Morgan Advanced Materials

Application Advice:

- Make sure you know the company and its history. Morgan has a varied product portfolio which is advisable to research.
- Don't answer questions the way you think they should be answered. This will actually make your interview harder! The tests are designed to showcase your strengths and weaknesses - be honest and answer questions quickly based on your 'gut'.

Interview Advice:

- You will need to prepare a self-presentation telling us about you, both in and out of work, and who inspires you. Try to show your personality and don't pick clichéd examples!
- Try to relax and be yourself.
- There are group exercises too, so be aware of your emotional intelligence and ability to both lead and be a valuable member of a team.

Application Advice:

Use past experiences to exhibit good leadership behaviours and soft skills. It does not have to be an experience directly related to this programme, but it's about what you gained or learnt from that specific experience.

Interview Advice:

Be yourself, this is not only a chance for the company to see if you are a good fit but also a chance for you to check if the company is a good fit for you. Be aware of strengths and weakness, and be ready to acknowledge them.

Application Advice:

Be honest and understand the company and role before you apply. Picture how you could fit within the business and what skills you have that can impact the business. The application process is standard and involves assessment centres. Teamwork, working under pressure and communication skills are vital. But, knowing about the company, its divisions, products and industries as well as strategy and core values will give you a massive boost.

Interview Advice:

I had an individual interview alongside a group exercise to assess my communication and team work skills. There was also a short 20 minute presentation on a random engineering topic that was given to us on the day.

Application Advice:

Keep an open mind as to what you want to do and where you see yourself working in the future. Any opportunity is a good opportunity to try something new and get out of your comfort zone.

Interview Advice:

When asked questions ensure you have specific answers and answer in the STAR format (situation, task, action, result) as it really helps to explain what you are trying to display. Be an active but not dominating role in group projects/tasks.

QEHS Coordinator, QEHS at Morgan Advanced Materials
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

To keep an open mind about job opportunities, as stepping outside of your comfort zone means you can learn a lot and progress through your chosen path more easily.

Interview Advice:

To relax, be yourself and to ensure you answer all questions as fully as possible and ensure you illustrate your ability to work well within a team.

Technology Analyst, Centre of Excellence (Research and Development) at Morgan Advanced Materials
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Research the business - we have a long history of innovation, change and engineering expertise in areas most would overlook. As a business, we do not make large parts or complete 'products' but all of our components are essential to the workings of the modern world.
Illustrate why you want the job clearly - why do you want to be a leader? What are your career aims? You need to consider this carefully before you apply.
The Graduate programme is 2.5 years long, in which you will have a minimum of two placements lasting 6-12 months. If you want to stay in one location then this isn't the job for you! Opportunities are global though considerations can be made if you wanted to remain within Europe only for example.

Interview Advice:

Be prepared to show examples of leadership - don't worry if you haven't managed people before. Leadership could be in a variety of everyday challenges be it taking part in a sports team, helping others in a difficult situation or working on a project!
Be yourself - you will be taking a psychometric test as part of the application, and your interview will be based on the outcome of this. Be honest and stay true to yourself - the interviewers will know if you're not!
Look smart - it's an obvious point but one that many forget! Iron your shirt, wear a tie, get your suit dry-cleaned etc. We understand that people often have to travel for interviews, but this is not an excuse to be scruffy!
Be prepared - the day will include multiple challenges both individually and as a team; make sure you are prepared for presentations, 1:1 sessions, group tasks, etc.

Application Advice:

Draw on previous experiences of part-time jobs, extra curricular involvements at University, and placements to exhibit leadership skills that allow you to stand out from the rest. It is important to not only know about the technical aspects of the business and its products but also show the potential of being a leader in the near future.

Interview Advice:

Be honest and show your genuine interest in the company's business and also the Graduate Leadership Programme as it has aspects that not many other programmes out there do.

Application Advice:

Make sure you have basic knowledge of the Company before applying. Be honest throughout the application with regards to your skills/experience.

Interview Advice:

Have in mind that it is a leadership programme. It is not just about the knowledge you've gained from your degree, but about showcasing your leadership skills and how you apply this knowledge when you are in a working environment. Have examples of different situations (e.g. when you've faced challenges in university projects/previous employment etc) and how you have learned from them

Application Advice:

Do your homework on the company's products and try to understand a little about our chosen market sectors. Try to also think how you can make improvements to things and how you could fit in the Business as a young, highly educated individual in an ever changing field.

Interview Advice:

Individual interviews - come with good examples of how you can demonstrate the skills we need (check the grad job description).

Group assessment centres - dominate but don't dominate the Group exercises. Be a leader, but also demonstrate you can follow.

Team Leader Metallization, Production at Morgan Advanced Materials
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

It's an obvious statement, but make sure you know the company! Morgan isn't a household name, but the company's products are everywhere and span across a large number of markets/sectors. Make sure you know about the history of the company, as well as the engineering and material solutions that Morgan offer.

