What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
Show passion! Merlin Entertainments is built by people with a real desire to create memorable experiences for both guests and employees alike. It is a really fun, fast-moving environment so people with a positive attitude and desire to get stuck in and try something new go far. It is also important to show evidence of leadership skills and initiative. Accelerate has been designed to develop Merlin's leaders of the future, and a lot of responsiblity is placed on the graduates to make the most of each placement. There are SO MANY opportunities for learning and development, so you need to be the kind of person willing to seek out new challenges and really make a difference to the business.
Do you have any interview tips?
Be yourself! The interviewers primarily want to get a sense of whether you will fit into the Merlin culture and also if you are someone who will be able to influence the direction of the business in the future. Be confident, friendly and show everyone what you are about. A little piece of advice - talk to the other candidates and assessors when you get the chance. This sounds fairly basic but relationships are really important within Merlin so being someone who is not afraid to introduce themselves and build a rapport will go a long way.
In terms of the actual interview, prepare plenty of answers and examples to general leadership and business style questions as these are of course a fundamental requirement for the job. Make sure that you know about what is happening with both Merlin Entertainments and the leisure industry as a whole, and also be prepared for some questions that will help reveal your personality. Have a think about areas that you need to grow in and be honest about how you would develop yourself to be successful.
Oh and one more thing - have fun!!
