What are the Best and Worst things about your job?

Best

I like the varied nature of the work. Each project is different and requires a slightly different approach and different skills. This allows me to learn more about my role and purpose in the team, as well as develop my knowledge and understanding of construction in general.

Worst

I think construction is a difficult sector to work in at the best of times, even before COVID. Now uncertainties in the market regarding material prices and labour availability mean it is incredibly difficult to plan projects and develop robust prices that don't leave people exposed to lots of risk. Theses issues are not expected to be this difficult forever but it is posing some additional challenges to those already faced.

What is the annual salary for this role?

Starting salary: £17,000 - £19,000

Finish: 17:30

What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?

I know for a fact that it is not just about having the best CV - you need to be the right fit for the business. Try and be clear on what you can bring to the table outside of qualifications and previous work experience. The people are probably one of the best things about the company and that's because they take the time to find people who's priorities fit with the business ethos (focus around quality /sustainability/social responsibility).

Do you have any interview tips?

Answer the question you've been asked, not what you think you've been asked. Even if you have to take a minute to think about it, it's better to hesitate and come up with a relevant answer than carry on about something that the interviewer doesn't want to know. Try and figure out what they want to know from that question, what information do they want specifically. They are asking you that question for a reason so thinking about your answer with this in mind will help you be succinct and clear in your response.
