What are the Best and Worst things about your job?
The best things about my job are the rewarding work I get to do and the responsibility that I have obtained whilst working here. Doing something that I enjoy and challenges me keeps me motivated to perform well. Also, being able to take ownership over my work and make my own decisions is something that is very satisfying. The work environment in the office is also one of the best things about my job. Having colleagues that are welcoming and hard-working goes a long way towards improving my own motivation. Everyone, including management, is very approachable and makes time to help out the newer people to the company such as myself.
There aren't a whole load of negative aspects about my job. If I had to say one, it would be that some tasks can be pretty repetitive. However, this is to be expected in this line of work and it's not too often that I find myself having to repeat the same sort of task over and over.

What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
I would say to make sure your CV is as concise and focused as possible. Be critical and make sure that only the most relevant information is included. It is more interesting to read a shorter CV that is filled with relevant information than a longer one that waffles on and bores the reader. It is also important to tailor your application to the job role that you are seeking as opposed to a generic one.
Do you have any interview tips?
In preparation for your interview, go over your CV as many times as possible. Remember that this is the main source of information that your interviewer has about you so will, therefore, be a key focus during the interview. Try to anticipate as many possible questions as you can and take time to come up with suitable responses to all of them. Think of anecdotes that will be able to back up the claims you make in your CV and showcase your abilities. Avoid rushing into answers as soon as a question is given. Simply taking a few seconds to compose yourself and decide what to talk about can be the difference between a confused, jumbled response and a confident, interesting one. Lastly, relax. Remember that the interviewers are people too and they want to get the best out of you.
