Application Advice:

Try to get involved in as much as possible but not over work yourself. Don't be afraid to ask a question even if it sounds stupid.

Application Advice:

Make sure you research into the company and make sure it's a role you really want. Be yourself.

Interview Advice:

Know about the company, think of scenarios you have been in and how you have responded to certain situations that may have given you experience in this type of role. Be confident, be yourself and ask questions at the end if you have any. Don't be afraid to ask, you have to make sure it's the right position for you too.

Application Advice:

Try to do/ say something to make you stand out from the crowd and don't be afraid of advertising a range of abilities that you think may not be relevant to work, because they all are. I wrote on my CV that I am looking forward to the social atmosphere and banter which is commonplace in the industry which is something that, I later learnt, greatly helped my application!

Interview Advice:

Be yourself and see it as 'a chat' rather than an interview. They are not trying to grill you, but just trying to see how you are in a conversation. Try to prove your flexibility with a mixture of work-based and external skills. I remember part of my interview being a discussion about the football results at the weekend!

Be prepared to give your thought on the following:

-The company and it's contenders
-Topical industry issues (legislation, technology and sustainability)
-The future of the industry

Application Advice:

Do your homework, don't expect to be in charge over night, you have years and years of learning ahead of you so listen.

Interview Advice:

Be yourself, you have to fit into a team as well as a role, if it's not meant to be it's not meant to be, just don't give up.

Application Advice:

Do not rush your application and put as much details in as possible as this allows the company to get a starting view of the candidate. This helps when progressing through the interview stages as you can talk in more detail about your application. Make sure to come across as enthusiastic about the role on paper as this will have to be shown in an interview.

Interview Advice:

Research the company and your own application as this will be the basis of the interview. Confidence in your abilities and your failures is key to a successful interview, 9 times out of 10 the interviewer is looking at the type of person first more than your accolades and qualifications. This is due to BAM being a large company that feels like one big family, with the correct kind of person the company will continue to thrive.
Good luck with your application and interview, do not give up after the first hurdle.

Just be genuine, they don't expect you to know about company procedures, your character will be the main factor they consider indicating if you will get along with everyone and be productive.

Application Advice:

The graduate scheme is a great opportunity to find your feet and start your career in the construction industry. It provides the opportunities to work across a wide range of topic areas as well as inter-discipline liaising which gives a practical facet to your knowledge.

Interview Advice:

Know what is on your CV.

Be yourself as the interviewers are very approachable and welcoming.

Application Advice:

For a visualizing role, strong skills within a 3D modelling program such as 3DS Max or Sketchup are required. Architectural knowledge and awareness is also good, but not essential. The ability to think outside the box when it comes to problem solving is a good skill to have.

Interview Advice:

Most importantly just be yourself and not a robot, allow your personality to come through.

Application Advice:

Don't rush your application and answer all questions to the best of your ability.

Interview Advice:

Remember to do lots of research on the company and be prepared to be grilled! Not to scare you or put you off but rather to prepare you. Have a confident approach, give answers with good examples and most importantly be yourself! Employers can easily figure you out if you're reading off a script. All the best and hope it goes well for you!

Application Advice:

Keep yourself up to date with what's going on in industry. Be aware and make the effort to learn about things such as BIM, the new RIBA stages of works, changes to CDM regulations etc. Learn the roles and responsibilities of the position you are applying for and think about how you have displayed these competencies in previous employment.

Interview Advice:

Learn both the general graduate interview questions and draft answer, but also be able to talk about the technical aspect of your desired job role.

Application Advice:

Be confident in your professional ability. Site experience isn't compulsory, however any hands on experience may prove invaluable.

Application Advice:

As with many companies, I feel BAM are looking for capable candidates that are also well rounded. A strong application will demonstrate active extra-curricular interests, a desire to engage with the community in line with BAM's CSR activities and of course technical knowledge relevant to the position being applied for.

It is difficult to secure a position in the construction industry without experience, many candidates will be lucky to have undertaken an industrial placement. This is a key component to the application process and when giving an account of your experience it is important to show how you developed as a person over the course of your placement. By emphasisng how your role developed from start to finish with a focus on where you have taken on additional responsibilities as you have progressed, and then being able to demonstrate how you have carried these out competently will strengthen your application. Be honest when recounting this experience, know that there will naturaly be limitations to what a candidiate will have undertaken at this early stage of their career - this will also be understood by your recruiter - therefore give a realistic portrayal of your previous roles and responsibilities, but really highlight how you have progressed and developed. This trajectory will be used as a basis of determining how you will develop further. When working for BAM.

