What hours do you actually work, on average?
What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
The company will give driven individuals the opportunity to succeed and achieve career growth; if you put in the effort, you will be rewarded.
The flexible working arrangement allows you to take three days off per month as flexi time; which when cumulated annually is a significant benefit. It also allows certain flexibility on the hours you work each week i.e. if you want to take a Friday off.. you can, or if you want to start late, you can.
Do you have any interview tips?
If you get past the early stages through to the technical interview; this interview focuses less on specific technical competencies relating to your academic qualifications and more on your ability as an individual to be critical, including evidence of your approach towards solving problems.
Focus on why you are wanting to work for the organisation. I was driven to place my effort in an organisation that has a real benefit to people i.e. our armed forces. Also focus on your flexibility as an individual; within the company you will be expected to work in a variety of different teams and areas, so evidencing your ability to adapt to new situations quickly is important.
