, such as the Ventilator Project launched during the COVID-19 pandemic.
What would be your top tip to members going through the application process?
Be patient! Especially at the moment with virtual application processes, there can be a fair wait in between each application stage. Keep building on your professional development in the meantime and trust the process. Equally, it's also important to not over-prep - I've found that with Newton, in particular, value is given to being authentic and not an 'interview machine', something I initially struggled with and received feedback on following my Selection Day. Be sure to take this feedback on board and reflect on it before your final interviews.
How did Bright Network help you secure this role?
I joined Bright Network this summer about a month before I started applying to graduate roles. Their virtual internships in technology and consulting introduced me to companies, including Newton Europe, that I hadn't previously heard about. I also used the resources available from Bright Network, including the CV and Aptitude Testing guides, to prepare for each application stage, which helped build my confidence in the early stages.
What’s been the toughest interview question you've faced and how did you tackle it?
Newton like to test for a certain level of self-awareness and personal understanding, in addition to the usual technical questions. Questions that struck me as different from the traditional include;
- 'Tell me about your friend's greatest accomplishment'
- 'If your friends were to say something (constructively!) critical about you, what might they bring up?'
Because of these types of questions, I'd recommend really reflecting on your personal strengths and weaknesses.
What top three tips would you give Bright Network members looking to follow in your footsteps?
- Get along with your fellow candidates, especially on Selection Day. It's important to view them as teammates rather than competitors.
- Reflect on feedback given during the Selection Day, understand why that feedback was given and ways you could improve.
- Understand it's OK if you can't reach a final answer for a problem during an interview. The approach to and clarity in relaying your solution is just as important.

WHAT IS CONSULTING?
Consulting is more than just giving out advice. It’s about bringing change to numerous sectors, industries and companies. Hear from Newton’s consultants about what we do and how we do it.
A CONSULTANCY IS...

There are different categories of consulting, including:
- Strategy Consulting
- Operations Consulting
- HR Consulting
- Financial Consulting
- IT Consulting
At Newton, we are predominantly focused on consulting that offers operational improvement to clients across a broad range of industries.

