What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
Put all your past experiences it doesn't have to be construction related can be literally anything (mine was crew member at McDonalds). If you have experience managing people definitely put this down. Our job at ISG is to manage a project/people/big personalities so if you have experience in this sort of area I would 100% put this on your CV.
Have a reason you want to come into construction rather than just say my one of my parents is in construction. Obviously, this is usually the case we go into the industry that our parents work in which is completely fine and still say this. But if you have some sort of motivation to be in construction like you want to be able to walk around London and say you were part of building iconic buildings for example or you want to be able to travel the world and being in construction you can do this.
Do you have any interview tips?
Be yourself - they really appreciate different personalities and perspectives but still be professional.
Be enthusiastic. Typically, you wont know a great deal about how a commercial building is constructed so just have an open mind and "be a sponge". They wont expect you to know anything about construction but as long as you are enthusiastic/eager to learn they will spot this.
