What hours do you actually work, on average?
What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
•Get relevent experience outside of your degree (a summer placement is sufficient, as it's a very long period of time for students - use it wisely!). If you really can't find one, develop something yourself in your own time
•Lots of gradutes apply for few places - for this reason there are lots of steps to the application process. Take your time on the online tests and practice lots beforehand (nothing worse than losing out on an opportunity due to stressing out at numerical reasoning)
Do you have any interview tips?
•The interviewers are 40% seeing if you can do the job and 60% seeing how you come across as a human being - and if they think you will fit into their team. Therefore don't be afraid to let your personality come through, but make sure you show them you are technically capable of doing the job
•Talk about university projects and projects outside of university
•Prepare for the question: 'Tell me about yourself' - use both career and personal related experiences