Newton Europe Tests

Newton Europe is an implementation-focused management consultancy company. This means it focuses on identifying strategies to improve business practices, plus the actual changes and activities needed to implement that strategy. It is one of the top consultancy companies in the UK.
Careers at Newton Europe
Implementation-focused consultancy differs from strategy- and operations-focused consultancy as it is more specific to each client and consultants have a more hands-on approach. This will suit people who enjoy working with people and being more active in bringing their analysis from paper to practice, which is the core goal of the company.
Newton Europe looks for people who are enthusiastic and innovative. If you enjoy problem-solving and applying your knowledge to unique situations, then implementation consultancy is a great career path for you.
In particular, Newton Europe has a strong graduate scheme and works to foster career-long development. It views retaining talent as the best way to create a successful company.
Newton Europe Application Process
Online application, psychometric testing, video interview, selection day, final interviews.
Newton Europe states that fewer than 1% of applicants are successful, which may seem like long odds. This guide will hopefully make the application process a little less daunting.
The application stages (covered in more detail further down) are as follows:
- Online application . Basic information about your skills and experience.
- Psychometric testing . Numerical and data interpretation tests, taken remotely.
- Video interview . Filmed and sent back for Newton staff to review.
- Selection day . Consists of more assessment tests, group activities, and individual presentations.
- Final interviews . Two 45-minute interviews with senior Newton staff, who will determine whether your skills and personality are the right fit for the company.
Newton provides comprehensive feedback if you are unsuccessful. So even if you don’t feel confident about your chances of success, it’s always best to put yourself out there and learn from the experience.
Newton Europe online application
The first stage of the process is the online application. If you are applying for a graduate role then you will not need to submit a CV and cover letter as well. Make sure that you know what Newton Europe is looking for and why you think you’d be a good fit for the company.
Newton Europe Aptitude Tests
Newton europe numerical reasoning test.
The next stage of the online application is the psychometric tests . Each takes around an hour, and once you start your application you have seven days to complete them.
One of the key workplace skills that Newton Europe looks for is excellent numeracy, meaning that you are confident and capable when handling numerical information and data interpretation.
This is important to keep in mind when doing your numerical tests, since it will factor in the success of your application. Newton Europe actually makes its own tests and offers its own practice questions ; however to really improve your score, it’s a good idea to do a lot more practice.
Practicing numerical reasoning tests will help to find any weaknesses in your ability to deal with numerical data and get you comfortable with the types of questions you might face in your test.
You can also find practice data interpretation tests , which is another type of numerical literacy test included in the application process.
Newton Europe verbal reasoning test
Verbal reasoning tests are common in the hiring process as they give employers an insight into your communication and critical thinking skills .
Verbal reasoning tests don’t just assess your language skills, but also how well you solve problems, follow logic and perform under pressure – all of which are vital workplace skills for companies like Newton Europe.
It is important to practice verbal reasoning tests as much as possible before you take your test as they can be quite tricky, especially with the time restriction. Usually the format is that you will be presented with a passage of text and then asked to answer if statements made are true, false, or you cannot say from the information given.
Check out these tips and tricks for verbal reasoning tests that can help to improve your score.
I’ve practiced hundreds of numerical questions and still have plenty more to try.
Newton Europe video interview
The last online stage of your application is the video interview. You have three days to complete this after you receive your invite and it takes around 15 minutes to film.
Newton Europe uses the video interview as a way to get to know you and see your personality, so it’s important to feel prepared and relaxed when you take it. Plan accordingly to make sure you’re in a calm environment without any distractions.
Newton Europe prides itself on a lot of client contact, and wants to see how well you present yourself and communicate your ideas – since this will be a reflection of the company itself should you be hired.
Research the company and make sure you have a good understanding of everything Newton does before going into your interview. Video interviews can feel awkward, but take the time to do practice questions beforehand and you should feel more ready.
Newton Europe selection day
The selection day is an in-person day of activities and tests, during which you get the opportunity to meet current Newton staff and get to know each other better.
Some of the typical activities include:
- Icebreakers . Introducing yourself and others to the group.
- Group projects . You will work in a group on a hypothetical project to show your approach to teamwork. A key aspect to be mindful of here is that every person gets different information going in – so if someone mentions data that you did not get, write it down.
- Individual case study . You will get a letter mimicking an interested client, which you will use as the basis for an initial meeting. Then you will role-play the initial meeting with Newton staff acting as the client.
You will also have to do another numerical reasoning test, so remember to practice this as well and bring your own calculator.
Newton Europe final interviews
If you do well during the selection day, you will be invited to the final interviews. These are usually two panel interviews with two or more senior Newton representatives, with the aim to get to know you better from different perspectives.
This is your last chance to show off all of your experience and how you believe it applies to the role at Newton Europe, so make sure that you’ve done your research on the company and your potential role there. Have a look at our top interview tips to make sure that you feel fully prepared.
A unique part of Newton’s process is that the night before the final interview you will be invited to an informal dinner with the other candidates. This is meant to give you the opportunity to relax and talk to both the other applicants and current Newton staff in a more casual and friendly setting.
While this is still part of the process, remember the aim is to get to know you and see how you fit in with the company culture, therefore, the more you can relax and embrace the opportunity, the better.

What our customers say about our Newton Europe tests
August 30, 2023
Practice for Newton Assessment
This is similar to what I've experienced from other company assessments, which is a good practice and warm-up.
December 02, 2022
Practice aptitude tests very similar to the ones you can expect when applying to jobs. Great for practise!
November 06, 2022
The graphs show more detail when you hover your mouse over them
I like the interactive graphs but i didn't realise that they showed you more details at the beginning.
February 20, 2022
Felt like the difficulty could be higher. Will need to assess if test is used for the recruitment for Newton also
January 27, 2022
Liked the graph questions, some simple questions on reading off simply. Lots of percentage increase or decrease.
November 25, 2021
I like the simplicity of the screen design: clear fonts, clear graphs and tables, good use of colour, not unreasonable amounts of data cluttering the screen.
October 24, 2021
Tough - need to brush up on maths
Challenging questions with a variety of data sets, presented in ways I haven't seen before. I definitely need to refresh my memory on the basics of maths! Glad I took this before attempting the real test from the employer.
October 06, 2021
Not precise in wording
Some questions could have been worded better (e.g. ratio of earthquakes between 2021 and 2022 - to what?) and charts need to be labelled.
September 27, 2021
It was fine, maybe make it slightly harder, Newton's tests are immensely tough. Maybe take their test, take pictures and create something based on that. The pass rate for a Newton test should be like 50 per cent.
September 21, 2021
How well the first 16 questions went
I thought the test was sweetly put together. However, I feel that the wording on some of the earlier questions could have afforded more clarity.

