Research how to complete an application form/ write a CV and covering letter because there are keywords that most companies look for. Also, always tailor your application to the company you are applying for - do your research!
Do you have any interview tips?
Research the company and think about how you as an individual fit into that company and can follow/work alongside their values as well as always striving for continuous improvement.
Questions I was asked included what I think social value is and why it is important to me personally and industry-wide. There were job related questions as well as personal and company wide questions.
Always prepare some questions for the interviewer and engage in further conversation where possible to let them know you are keen.
