What hours do you actually work, on average?
What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
Practise psychometric tests ahead of talking the application tests - there are plenty to be found online and can help you to understand what the tests are looking for.
Get your CV sorted, don't let it be too long winded and aim for it to be essentially a summary of highlights - don't get bogged down with tangential details as the people looking at the CVs are busy and will be looking for key qualities. As long as your base qualifications and experience are good then the nitty gritty can be discussed in the interview.
Do you have any interview tips?
For engineers, drawings will provide an important talking point - even if drawings aren't necessarily correct they help to show an understanding of the processes involved in design.
Answer questions honestly and be frank about what you are looking for, above all be enthusiastic. I openly admitted in my interview that I had almost no electrical background but expressed my willingness to learn and that got me the electrical engineering job.
