What are the Best and Worst things about your job?


My team and my manager are great. They care about me, my growth and success. I genuinely feel valued and crucial to the team's success even though I have only been here for 3 months.
Diversity of role: I get to do so much in a day and everything is so different. One day I could be working on a very complex and technical excel spreadsheet, the next I could be attending a Waterborne Freight working group where I help to lead the Marketing strategy.


Overworked director: my director is great but he takes on too much and is not necessarily respected all across the company. This means getting projects moving can be slow as he has got to be involved but his time is often spent wasted on things that could be given to someone else.

What is the annual salary for this role?

Starting salary: £29,000 - £31,000

Current salary: £29,000 - £31,000

What hours do you actually work, on average?

Start: 08:50

Finish: 16:45

What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?

It was a very traditional application. No psychometric tests which was a real positive for me. I went through an agency who were helpful during the application process. Although, from their first judgements of my CV they didn't think I would be a good fit, so I challenged them and show examples of my previous work which changed their minds.

Do you have any interview tips?

"Be yourself" and just relax. I thought my first interview went terribly, by my standards - although I still got the role.
The second interview which was task-based, allowed me to show my analytical skills by completing a short task in excel and answering "what else do you think would be useful to know?". In this style of interview I would say manage your time to give both parts a fair share, but equally don't be afraid to show us exactly how you work. That's what we want to know.
