What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
Put as much effort in as you can, present yourself in your best light. Talk about everything you have achieved and accomplished, even if it might not sound like a massive deal, it will show you are a very willing person and that you go that extra mile to stand out. Be truthful and mention something which might make you stand out to others, make them remember you from your application.
