What are the Best and Worst things about your job?
Agile working (the ability to work from home when necessary to fit around your life e.g. doctors appointments or car MOTs which is helpful), friendly team always willing to help and the interaction with senior members of the team right up to partner from an early stage.
Sometimes it can be really busy whilst other times not so much. There isn't always a steady flow of work.
What is the annual salary for this role?
Starting salary: £17,000 - £19,000
Current salary: £17,000 - £19,000
What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
Do your application on a word document so you are able to keep coming back to it and editing, when you think of new things to add. Make sure you start your application as early as possible so you do not have to rush and can put as much effort into it as you can. Use the website for ideas..I.e if the question asks about why you want to work here, incorporate some ideas from the website about opportunities you have seen or the values aligning with similar beliefs that you have.
Do you have any interview tips?
Be relaxed and honest - it comes across blatantly when someone is trying too hard! Don't worry if you need a moment to think about the question and smile .. If you are in a group interview or group task, don't be afraid to contribute to the discussion but make sure not to come across too over-bearing over the rest of the group.
Maybe offer to take up a role such as time minder or minute taker, but make sure to get involved when and where you can. Some questions you may get asked at interview include why you want to work here; about any experience; if you are aware of anything in the news; why you have chosen this company and not another one and why you don't want to go to university.
