What are the Best and Worst things about your job?
The teams you work with, the support and the fellow graduates become like your family, which makes the experience that much more welcoming.
Too much choice of departments can sometimes overwhelm you about where you actually want to go in your future career in TW. But TW is willing to support your interests so its more a case of taking the plunge and then if it doesn't work out, you can change your pathway and TW will help with that.
What is the annual salary for this role?
Starting salary: £23,000 - £25,000
Current salary: £23,000 - £25,000
What hours do you actually work, on average?
What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
- Applications are easier said than done, my biggest advice is to be yourself as TW can teach you the skills, not the personality. If you come into the process and you are fake or someone you're not, you have to be fake for the rest of your time in the job. If you come in and are yourself then you know if you got the job, it's right for you and if you didn't get the job you know TW wasn't the place for you to shine.
- Extra-curriculum activities do you wonders!
- Think really hard about why you want to work for TW, your reason/story/motive can sink or swim your application.
Do you have any interview tips?
- Similar to my advice on the application - be yourself and showcase your personality rather than your qualifications.
- It's okay to make mistakes!!! You don't have to be perfect, especially in interviews and assessment centres! In the interview process etc. It's more about how you deal with the issues rather than actually solving them.
- In my final interview, I was asked to give a presentation on building on green belt land - my advice would be to rehearse, rehearse, rehearse...know what you want to say and how.
- Convince yourself you have 5 other job offers so when you come to the interview with TW you are confident as you can fall back on your 'fake job offers' - this helped me as it made me less nervous about this interview being the be all/end all.
