Be open and honest- demonstrate logical thinking as you will be asked challenging questions that you're not necessarily supposed to know the exact answer to, but rather they want to see how you approach problems. Be methodical and think of both technical and business based issues and solutions

Application Advice:

Apply for the "right" role - with a background in drones, my application to the "Unmanned Air Systems" (now "Uncrewed") was successful. I don't think I'd have been successful applying to the Human Factors team, so choose what interests you and matches your background.

Interview Advice:

Put the effort in to research what the team you're applying for does (as a consultancy, Frazer-Nash publicises some of the work we do, so it's not too hard to find examples of the projects we conduct), and think how you might solve the same/similar problem.

Interview Advice:

Of course prepare for the normal interview questions, make sure you review your CV and brush up on some previous projects you've worked on you can use to demonstrate positive attributes.

You will probably be asked to discuss something that is related to the role you applied for and it maybe new or the interviewer will push your knowledge. This is normal, they want to understand your strengths and pushing you is part of this.

Ultimately everyone wants you to do well, don't be afraid to ask your own questions and to engage the interviewers if they mention something you find interesting or are curious.

Application Advice:

Can join the company on the project management side with a wide range of degrees, but to do engineering work a relevant engineering degree is required. Anything you can do to set yourself apart from other applicants on your CV is recommended. Look for things that promote your ability to problem solve and work as a team.

As a consultancy, it is better to show off your people skills and problem solving during the interviews than achievements and educational accolades that can be easily seen from your CV.

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.

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).

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:

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.

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:

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

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.

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:

They really look after their people and everyone is really friendly. There is a variety of seniority but even as someone in an early career you can speak to senior management easily and without intimidation

Worst:

Because we are part of a bigger parent company, communication can take a while to trickle down which leaves people confused

Worst:

Focus on timecards - can be stressful when you've had a busy and productive week but can't think of what to book things to on a Friday afternoon.

Best:

I work with an amazing team that is supportive and interesting, and this inspires me to take more responsibility as I know I have a strong support network.

Worst:

Sometimes due to the number of different teams and technical areas, it can be difficult to know who to speak to, to find a solution to a technical problem within a project, particularly early on.

Best:

Culture. People are all very friendly and willing to meet and help early careers new starters. The work life balance is good and there is a good culture of hybrid and flexible working. There is a buzz around the office though as plenty of people come in every day. There's also a strong early careers contingent, which made finding friends at work (and in a new city for me) super easy.

Worst:

I don't think my job title is well aligned to my role

- Transparent in salary banding
- very much employee focussed
- Listens to employees and enacts policy based upon input or feedback.
- Operates in a broad range of industries.

Worst:

- Benefits package could be better.

Best:

Flexible hybrid working environment, also not an iron grip by management, you are given more freedom to work on what you want to. Also the ability to pursue training and projects that you are interested in

Worst:

Can be droughts of work where there is not a lot to do, but then a week later can be incredibly busy, due to the nature of consultancy work.

Many office locations around the country, likely one near you. Will help you work towards chartership. Well-renowned and respected company.

Worst:

Company owned by KBR which has controversies attached - KBR bought FNC to help improve their image. FNC still largely independent though, so not a major issue.

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.

Interesting work

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'.

Worst:

Growing quite fast and being bought over and merged with other companies has made it slightly lose the small business feeling. Rapid growth of teams and offices makes it harder to meet/know everyone and build a network.

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.

Everyone is very approachable and actively wants to help (even senior management are not too busy to help)
Everyone buys into the culture and wants you to question why things are being done in a certain way if you think there is a better approach
I have had the opportunity to work on massive international projects and am trusted with projects that graduates from other companies have to wait years to do
You get experience in working in multiple different companies and get to experience their culture while still being part of Frazer-Nash
Get paid to travel around the country and (project dependent) abroad

Worst:

There are some structural changes occurring due to being bought by a larger (US) company which may be good or bad.
