Cadent

Graduate Engineer, Operations & Maintenance – Pipelines at Cadent

Application Advice: Take your time and make sure any CV/cover letter you submit are unique to the company - in other words, try and tick off the expected competencies laid out in the job role. Applying for jobs is tough and often you want to get as many applications in as you can in the shortest length of time - going for quality of application over quantity would be my advice

Interview Advice: All about preparation. Cadent gave us an idea of the type of things we would be asked and also asked us to prepare a presentation. The hours I put in in the week leading up gave me good confidence by the time the interview arrived. Although its difficult to predict, having some good general knowledge about the technical work a company does will always stand you in good stead.

Graduate Project Manager, Capital Delivery & Commercial – Water – Non Infra at Severn Trent

Application Advice: Be yourself, take your time and make sure you get plenty of practice beforehand (especially for the numeric/verbal reasoning tests and situational assessments, as for these, practice really does make perfect).

Interview Advice: There was a video interview which was relatively standard for graduate schemes and then after this at the assessment centre there was a further face to face interview. For this, we had to prepare a presentation in advance. The interviewer was not interested in what was on the slides and just wanted to hear what I had to say - which was refreshing. It was very relaxed and wasn't stressful in comparison to other assessment centres I had attended. The presentation was around the water industry and tested our ability to research in advance (the company and the industry) and then some retrospection on what my strengths and weaknesses were and how I can use this knowledge to develop in the role.

Integrity is vital to this industry and you are definitely not expected to know everything before you join.

Interview Advice: It sounds clichéd, but as far as possible, be yourself. There's a wide range of personality types in my team but one common feature is honesty. Interviewers always want you to portray who you are and to succeed. Most of any job is working with other people, treat the interviewer as somebody you want to work with. My questions were strength based so take time to think about what you value and how you approach certain tasks. Examples are great in this scenario. Check the company's values and see where you align with them without being too rehearsed.

Application Advice: Any evidence which shows you have an interest in commodity trading helps. If you're part of a relevant society then make sure you contribute to it rather than just being a member.

Interview Advice: Make sure you come prepared, having read up on recent news events and thought about how these might affect RWEST. Remember to be natural - the interviewers are testing both whether you're skilled enough to work here, but also whether they'd want to work with you as a person. If you're not a fit on a personality level then you wouldn't enjoy working here anyway.

Think up a couple of questions to ask the interviewer at the end, there is nothing worse than them saying "Do you have any questions?" and you not having any curiosity!

Level 3 Advanced Apprenticeship – Power Networks Craftsperson, Advanced Apprenticeship at UK Power Networks

Application Advice: Ask as many questions as possible. I felt a lot of information about the job was lacking and for some people coming from an existing job it may not always be the right move. HR could have been a lot more forthcoming with information about roles and the difference between a jointer/fitter/linesman etc considering the lengthy application. I'd say they need to get to know their candidates as much you need to know about your new job. Mainly to see if it is a good fit. Ask about where you are working, what hours you'll be working and consider that you'll be required to do a lot of driving in your own vehicle.

Interview Advice: Be prepared for a long day but know that it will go quickly. Research the company as best you can and have an idea of the job role you are applying for.
