What hours do you actually work, on average?
What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
Talk to us! There are many ways to communicate with current people within the company – Careers Fairs, twitter etc. It’s probably not enough to just read the website, you need to demonstrate why you want a career with Barratt in particular and what you can offer to support this.
Sites like ‘the Job Crowd’ are really useful to read beforehand too. Above all you need to understand what we stand for as a company, and what we’re driving toward.
Do you have any interview tips?
You can’t prepare for everything, and we don’t expect you to. What tends to stand out from the crowd is someone who has gone that little bit further to understand us, and the industry as a whole. Think of examples of when you’ve used skills such as leadership, building relationships etc.; it doesn’t have to be employment based, it could have been at Uni, a part-time job, or hobby.
Know us, and know our competitors. We don’t expect detailed knowledge, just be aware of the industry as a whole, and the bigger picture.
During the Assessment day, everyone wants you to do well, just try to be calm and genuine. The exercises aren’t meant to trip you up, if you don’t think you’ve done well in one, just forget it & concentrate on the next part.
