Interview Advice:

Be friendly and confident - construction is all about dealing with people.

Graduate Trainee, Engineering Services at ISG Plc
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

As this is a construction company try to show you have knowledge about the industry and relate experiences using terminology commonly used. For example, if you applying to be a construction manager demonstrate managing people and show you know about planning etc. If your applying to be a QS show you know what it takes to be a QS and not blanket statements. Try be specific and relay your experiences with it (even if it is not construction related).

Interview Advice:

The assessment centre is where most people struggle. The first stage of the interview asks you normal competency questions which you would be prepared for, but also one or two questions about construction as a whole.

The Assessment Centre is more challenge where you will first do a detailed interview. You will first be asked about your experiences on your CV, then harder questions on construction common knowledge such as: How would you implement sustainability? How could you improve a specific process etc (There's no wrong answer but show you can think on the spot).

Next stage would be a group interview, I found this most challenging. You will be given a document of information where you would need more time to read through so I would recommend you highlight specific instructions given to you and get an idea of what the main task is. If you're completely lost don't panic, as many people will feel the same way. Your best option would be to manage the information your group has obtained and organise it. You can be an ideas person, organiser, leader, to give yourself the best opportunity I would recommend to be the leader and even if you do not have ideas manage and organise the team (Not just a time keeper) and make everyone relay information back to you. Take charge of being the note taker.
Our task was to refurbish a coffee shop for a client in time for their grand opening, we were given dates and we had to choose between 2 or 3 different suppliers to complete the works. They all differed in price, experience, and timings, and in the end we chose a reliable supplier with a more expensive price (Reputation is more important) and were late in completing the project. As long as you come up with alternatives for your shortcomings the assessors will love that you thought about it come question time.

Try to tailor the cover letter for each company instead of using a general one.

Research on ISG business or background (e.g. locations) will help in the interview.
