What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
My tips would be:
Be clear on why AkzoNobel in particular is an attractive employer.
You might want to consider: the industry itself, the company culture, the impact on the rest of the world.
You may be interested to know that they are just now introducing YAN (for those employees new to the company).
Be clear about how your skills and experience give you an edge.
Likewise consider what development you are hoping to see from the role.
Have a think about how your previous experiences align with the company values.
Do you have any interview tips?
Group exercise – balance of team play and “best result for the group”, whilst being firm for making your own case.
Ensure you stay true to the company ethics throughout.
