What hours do you actually work, on average?
What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
Be yourself- there is little point pretending to be something you are not
You will know if you are suited to a company by the look and feel of the application and through talking to the people, even if they are interviewing you it is usually quite easy to tell if you would fit in. Listen to your instincts.
Ask smart questions. If you cant think of any there are loads of articles on LinkedIn and other websites giving examples of smart interview questions. Just make sure its applicable to the role/company/conversation. Don't just ask something random. Choose a more generic question if that makes it easier.
Do you have any interview tips?
See application advice.
In assessment centres try to demonstrate you can listen as well as talk and generate ideas if you are more of a talker but vice versa if you are more of a listener.
Try not to be competitive in the assessment centres. Depending on the firm they will sometimes take the number of individuals who meet their threshold and not just 'the top 2'. Big companies don't like to let key talent go. Try to use your fellow candidates to your advantage and to demonstrate your strengths.
