What hours do you actually work, on average?
What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
Have some experience. It's obvious, but the guy who keeps referring to a project he did in university will never have as much to say as the girl who's worked on a site even if that was only for a summer placement. It's also very useful to know details about the project beyond the area worked on, a highly driven applicant would understand that as a contracting business knowing the project inside is an appealing quality.
Do you have any interview tips?
If you can demonstrate a genuine interest for the industry everything will flow easily. If you're able to talk about issues in the industry, exciting projects, site visits you've been on etc. things like that, the interview quickly becomes more of a conversation than an interview. If you can't do this the interviewer will be forced to stick to those dreaded teamwork questions.