Measuring the impact of INI programmes
The Newton Institute is keen to measure the wide-ranging impact of its scientific programmes. To this end we have developed a series of case studies based on the specific experiences of researchers which show the significant advances made during their time at INI. These case studies highlight the breadth of impact and the pervasive value of the mathematical sciences, including economic or social benefit and influence on government policy. Over time, we hope that these case studies will become a substantial body of evidence to ensure that the Institute can demonstrate its effectiveness to funders and stakeholders. The case studies completed so far can be seen below.

Computer vision is broadly defined as the science of teaching computers how to “see”.
Crossing the boundaries of subject and specialism
Stephen Hawking, who was a constant friend to the Institute, said: “When we research across boundaries of subject and specialism, and delve deep into the mysteries of mathematical theory, we expand our understanding and illuminate the unknown. The Newton Institute exists to make this happen, and I have greatly valued my involvement with it”. Crossing […]

The shape of things to come: New Contexts for Stable Homotopy Theory
Progress in pure mathematics has its own tempo. Major questions may remain open for decades, even centuries, and once an answer has been found, it can take a collaborative effort of many mathematicians in the field to check that it is correct.
Strings, Particles and the Early Universe
The Strong Fields, Integrability and Strings programme, which took place at the Isaac Newton Institute, explored an area that would have been close to Isaac Newton’s heart: how to unify Einstein’s theory of gravity, a continuation of Newton’s own work on gravitation, with quantum field theory, which describes the atomic and sub-atomic world, but cannot account for the force of gravity.

Helping You Become Great
Looking to develop your business but not sure where to turn? Need help planning or executing your next project? Let us guide you. Any organization can move forward with small incremental changes, but building for the future in today’s rapidly evolving environment means taking bold chances and making insightful decisions.
Newton Consultancy Group is a consulting company that has been delivering solutions to people and businesses for a long time. We offer an impressive portfolio of professional consulting services that are completely customizable for you or your business. Whatever your needs may be, we can help make it happen. Get in touch with us today.
Newton Consultancy Group’s mission is to provide an array of comprehensive services aimed at assisting our clients in becoming successful. We do so by staying grounded in the humanity of people, justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion working collaboratively in a process of growth and development.
At NCG, we don’t train people. We educate through a process where we help clients “think outside of the box.” We believe that learning is a continuum that no one can master, but where one reflects, learns, and grows.
(The picture was taken in January 2023 at a Leadership Conference in the Ivory Coast, Africa.)
Wellness: From a global perspective, our services are aimed at both individual and organizational wellness. From a consulting perspective, our work in education and JEDI is woven with the thread of wellbeing. From a therapeutic perspective, we aim to challenge the myths of getting support for individuals in attaining both physical and emotional wellbeing.
Collaboration: No one can do it alone. We work collaboratively with those we serve by taking advantage of what we all have to offer in the process.
JEDI (Justice, Equity, Diversity & Inclusion): As mentioned in our mission statement, we are grounded in the humanity of people, justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion. We believe that oppression impacts us all and not only those understood to be targeted by hate. We are committed to working with clients who have been marginalized and those that are committed to addressing inequities and oppression in all its forms.
Our vision is simple. Help to make the world a better place.
In our brainstorming of this statement, we thought it would be nice to share our bullet points:
Enhance individual people and organizations' JEDI proficiency, meaning they are always learning, but doing their best to build upon what they have learned
Build stronger communities
Create opportunities for development and learning
A safe place to allow others to grow and be their authentic self
Help stop Racism happening everywhere and show that we are all equal
Please note that our team members include a 15-year-old and a 21-year-old. We think that the future is bright.
About our Logo
The Newton Consultancy Group logo was purposely designed as basic but intentionally driven by what our mark on the world stands for. We want it to be a recognizable brand that stands for more than three letters.
The initials were important to include as it represents our family name and the contributions that we strive to share with the world
Black represents not only that it is a Black owned company, but it also represents space (yes, like in outer space). Space is infinite and the possibilities of growth are endless, just like space
Gold represents value and strength. NCG hopes to be able to add both to whomever we work with.
The gray box represents that we like “working in the gray.” However, we understand that as human beings we often can get boxed in because of how we are socialized. Therefore, the NCG acronym can be seen going through the box. It is a representation of our strategy to help people and organizations “think outside of the box.”

