What hours do you actually work, on average?
What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
Working on your CV and having proffesionals helping you will always be helpful.
If you find your CV stretches over one double sided piece of paper then try write out eveything in a list starting with what you consider the most important, so that you can begin to drop things off lower on the list.
When applying for this role you will be asked to write a cover letter. give yourself plenty of time to write this, it should be no longer than one page. The cover letter should explain why you want to join the company.
Do you have any interview tips?
The interview was split into four sections: Group Task, Assessment, Interview and a presentation.
The Group Task is aimed at seeing how you work in a group, it is not always neccessary to take control, what people want to see is that you can work with people, follow instructions and have your own innovation when it comes to the task.
The Assessment is a knowledge based taks that focuses on problem solving and a sharp eye for mistakes.
The Interview takes place in a small room with yourself and two people from the company. You will be asked a lot of questions about your involvement in any previous roles and how you have reacted in certain situations.
You should be asked to write and preform a presentation in front of a few people from the company. try keep the subject either personal to yourself or something relevant in engineering. the presentation should last 6 minutes. try to memorise your speach and if you have powerpoint set up try keep each slid as simple as possible and use it slightly as a cue card, helping you to remember your place and back up your presentation.
Each interview is subject to change, so be prepared to get something different. try to research the company a bit more and especially the role you are applying for, look up information on AutoCAD and P&IDs (piping and instrument drawings) as they may be helpful.
