Application Advice:

Request some work experience, you don't need a year, just one week! See what it's really like in the role and spend time with those in the role you're applying for. If the work experience goes well, inquire about regular visits afterwards. This didn't just help me, it changed my life!

Interview Advice:

Be yourself, rehearse with a friend or partner, be comfortable with saying what you want to say. If you have to do team activities and you're a good leader encourage others and ask for their opinions, engage the team to get the best from everyone, without being overpowering, you don't need all the limelight, just be a good person.

Be open-minded to the questions you might be asked, I had a telephone interview and was asked "if you were an animal which animal would you be and why?". I came up with an interesting answer off the cuff and later found out that a guy at uni was asked the same question. He said something along the lines of "I don't see the point of this question", safe to say I progressed and he didn't.

Interview Advice:

Research the company thoroughly, really show that you are interested in working for the company as a lot of the people who work here are proud of their work and representing the company, so showing your interest in things they may have been involved in will go a long way.
Also, have a good number of examples in mind to answer the usual interview questions - "a time you had to think on your feet", "a time when you made a mistake and how did you deal with it", "a time you were in a position of responsibility" etc.
Be yourself and try to enjoy it. My interview/recruitment day was actually a lot of fun and through informal discussion, I discovered that the interviewer and I shared a link to the same amateur football team which can only have helped my chances.

For students looking to get into Construction I'd recommend aiming for a tier 1 contractor and joining their Graduate Scheme. For me, I started off as a Graduate Planner because there was only a vacancy for that role at the time, but I would have applied for any role that was available. Any experience is good experience and it is likely that you can change roles over time and most employers will welcome that if they can accommodate it as it will aid in your progression as an employee.

There were no jobs advertised but I emailed the MD asking about any opportunities. I was told about a job vacancy but when I met with Galliford Try to discuss it we both realised it wasn't suitable.

I applied through the website as well but didn't hear anything back from that.

Interview Advice:

For example, I was asked what challenges I thought I would face entering a 'traditional, dirty' industry such as construction (despite my job being office based) and this being my first job out of university with no experience of the industry (I did politics) I had no idea, so I said something along the lines of "the challenges will be no greater than those I would encounter in any other industry because there is always a learning curve and I'm a quick learner" and in reference to the 'dirty' bit I said something about liking the outdoors...! Don't be afraid to talk about your hobbies in relation to your suitability for the role.
Project confidence and professionalism, try to relax and have a bit of banter with the interviewers; they are trying to gauge what it would be like working with you and see whether you could fit into the workplace as much as they are trying to assess whether you can do the job (which you can!)
Do not discuss salary or benefits, wait until you are offered the job to negotiate

Application Advice:

Be bold, positive and enthusiastic. I can't stress how much your personality matters in this role and soft skills will be the ones that tip the scales in your direction through the application process. This isn't a job for the faint of heart or someone who's more at home working alone, you have to mingle with people from all walks of life and command their respect regardless of age, experience or background.

Interview Advice:

Be prepared to discuss any experiences where you had to lead or work within a team. Any project you have completed can act as an example of your ability if you word it in the correct manner.
Don't forget that you are a person, being interviewed by a person, so talk to them like you would any other person, don't be too uptight, boring or withdrawn.

Graduate Quantity Surveyor, Midlands at Galliford Try

Application Advice:

I had 4 stages to secure my position although this may be different for future candidates.

Stage 1 - CV - Keep it clear and concise. Demostrate key skill/strengths without waffling, also good to demonstrate personal qualities.
Cover Letter - Ellaborate on your CV, demonstrate specific experiences where you have ascertained skills etc.

Stage 2 - Online Testing - Be prepared, there are webistes that you can do practice tests.

Stage 3 - Telephone Interview 30 mins - This is your first opportunity to let your personnality shine and for you to demonstrate you are what you say you are!.

Brush up on your telephone manner. Again be prepared practice basic telephone skills, this may sound daft but when the call comes your ability to communicate may just disappear. Be polite, listen carefully to questions being asked and most importantly have your own questions at the end. This shows your interest and gives the interviewer more insight into what type of person you are. Therefore think about what type of questions you need to ask, dont ask about what the pay is at this stage as it will show thats all your interested in and that is the wrong impression!

Interview Advice:

4 - Interview 1hr - You have done all the groundwork to this point the interviewer has your CV and cover letter, test results and telephone interview notes. this is an extensive amount of information already, so what is the interview? Its for the interviewer to put a face to a trail of paperwork you have worked hard to produce. Skills, competence and expereince should have already been demonstrated at this point therefore personallity, proffesionalism and enthusiasm need to be deomstrated. Try to enjoy your interview (its not a funeral) and be happy.

The graduate development team at Galliford Try are very easy going and understading. My advice would be to let your personality shine through and not hide behind your nerves! Demonstrate enthusiasm, commitment and personal drive along with a good smile! Note; dont get confused with being confident and arrogant, it wont get you far. Dont try to be the person your not...be yourself.

Application Advice:

Be clear and honest about what you are looking for in a role and level of support from management.
If you can carry out work experience or get in the door via an admin role then they will get to know you and see how you work and you will be the first to hear about up coming jobs.

Interview Advice:

Be clear, polite and punctual.
If it's a graduate role, don't try and impress them by pretending you know what your talking about. They will train you over several years. They will be more impressed by your commitment and willingness to learn from others.

Application Advice:

Don't be wooly in your cover letter or CV - be succinct and straight to the point.

Interview Advice:

Do your research on the company and how it functions.

Make sure you prepare because you will be asked to do a presentation.

Just be confident in yourself, don't try to pretend you know something if you don't because the people interviewing definitely do know what they're asking about. It's better if you say you're unsure but say why and what you think about it normally it's discussed and they will get more out of how you approached the fact you didnt know rather than listening you to try to dodge around it.

Best:

Despite uncertain times in the market, the company has retained the majority of staff in the division.

They have clear progression paths for you to develop your career and these can be validated by speaking to successful employees who have climbed the ladder.

The graduate program is excellent, I am a big fan of the training providers. They work with the top directors in the business as well, instilling a consistent message from those beginning their careers right through to the leaders of the company.

The company is a people-orientated business and I feel they are a good company to work for.

Worst:

In tough times within the construction industry gone by there have been some sub-par projects built which requires them to go back and fix, at great expense. But the company is pushing its quality training and standards to avoid this going forward.
