What hours do you actually work, on average?
What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
Try to get some work experience. If you can take a placement year, then that is ideal. For me, I did not have a first degree in a construction-related subject (it was in History), so I organised with a contractor to spend a week at a project. I took a week off work from my job at the time to gain an insight, offer something interesting to include in my application and confirm this was the career I wanted to pursue.
Also, make sure you read the job description and cover how you meet that criteria in the application. If in the past you have not done exactly what they are asking for, display times and experiences when you have gained and used skills that will enable you to carry out the required tasks once you are doing that job.
Do you have any interview tips?
Bring enthusiasm and drive to the table. Ensure you understand what the job is about, what the company do, and what you want from your career.