Demonstrate your strengths and sell yourself. Don't be arrogant, but ensure that your achievements are set out for all to see (as long as they are relevant)!

Ensure you know what you want from your career. Do you want to be a leader of the company, or do you want to become a technical expert? There are several questions you should ask yourself prior to applying for the grad schemes at Morgan: What are my skill sets? Do I want to lead others and if so, in what way? Am I wanting a technical position or something different?

Interview Advice:

Be prepared! You're going to be challenged and questioned heavily during the assesment centres and interviews!

Ensure you have some good examples in your mind of when you have excelled in a leadership/team role and what you have learnt from this. This even stretches back to before university education in terms of academic decisions and of course, going though your CV with a fine tooth comb!

First impressions go a long way - dress smart, be polite and consider emotional intelligence...if you don't know what this is, do some studying.

Product Engineer, Engineering at Morgan Advanced Materials

Application Advice:

Research the company well and make sure that it's a company that you want to work for. Be prepared for a challenge and make sure you have examples of leadership / team work and other useful skills in the forefront of your mind.
Morgan expects a lot from its graduates and you should expect a lot from Morgan, don't be afraid to ask questions and find out if the role is really right for you.

Interview Advice:

The interviews are not designed to catch you out, you can learn a lot about the company on the website and reading financial reports. Be relaxed and be yourself, prepare some questions for your interviewer and for the assessment centre - have a big breakfast! It's a challenging process but will really give you the opportunity to shine.
Morgan runs open days and mock assessment centres throughout the year, if you can - join one.

Sales and Marketing Manager, Sales and Marketing at Morgan Advanced Materials

Application Advice:

1. Say the truth.

2. Selling yourself effectively is helpful, but if you overdo it, your actions will have to match what you say at the fairly lengthy assessment centre. So present yourself well, but don't say more than you need to.

Interview Advice:

1. Be yourself. You already have the knowledge and skills necessary for the job. It's the person that counts.

2. Seek advice from those who've been to assessment centres. Don't try to be someone you're not, nor should you sell skills that you barely have.

3. Be honest. If you don't know something, just say so. Don't pretend that you do. Then again, don't go there not knowing anything. Research the company, its markets and its products.

Look at the vast array of products that Morgan manufactures and try to include any knowledge from university/job experience that you have of those products.

Interview Advice:

Be prepared to think on your feet, there are tasks in the assessment centre that have a tight time limit. The best way to handle these is to not panic and work logically and quickly through the tasks.
Interact and be friendly with the other people at the assessment centre with you.

Interview Advice:

Interview Advice:

Prepare an 8 minute presentation on two topics : (1) commercial issue, and (2) technical issue, which you hypothetically encounter at work. How do you go about overcoming these problems?

40 minute group based task, with four other applicants, to determine what to do with a windfall at a local community centre, ending with a presentation to the stakeholders.

All tasks are supposed to stretch you and observe how you act under pressure when things might not be going well. Don't give up half way through. Soldier on.

Engineer, at Morgan Advanced Materials

Application Advice:

To be on the Morgan Graduate scheme you require a high level of technical competency as a minimum benchmark. In addition to this, because the sceme is designed to create the future leaders of the company, good interpersonal skills are fairly essential. You must display an ability talk confidently and coherently, present your work effectively and be able to network.

Interview Advice:

The MOST important thing at the interview is to be yourself. Although this is cliched, the interview process is quite effective in finding the most suitable candidates so if you get rejected, it is probably because you wouldn't be happy here. Equally, if you don't show everything you have to offer the process cannot get an accurate assessment of you as a person.

The Assessment centre comprises of technical questions, individual presentations and group projects. Each of these tests your interpesonal and technical skills.

Application Advice:

Be yourself - you don't want to have to go through your whole career pretending to be someone you are not.

Be confident - interpersonal skills are really high up on Morgan's list, and if you don't show everything you've got, you're only selling yourself short.

Be willing to learn and try new things - you might have a degree in engineering, but show you are willing to embrace the opportunity to round yourself in all areas of business before settling on where you want to end up.

Interview Advice:

As above, be yourself.

Don't be afraid to take a second to think about an answer.

Do your research on the company, nobody wants to employ someone who isn't interested in them.

Application Advice:

Lots of opportunities within the company, and given that they are aware of the negative points (low profile company in less desirable locations) they are willing to make attractive compensations for this through salary and international experience. This makes it a great training ground which will stand you in good stead for the future.

Interview Advice:

Job requires less about technical knowledge gained from lectures at university, than inherent leadership skills and experience. Knowledge can be gained at any time but experience is invaluable. Show a range of experiences and leadership skills and the technical knowledge will show itself through your academic qualifications.

Worst:

Not much, I think it is a great company but if I was to pick something it would be the lack of collaboration between different divisions. Collaboration is now a key aspect of our business and this is something that is improving every year due to real effort being put into forming global teams. It is good to see that Morgan are always trying to improve and it makes me feel motivated as an employee.
