What are the Best and Worst things about your job?

Best

Lots of variety and being able to work with people who are similarly motivated/skilled. I've met loads of genuine experts in different areas here. Not only are they technically experts but they're able to communicate it in ways that make it easy to understand, and the majority are often willing to take time out to explain things to new people who are interested.

The variety of work is great too. Not every project is thrilling but the vast majority of them are in interesting areas, doing things that matter.

Worst

The work is often quite high pressure, and isn't free from stress. I often find myself working more hours in a week than contracted, and have had to spend Friday evenings working to answer last minute requests from clients. Overtime while paid well, isn't encouraged, so it often gets swallowed within the week.
Work life balance has become more of a priority for the company recently but it does end up being the case that I work longer hours to get through the work, simply because the more work we get done, the more work we win. It is certainly not like the culture of London financial jobs however.

The pay does increase fairly well, but compared to my peers in other companies, it's slightly lower. Compared to a recent graduate too, I found I wasn't getting paid much more (8%) even though I feel added significantly more value to the company by that point.

What is the annual salary for this role?

Starting salary: £27,000 - £29,000

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

Make it clear why you want the role and would be suited for it e.g. enjoy challenging work, non-routine work / variety, flexibility of approach and creativity when solving problems.

Cover letter really helps to stand out, cliche advice but it really does highlight unusual/interesting qualities that might be missed on the CV.

Do you have any interview tips?

Good personal skills help you stand out!
Everyone who gets interviewed is likely to be technically competent at what they do, so the softer skills are what makes you stand out. Also our business thrives on the back of the relationships we build with our clients.

Looking prepared too e.g. bringing paper copies of the CV and cover letter.
