Application Advice:

Learn a bit about re-measuring groundworks. Come across as honest and friendly and someone who is prepared to help others, and you should fit in.

Interview Advice:

Mine took about an hour, the interviewers were friendly and helped make the process stress free (so far as anyone can) I'd just try to relax into the interview and not get too worked up about it if possible. Be truthful about what you have done and know all about your course. I may be wrong but I feel the personality part is a big factor as the whole office is pretty smilar.

The usual advice I guess.

Assistant Quantity Surveyor, Build Department – North Thames at Croudace Homes
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Demonstrate that you are able to multi task. With 5/6 sites running at any time you have to be able to switch between them and keep up to date with sales at all sites. Linking to this is organisational skills.

Show organisational skills, and that you are personable. Working with a wide range of people means you will have to be able to communicate well.

This job requires a full driving license, so if you have one then state it.

Interview Advice:

Demonstrate you have done research into the company, maybe you have looked at some developments online or even visited one.

Tell the interviewer about a time you have managed a group of people well, whether it was in education or not, and explain how you did it.

Show you have strong interpersonal skills.

Graduate Designer, Technical Department at Croudace Homes

Application Advice:

Be willing to be flexible and enthusiastic to all tasks asked of you. There is a constant stream of work of all variations, which is expected to be carried out on time and to a good degree of accuracy. Questions amongst the department are encouraged in the learning process.

Once confidence and experience was gained, I was given my own small developments to masterplan, design and coordinate through the planning process, from pre app/outline, dealing with planners and the public to obtaining reserved matters/full detailed planning applications.

Although supervised by senior members of the Design Department, the responsibility of designing each house, complying with planning policies and liaising with planning officers and consulting with the public were all left in my hands.

Interview Advice:

Genuine interest in residential architecture, basic knowledge of construction methods, AutoCAD/Adobe/Sketchup etc. proficiency

Application Advice:

The advice I would give is to read the job description carefully and make sure that you can relate your experience/skills to what is listed and use examples where necessary. This shows that you understand the job that you are applying for.

A big must is to research the company and what it does. Not only will this help you to decide that if it is the type of company that you would like to work for but also shows enthusiasm. You should also where applicable, relate your answers to the company to show that you have taken the time to research. If you get to the interview stage, I would also prepare some questions for the interviewer.

Interview Advice:

As above.
