Application Advice:

Show you are passionate about house building and the company. Use all of your experience to sell yourself and show your skills.

Interview Advice:

At the assessment day be yourself. During the tasks remember to work with the other candidates, team work is important and what they are looking for. Don't be afraid to say your opinion, and believe in what you are saying.

In the interview do some research on the company, property and development news and have a list of examples to demonstrate your skills and abilities to work for the company. They want to get to know you better, so show that you have done the back work to prepare you for the interview.

Application Advice:

My advice would be to make sure you demonstrate how you are different and let your personality come across. I have a non-cognate degree (History) which demonstrates you do not need to have a 'construction' related degree. Record your experience and skills that make you a perfect candidate for the Countryside properties as well as the role!

Interview Advice:

My assessment centre consisted of four activities: a group presentation, a team-working exercise and two others which I can't remember! Just be yourself and show how you can work well within a team.

I then had an interview with the Development director a week or so later at my potential new office.

I would advise to know the projects that Countryside currently have on and if you are looking to go into a particular area, explain your motivations for doing so and perhaps go into detail on a particular part that you find interesting.

Application Advice:

Make sure that your application is relevant to the company. Demonstrate that you have fully researched the company and that you're a well-rounded person. Identify why you wish to work for this house builder rather than the others.

Interview Advice:

The interview is conducted by a panel, this will usually consist of 2-3 directors. It is important to ensure that you engage with all members of the panel and ask questions about that role their department has in the business. Although the interview is formal, it is important not to get intimidated by the prospect of more than one director, they are all very friendly and are genuinely interested in what you have to say and can bring to the company.

Application Advice:

Be honest.

Interview Advice:

Make sure you research the company before by studying their website. Also have a look at what their competitors are doing and the current state of housebuilding industry. Visit one of their developments if you can as it gives you a good idea of the scale of what they do and an opportunity to ask some questions. Cliché, but be yourself. Answer questions honestly and confidently, if you don't know the answer then just say so.
