What are the Best and Worst things about your job?
There's never a dull moment and no two days are the same. You're constantly learning on the job but I have a very supportive team around me and we all work together. I do have a lot of responsibility with my current role which is challenging at times but it's a great feeling to have so many people have the confidence in you to be able to manage that responsibility well. The people are what keeps everything going, there's a great bunch of young people so you'll never be alone for lunch which is a small thing that makes a huge difference if you're new to the company!
Although the responsibility is great to have at times it can be quite draining and a bit daunting to think of how your actions impact the company. This is when the people make a huge difference, I've never had to do anything on my own or without support.
What is the annual salary for this role?
Starting salary: £23,000 - £25,000
Current salary: £27,000 - £29,000
What hours do you actually work, on average?
What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
Even if you've never heard of the company or have a degree that you don't think relates to the job role, apply anyway! There are so many graduates that come into the company that would never have thought they'd end up there but there are so many different roles within the business that you would never know about and so many different possible career paths that it's worth applying and getting involved. They look for qualities within the person as well as education so everyone has a chance.
Do you have any interview tips?
It's probably said over and over but be yourself! They're not looking for who has the most polished interview answers, they're looking for who answers honestly and has a like-minded approach to the company. The assessment days are all about getting to know you as a person rather than an inquisition. You will be asked the 'describe a time when..' questions but make sure you do use a real life experience, even if it's from uni (I did) as they're looking to see what you've learnt from that experience and how you can apply it so will be able to tell if it's not your own.
