What are the Best and Worst things about your job?
I work on a high profile programme that is often in the public eye. Having that inside knowledge about one of the country's largest defence programmes is a satisfying feeling and gives my job meaning and purpose beyond my own goals.
Working in the defence industry means most of the interesting parts of my job are protected by the official secrets act and I can't discuss them with anyone who does not have the correct security clearance. This means it is sometimes hard to explain to my friends and family what it is I actually do.
What is the annual salary for this role?
Starting salary: £27,000 - £29,000

What hours do you actually work, on average?
What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
Show interest in the business and the customer you will be working for. Do appropriate research about what each site is involved in around the country and show relative knowledge / experience where you can.
Do you have any interview tips?
Don't over think the process, the company wants intelligent and qualified applicants but they also require people to work in a varied environment, interacting with people from many walks of life. Be sociable and show that you are an outgoing, hardworking character who can easily fit in with any group of people.
