What hours do you actually work, on average?
What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
Be confident.Showcase your skills as best you can and be positive. All these things are key. Ensure you feel like you have prepared, researched the company as much as possible and look on sites like this to get a feel for what the interviewers might be looking for in a successful candidate.
There appears to be a common theme running through all of my years intake and I think this is a positive state of mind, and an ability to think differently. Be under no illusions however, don't go saying 2+2=5, but offer multiple solutions. Have some examples of when you have thought outside the box ready to throw in at any point.
Do you have any interview tips?
Video interview: What would you say to the VF CEO if you were in a lift with him for 3 mins? What would you take on a desert island? When have you had to overcome a difficult challenge? This kind of thing.
Assessment centre: Be positive. Engage with other candidates. Be professional. Make sure you look smart (you don't have to shave your beard off like in sales companies, just look smart). Arrive early and speak to the organisers. What might someone ask you? Have an answer ready for as many questions as possible but don't script it!
