What are the Best and Worst things about your job?
The best thing about my job is the exposure I get to the different parts of the company and the engineering industry. As an apprentice, I spend a period of time with many different departments across the company, gaining an insight of all aspects of engineering and helping me identify what department/career I would like to work in after completing my apprenticeship. I believe this is the best part of my job because it gives me a wider understanding of my chosen career industry, giving me the opportunity to explore. Having this exposure to different departments also helps me to network with others.

What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
Before applying for the role, candidates should have researched the company and the role to ensure it is appropriate for them.
Candidates should ensure that, when applying, their CV is up to date with all work experience and qualifications. Their CV should highlight their skills and strengths and how they can apply these skills/strengths to the role they are applying for, as well as their aspirations within their role.
Do you have any interview tips?
For the interview, candidates should have a clear understanding of why they want to pursue a career in the industry and why they have chosen to apply specifically to the company and should convey this to the interviewer. The candidate should research the company well before the interview.
I would also advise candidates to ask questions in the interview about the role they are applying for and the company as this emphasizes their keenness to join the company and that they are considering a progressive career within the company.
Candidates should be able to identify their key soft and hard skills and examples of when they have used them. Talking about previous work experience is a good way of highlighting what skills you have and what skills you have gained from previous working environments.
