What hours do you actually work, on average?
What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
Be positive, honest, friendly. For this role, it doesn't matter how little construction knowledge you have - I didn't have any! Just remember to relate everything to yourself, the job role and the company.
Do you have any interview tips?
Short 20 minute interview with 2 assessors. Typical questions asking about things on your CV, why this company, why this role and a few STAR questions. They were looking for someone who can present the Skanska image.
Presentation with 1 assessor. "What skills to you need to be a Quantity Surveyor". Relate this to the role, to the company and what you can offer extra.
Group exercise building a suspension bridge out of cardboard etc. with a price list under an hour. Get involved, don't be afraid to speak your mind and make sure everybody is engaged. Skanska like people who look out for others.