Practice Resources – Sample Consulting Case Studies
Subscribe to our free Newsletter to receive exclusive content, event announcements and insights directly in your Inbox
Consulting is intense. You will work long hours, travel a lot and be under stress. When they hire you, consulting firms want to make sure you have thought about what you are getting into. Hence, consulting firms, such as McKinsey, BCG & Bain use case interviews to assess candidates in their recruiting process. It’s very hard to succeed at case interviews without preparing for them properly. One of the best ways to prepare for case interviews at firms like McKinsey, BCG, or Bain, is by studying case interview examples. There are a lot of free case interview examples on the Internet & it’s hard to know where to start. In this article, you shall find the best case interview resources for your practice. These cover interactive case interview samples provided by consulting firms.
Practice makes perfect
Use the resources available in this blog to prepare for your case interviews. The case collection includes cases which have been used in actual case interviews in the past. Solving cases on your own can give you a first feeling for them. The best way to improve your case interview skills is to put yourself in a case interview situation. If you’re in a graduate school or an MBA program, practice cases on a regular basis, say 1 case per day. The more perspectives you can get, the better. Experience solving as many cases will help you improve your case interview skills.
You can practice with as many cases as you like, but if you do not learn from them, you will not improve your case performance. At the end of each case that you solve, note down your mistakes & what you learned. After a few days, redo the case & apply your learning to ensure that you are making progress. Keeping track of your improvements will keep you motivated & make sure that you don’t repeat the same mistakes. The more you practice, the more confident you will automatically feel.

Practice tips (Beginner level)
Stern case book: drinks gone flat (starting at page 24).
This is a good introduction to a very common type of case (profitability, or more specifically declining sales here). I liked the solution presented for this case, in particular how it started first by isolating the problem of declining sales (what range of products? Volumes or prices or both?).
Stern case book: Sport bar (starting at page 46)
This is an investment case (should you invest in a new bar). Even if the solution presented in this case book is not MECE, it covers the most common quantitative questions you might have in such a case. I recommend doing this case.
NYU Stern case book: MJ Wineries (starting at page 85)
This is a profitability case. I liked the solution presented in this case because it illustrates how specific good candidates should be. The case is talking about wine, so a good candidate should mention the quality of lands & grapes as important factors.
AGSM case book: Piano tuners (starting at page 57)
This is a typical market sizing question. How to answer this type of questions is a must-know before going to your interviews.
Darden case book: National Logistics (starting at page 49)
Again, this is a very common type of case (how to reduce costs). I liked the broad range of questions asked in this case, covering key skills assessed by consulting firms during case interviews: brainstorming skill (or creativity), quantitative skill & business sense.
Practice tips (Advanced level)
Stern: the pricing games (starting at page 55).
This case study asks you to help your client assess different business models. I liked this case because the range of issues to tackle is quite broad.
Wharton 2017: Engineer attrition at SLS Oil & Gas Services (starting at page 55)
I liked this case study because the case prompt is uncommon: your client has been facing a very high attrition rate among its population of Engineers. As a result, it’s very unlikely that your solution fits a well-known framework, & you’ll have to demonstrate your problem-solving skills by developing a specific solution.
Wharton 2017: Pharma Company Goes International, Outsources Benefits, Integrates New Technology (starting at page 95)
This case is about a client considering outsourcing a part of their activity. Even though I don’t know if this type of case study is very common, I had many case studies like this when I passed my interviews a few years ago. And I always found them difficult!
INSEAD: Gas retail case (starting at page 73)
The question asked in the problem statement is very broad, which makes this case difficult. So, only good candidates will be able to have a structured case discussion here.
Darden: Fire Proof (starting at page 84)
This is a market entry case. Try to solve it by developing a structure as MECE as possible.
