What are the Best and Worst things about your job?
Exposure to divisional directors, mentorship from divisional Managing Director, exposure to senior leadership within Barratt Group.
Experience of different departments really varied. It is a challenge to properly convey the merits of spending two months in each department to divisional employees who are working in that day-to-day role when they know you're only there for two months and won't be joining that particular team full time.
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?
On the judgement tests really think your answers through, there are so many questions and having had the opportunity to review my application feedback I realised that I could've performed better in this element purely by thinking each statement through.
Do you have any interview tips?
The interview was much more focused on interpersonal skills and how as a prospective employee you would represent Barratt. Therefore I think it is crucial to wear a professional hat and represent the company well but at the same time to be personable and not just say what the interviewer is expecting to hear. Having had the opportunity to review my assessment centre feedback I would say good body language and manners are important, along with being able to strike up a rapport with the interviewer.
