Be passionate, confident and don't try to lie to anyone. Have the self awareness to know where you're at in terms of experience.

Focus more on where you want to end up and the kind of things you want to achieve. Internal progression is a big thing in finance because of the investment they make in you, in relation to financing your studies.

Research the brands! Get to know the key opportunities and challenges facing the sector over the next five years. Understand who our main competitors are and be prepared to talk about how you can apply your experiences at university/elsewhere in a pub & restaurant-based business.

Most importantly, be yourself! You can't teach character and it's just as important as experience & ability when applying for this role!

Questions about the industry, competitors, the business and its strengths and future growth areas. Competency based questions and group/individual exercises.

Application Advice:

Cliched advice which is completely true: The only way you can succeed in this job is if you love it. Be yourself - it's as much about finding out if you're right for us as it is finding out if we're right for you. Let your personality out!
Consider if hospitality is really for you - if you're not keen on getting your hands dirty from time to time - this role probably isn't for you.

Application Advice:

You will spend the majority of your time in pubs, so a real love of food and drink will really help.

Interview Advice:

Get to know the brands! If you have any bring in your own experience of the industry.

Interview questions are more about getting to know you and your ability so the more you can link in your own experiences and achievements the better.

Operations Graduate, Operations at Mitchells and Butlers

Application Advice:

You don't necessarily have needed to work in pubs/restaurants before. You need to demonstrate that you have made an effort to understand the industry and more importantly Mitchells and Butlers brands. It is obvious when someone comes to an interview under-prepared or they have applied for lots of schemes not really knowing why they are applying for this one in particular.

Application Advice:

It is important to be realistic about the job in hand. Ask about the daily life of an operations graduate and a RBM (Retail Business Manager). Gain as much hands on experience in any job role whilst at university, whether that be with a student union or volunteering.

Interview Advice:

Interview questions can be generic, so prepare for some beforehand. However, it is important you don't just regurgitate your answers and act like a robot. Be yourself, don’t be scared to ask questions and be aware of the other candidates, we don't operate in a dog eat dog environment!

I know they always say relax and be yourself, but it couldn't be more true with this company. Personality is just as important as your skills, you can learn skills and get experience, but you can't learn to be someone else.
