What are the Best and Worst things about your job?
The 6 month rotations allow me to get experience of different areas of the business - if you're not sure of what area you want to go into, then this is great as it gives you the chance to discover roles that you otherwise wouldn't have known existed.
The rotations also give me the chance to live and work in different parts of the country, something I probably wouldn't have had the ability to do so in a regular graduate job.
What is the annual salary for this role?
Starting salary: £27,000 - £29,000
What hours do you actually work, on average?
What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
Make sure you understand that the business requires you to be mobile, and so with each new placement you may be required to re-locate to a new area - sometimes this is often overlooked during the application process.
Do you have any interview tips?
Be yourself and give an honest representation - the interview stage is a 2 way process, as well as being interviewed you also get to decide if the company is a right fit for you.
Practising questions is always great - I would advise going through your CV or past experiences and trying to figure what sort of skills you used/developed and thinking about what sort of questions you could bring these skills/experience up in.
Make sure you research the company - this doesn't mean reading every page of the annual report, but having some sort of commercial awareness is good because it shows you're actually interested in the company and you've taken the time prepare.
