What hours do you actually work, on average?
What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
The application process varies between divisions, some do not require any testing. The firm makes a point of acting quickly and trying to make offers as soon as possible, my entire application process took under a week.
Getting to know the company inside out and doing research on the issues affecting the area you are applying for are more important than technical skills and going to recruitment fairs, meeting employees and getting their names to put in your cover letter is far more valuable than you may realise. The recruiters want to see that research has been done and effort has been put in; a generic CV and cover letter won't do.
Do you have any interview tips?
The interviewers will ask about issues affecting the industry and business but they are most interested in your personality and whether you will be a good fit for the role. They do not necessarily have set questions to ask or boxes to tick, so some interviews can be very short and very casual.
