What are the best and worst things about your job?

- Having real accountability for my actions and the decisions that I take. Yes it can be a bit daunting initially, but knowing that there are people to support and guide me makes it easier!
- The variety of my work.
- The people. I get to work with colleagues from across the whole of the business in different functions and also external parties such as creative designers.
- Being trusted and feeling valued. I'm trusted to make decisions, feel comfortable to make mistakes and feel valued by my team and the company.
- Being able to get involved in a variety of projects and events across the company that are outside of my day-to-day role - this includes charity events, mentoring, and community projects.
- Being able to travel across the country to different sites, to learn about all areas of our supply chain (from farms, feed mills, product development) and meet and connect with other colleagues who I wouldn't ordinarily see regularly.

Industry: Consumer Goods and FMCG Department: Supply Chain Job Title: Supply Chain Partnership Manager

What are the best and worst things about your job?

There's never a dull moment and no two days are the same. You're constantly learning on the job but I have a very supportive team around me and we all work together. I do have a lot of responsibility with my current role which is challenging at times but it's a great feeling to have so many people have the confidence in you to be able to manage that responsibility well. The people are what keeps everything going, there's a great bunch of young people so you'll never be alone for lunch which is a small thing that makes a huge difference if you're new to the company!

Application Advice:

Research the company - show why you want to apply.
Check and check again - get someone to run through your application, to check there are no little mistakes and help make a good first impression.

Interview Advice:

Be yourself- interviews and assessment days can be intense but being as authentic as you can will stand you in good stead.
Be prepared - make sure you have done your research on the Company and be prepared to demonstrate why you truly want to work there and are suited to the role.
Try and relax and be calm- the interviewers know you are nervous and they aren't trying to trick you in their questions. Take a deep breath and gather your thoughts first. It's okay to ask them to repeat the question.
Don't be afraid to ask questions - this is your opportunity to find out more about the company, the role and anything else!
Be on time and make sure you are presentable - first impressions count.

Application Advice:

Even if you've never heard of the company or have a degree that you don't think relates to the job role, apply anyway! There are so many graduates that come into the company that would never have thought they'd end up there but there are so many different roles within the business that you would never know about and so many different possible career paths that it's worth applying and getting involved. They look for qualities within the person as well as education so everyone has a chance.

Interview Advice:

It's probably said over and over but be yourself! They're not looking for who has the most polished interview answers, they're looking for who answers honestly and has a like-minded approach to the company. The assessment days are all about getting to know you as a person rather than an inquisition. You will be asked the 'describe a time when..' questions but make sure you do use a real life experience, even if it's from uni (I did) as they're looking to see what you've learnt from that experience and how you can apply it so will be able to tell if it's not your own.

Best:

They do look after their own and are very much about keeping and holding onto people. Once you're in there's huge opportunities for your career and flexibility so if you want to try something new there are chance for you to do so. Without doubt the people are different to anywhere else I've experienced, and really make the company.
