What are the best and worst things about your job?

Lots of variety and being able to work with people who are similarly motivated/skilled. I've met loads of genuine experts in different areas here. Not only are they technically experts but they're able to communicate it in ways that make it easy to understand, and the majority are often willing to take time out to explain things to new people who are interested.

The variety of work is great too. Not every project is thrilling but the vast majority of them are in interesting areas, doing things that matter.

Application Advice:

highlight a variety of work you have done across different sectors, e.g. a piece of coursework which could lie in the defence sector, and a piece of work that could lie in the transport sector. It shows your adaptability to a consultancy firm very well. The verbal and numerical test is quite challenging so make sure you practice beforehand.

Interview Advice:

Just be honest in the interview, if you dont know something say you dont know. They really appreciate honesty at Frazer-Nash Consultancy. Read up on the business and their company core values. Frazer-Nash tends to be in the news a lot currently, keep up to date with this.

Your qualifications are important, they are what get your foot in the door. After that, Frazer-Nash are looking for how well you can fit into and adapt to a consultancy environment. Speaking with clients, delivering to deadlines, etc. Your degree and results let us know whether you're intelligent, that's not what you need to prove with the rest of your CV.

Keep calm and just walk through the questions slowly - they want to check your thinking processes and what knowledge you have, not if you know the correct answer.

Application Advice:

Talk about the different types of projects you might have done during university and any additional hobbies you have in the field.

Interview Advice:

Be open and friendly with the interviewers and don't worry about the technical questions as you'll be covering those in your exams if applying for a graduate role. remember that people interviewing you are likely to be your future line managers and will want someone amicable within their team.

Engineer, Electronics, Control & Instrumentation at Frazer-Nash Consultancy

Application Advice:

Make it clear why you want the role and would be suited for it e.g. enjoy challenging work, non-routine work / variety, flexibility of approach and creativity when solving problems.

Cover letter really helps to stand out, cliche advice but it really does highlight unusual/interesting qualities that might be missed on the CV.

Interview Advice:

Good personal skills help you stand out!
Everyone who gets interviewed is likely to be technically competent at what they do, so the softer skills are what makes you stand out. Also our business thrives on the back of the relationships we build with our clients.

Looking prepared too e.g. bringing paper copies of the CV and cover letter.

Application Advice:

Research the company values, make sure you understand the nature of engineering consulting (not management consulting) and make both your soft and hard skills stand out.

Interview Advice:

Be able to think on the spot to answer competency based questions. The interview questions were not provided beforehand and in my experience, the interviewers are just trying to work out how competent you are. They're also looking for a person who is the right fit for the company and team culture, not just filling a skills gap.

Senior Engineer, Transport & Industry at Frazer-Nash Consultancy

Application Advice:

Spend time working on your cover letter more so than your CV. Understand that Frazer-Nash is a values based company and draw out how you reflect the values in your cover letter (values are available online).

Interview Advice:

As a consultancy, communication and presentation skills are key attributes that Frazer-Nash look for. Practice delivery of your presentation and maintain a confident, but not arrogant, demeanour. Come armed with questions about the work we do and how you see yourself fitting into it.

Application Advice:

Be yourself, answer honestly

Interview Advice:

There is a test which checks your technical skills like maths and ability to comprehend a technical problem, followed by an interview with a presentation and further technical questions and competency based questions.
The key is to be yourself and to put across that you truly enjoy what you do. Oh and of course be technically sound in the area that you are applying for.

Application Advice:

Get your application in early. If I remember correctly spaces are first come first serve.

All video interviews are watched by a human so don't stress about being marked by a computer. This meant that it took a while to hear back about the video interview but was good to know I wasn't being marked by an algorithm.

Interview Advice:

The final interview will be from 2 people: a group lead and then an engineering manager (group lead's boss). Engineering managers are high up in the company and show's how we care about the hiring process (even for graduates).

For the final interview I needed to present an engineering problem I had solved. Have a think about something you could give a 20 min presentation on and be able to answer tough questions about.

It's not always about having the right answers, it's about how you think.

Application Advice:

Look at the desired skills and don't think about the ones you haven't achieved yet as a setback, see them as personal development goals. Never any harm in putting in an application.

Interview Advice:

From the job description, think about the skills you are yet to achieve (emphasis on yet) and state how you think you would like to develop these. Look into the core values and behaviours of the company and state how these align with your own belief systems.

Application Advice:

Application Advice:

Show us yourself outside of your academic or previous work achievements. We like to hear about your hobbies, interests and other stuff too!

Interview Advice:

The interview is really a good chat.
For answering more technical questions, talking through your approach is more valuable than the answer itself. If you can talk through and reason clearly why you have done something, whether you are right or not doesn't matter.

Senior Engineer, Electrical, Control and Instrumentation at Frazer-Nash Consultancy
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Focus on the core values of the company, why you are passionate to work in a consultancy environment and what transferrable skills you have that will make you thrive.

Interview Advice:

Questions were more focused on how you would go about a certain situation and not "do you know the answer" type questions - so be prepared to think through an approach to a question and how you would get to an answer rather than panicking that you don't know the answer (you aren't supposed to).
Take the opportunity to interview your line manager about the role you will be doing.

Application Advice:

Technical acumen can be taught/ learnt, focus on previous experience, what specifically you find interesting, any specialisms that you have, and in particularly project management experience.

Interview Advice:

Try and communicate your attitude towards work, and your progression, what skills do you want to develop and how do you want to grow as a consultant. Additionally, explain what interests you. Your interviewers may be considering what projects you may be good on during the interview.

Application Advice:

Try and go to careers fairs before to heart about the different roles on offer/what is most likely to suit you. Be honest with where you're willing to live - don't force an application for a job you don't actually want.

Interview Advice:

Understand the role you're applying for and the key skills to highlight which make you suited to it. Don't under-value soft skills/non-technical extra-curricular.

Engineer, Technology Management at Frazer-Nash Consultancy
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

The personal statement is very important. Talking about what skills you have that could be applied to a consultancy environment. Technical staff also manage their own projects so skills in project management are key. Talk about what unique skills you have and why/how they could benefit the company, and link to the company values.

Interview Advice:

Relax! I actually enjoyed the interview, they really put me at ease. I had to do a presentation on a problem of my choice - I chose to present my Masters research. Remember to chose something that showcases what skills are required for the job. E.g. For a Data scientist, coding, data analysis, data visualistion etc. For the technical questions they are looking more for how you work through the question than if you get the right answer - so talk through your working and why you are doing it that way.

Best:

The working ethic and group dynamic is amazing across the whole company. Everyone is excited to share what they are doing and see what you are doing to try and find people to aid certain engineering disciplines for specific projects. You can go to anyone within the company for help and advice and they are always willing and happy to help you and further support you after the conversation. It's a friendly environment where everyone has respect for everyone.

Worst:

Everyone is busy, sometimes you may have to dedicate time to chasing people up on their work or previous conversations with yourself, which can be tedious.

Best:

Interesting work

Good benefits (private healthcare, reasonable holiday allowance, retailer offers and cashback programme)

Worst:

Management does seem quite disconnected from the reality despite most of the directors having worked their way up from the technical side. I suspect this is the case at lots of companies! Negated slightly by the fact that there are proportionally not that many 'managers' vs 'employees'.

Best:

The culture at the company is very welcoming and friendly. There is rarely a requirement for overtime and when there is the reimbursement is generous.

Worst:

Once you've been at the company for 10-15 years there is little space for technical progression, as the only way to continue up the pay/promotion ladder is to go into the management axis.