Many applicants may not have undertaken an industrial placement, but development can still be demonstrated by highlighting any previous experience from work roles or extra-curricular activities that demonstrate the desired qualities from a candidate i.e. good communication skills, good use of logic and initiative, taking ownership of a task and being able to demonstrate accountability.

Interview Advice:

As with any interview, preparation is key. It pays to do some research into the company structure and market postion. Knowledge of some key financial figures will demonstrate that you have taken time to research into the larger entity that you are to become a part of.

Learn your CV inside-out, as mentioned before being able to demonstrate your competencies and development is crucial. You will be asked questions about various roles and the experience that you have documented on your CV be prepared with answers for every position that you have stated. Always discuss previous roles in a positive light, highlighting the aspects where you shone through as an employee. Never discuss aspects negatively, if something went wrong during a certain position this is to be viewed as an opportunity for improvement and then demonstarte where you have improved in further roles.

Be relaxed in the interview, and regard it as an open discussion rather than an interrogation. By preparing adequately, you can conduct yourself confidently. The preparation should be used as a tool to cover all the bases that could potentially be questioned in the interview. If your knowledge of yourself and the company is second nature before the interview, your responses will come naturally.

You will be asked where do you see yourself in the future, it is crucial to demonstrate your desire to learn and develop as a candidate. Your interviewers will want to see that you are looking to be with BAM longer term.

Application Advice:

Get as much work experience as you can. Show that you are a hard worker and confident

Assistant Site Manager, Midlands at BAM Construct UK
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Application will most likely be online, answer any questions with straight to the point, short sentences which do not contain endless filler.

Name-drop key phrases and buzzwords : Glue, Building Information Modelling, BIM Level 2, BREEAM etc. But be prepared to back these up with good knowledge on the subjects.

Draw back each question to your relevant experience (this could be in a work placement, or uni modules) and explain how you have overcome adversity in the past.

If producing a cover letter, apply the same rules. Spend time on this document and if you like run it past your colleagues/ uni professors.

CV styles differ, I prefer mine to be no more than 1 page, split into 2 columns. Qualifications and work experience to be easily identifiable.

Interview Advice:

Relevant (if not directly) work experience is absolutely key. I applied to BAM during my final year with a years previous experience during my placement year behind me. Come my interview without this I would have found it extremely difficult to answer questions appropriately.

Brush up on the region you are applying to by looking at the BAM website and name drop a few of the projects that look interesting, and if appropriate, why (i.e. particular building materials/technologies etc.). It is essential that you demonstrate you have strong communication skills and that you are not fazed by meeting new people or being put in unfamiliar situations.

Train up on key modules with your uni degree and use them to answer questions to demonstrate competency, combined with any practical experience you may have in the sector. Even though in my previous role I was a site engineer, a lot of my experience was still directly applicable to the DM role.

If you are applying for this role you must be aware of BIM, if not you must make yourself aware of it (i.e. Level 2 requirement). Key for BAM is BIM360 Glue, and other programs that would be handy to know are Revit & Navisworks etc. As a DM you will not be using the latter, but it doesn't hurt to demonstrate your competency. As a student you should be able to download a free version of Glue and practise models. Do so, get familiar with the system, is possible apply it to your interview and perhaps bring the material with you.

Have something extra-curricular that you enjoy and helps set you apart.

Overall, advice for any interview will work fine. Keep calm and try to enjoy the experience. If you come prepared there's no reason why you shouldn't be successful. Try and ask a few questions (BIM related would be good, or specifics of the scheme) to seem interested and engaged in the potential role.

Application Advice:

The character of the individual is very important. No one can expect you to have intimate knowledge of how to build a multi-storey frame but they are looking at how you relate to people. It is a people job and you spend all day working to co-ordinate lots of people who are each specialists yet none of them are interested in the job as a whole. 'Jack of all, master of none' is a very good trait to have for this role.

Interview Advice:

You have to show you can solve problems, that is your job really but it can be very satisfying. Show them you can walk into a situation and come up with a solution and plan of action quickly.

Application Advice:

You cannot underestimate the importance of work experience. Be prepared to apply for work placements within large companies even if they are only short term. I started with BAM on a voluntary 10 day work placement last January after graduating in the September. I have been here ever since.
Complete as many graduate applications as possible, they are strenuous for a reason. Completing the application is usually the 1st test of character. Due to the number of applications received for graduate positions don’t be disheartened if you don’t hear back straight away. I was still hearing back form some companies up to 3 months after completing my application.
