Application Advice:

I think the one thing my grad cohort have in common is we're easy going but motivated to achieve. No one comes across as "fake" or as only in it for themselves, so being honest and a down to earth person seemed to have helped us.

Interview Advice:

I was asked all the typical interview questions plus what I knew of the gas industry, which at the time was very little, this was fed back to me afterwards as going against me. Next time I would read up more than I did.

Graduate Engineer, at Cadent

Application Advice:

Try and apply as early as you can and be patient as they sometimes take a while to get back to you. Be honest and provide as much information about previous jobs, experiences and extra curricular activities as you will never know what can catch their eye. You also need to be prepared to move around during the scheme as they require you to be flexible. Most of the roles are not heavily technical as they usually outsource these type of activities so that's something to consider for those who are very technically biased, you're not going to be spending all day doing calculations.

Interview Advice:

Do your research on the industry and company along with its current affairs as you will probably get a question on this. Know the company's core values. Prepare for competency based questions and calm your nerves, the assessors are not there to catch you out. Just be yourself and everything else will fall into place.

Application Advice:

Make sure you thoroughly prepare for the testing, feel free to re-record the video interview until you think it's just right, but don't over think it too much.

Interview Advice:

Really research the industry and company beforehand as they do ask questions to test your knowledge of this.
Prepare answers to questions around the core values of the company, and make sure you use a variety of different things that you've done to display this.
If they ask you if you have other offers be honest with them about it.

Graduate, Operations at Cadent

Application Advice:

If you're seeking an engineering career, look carefully. This is a company in the engineering industry but does not do much engineering on a day to day basis as most activities revolve around maintaining a vast pre-existing network of infrastructure, with a lot of the actual large project work outsourced.
However, if you're looking to see how a large business in the energy industry grows and operates, this company is definitely worth applying to. It provides exposure to all levels of the business in a rapidly evolving industry. In applying, make your goals clear - what would you like to see/be involved in?

Interview Advice:

Prepare for your assessment centre by reading up on the industry. Be mentally agile and prepared to adapt to new situations. Emphasise your ability to build on others and support others, not just your ability to shine.

Best:

We've recently undergone a large business change (having been sold off in 2017) so the new owners are driving a grate deal of change, which is exciting for someone new to the company. It feels like people are wanting to hear what us as grads have to say to inspire change.

Worst:

Moral seems to have taken a dip among a select few as not everyone is supportive as change as others.

Best:

Best:

- Great benefits package
- Generous annual leave allowance
- Caring working environment
- Flexibility to work from different office locations
- High focus on personal development and career progression
- Always plenty of opportunities to get involved in ad-hoc work outside of your direct job role.
- A huge amount of support from a variety of sources: graduate scheme program, you can seek out mentors, coaches and buddies within the business, line managers etc.

Worst:

Being a larger organization it can sometimes take longer to get things done (for example: getting work approved, as there could be a few approvers at different levels which need to see the document before it can be signed off).

Again being a larger organization, it's sometimes not clear who your point of contact is if you have a query at all. However, there are always people around you who can point you in the right direction and you'll get the right contact in the end.

Loads of opportunities available to graduates. And in reality its a very secure business in terms of job security.

Worst:

It doesn't operate in a true competitive market being a regulated monopoly. So there can be times when the business does feel like it has a bit of 'fat' on it. Its not the most efficient business you will come across.

Best:

There are plenty of fantastic development opportunities. It is a wonderful working environment because everyone is always willing to spare some time help across all hierarchical levels. The training offered is extremely comprehensive and there is a lot of support available for personal, as well as professional development. Volunteering opportunities also available for those who like giving back to communities. The 6 month rotational placements give you an opportunity to experience other areas of the business and its up to you to pitch for where you want to go.

Worst:

There scheme is not structured and set up to guide you through to chartership if that's something you're interested in. It will mostly be self driven albeit they're happy to pay for the fees and have mentors available. Migrating to a new business unit every six months means you have to leave by the time you start getting properly comfortable.
