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

It is unusual that when applying for graduate schemes you feel if you don't get one, then how will you get any? But it is true that each company is looking for a certain type of person not just what grades or experience you have. For instance 4 R&D graduates were recruited in my year and we all have a very similar approach to structuring our work and dealing with people and teams.

Do you have any interview tips?

For the R&D graduate scheme there was a face to face technical interview, which was mainly a discussion about my university masters project and a bit related to paint (but they don't expect you to know everything about paint straight away). A week or so later there was a 2 day assessment centre which was quite exhausting, involving presentations, interviews, group exercises etc.
