Defence Nutritionist, ESS at Compass Group UK & Ireland

Application Advice: Be ready to step outside your comfort zone! Be prepared to take the lead on projects and be confident in your ability. They won’t give you more than you can handle, but they will push you to excel.

Interview Advice: If you get a question that asks you to outline a time you underperformed, dealt with confrontation, made a mistake. Always remember to describe what you learnt and how you would handle the situation now with that experience. Or even how you resolved the issue. My opinion on the sugar tax (at the time was media coverage). Keep up to date with nutrition in the news or new studies and research.

Application Advice: Think about the things you are passionate about and the unique skills you have developed and how they might translate to some of the company values Merlin holds in high regard.

I was asked to explain why I wanted to work in Marketing, why Marketing at Merlin (so learn as much as you can about the company!) and what skills I thought I had developed through working in Hospitality that might help me become an excellent marketeer.

Merlin Entertainments

Operations Graduate, at Merlin Entertainments

Application Advice: Look at the competencies and the values of Merlin and how you exhibit these values. You will have online tests to complete so practice these (e.g. maths and verbal reasoning) before sitting the real thing. Video interview - make sure you give plenty of examples and explain yourself fully

Interview Advice: You have a large group task before a 1-2-1 interview. Get as stuck into the tasks as you possibly can as it will give you an idea if the job is for you and whether you are inspired by the work that you have to do. You don't need to be the loudest person in the room (I'm certainly not) but you do need to contribute and show why you are the right person for the job. Make sure that you get your point across but also listen and include people to join in. The 1-2-1 is usually with quite a senior member of management within Merlin but just don't let that intimidate you. Make sure you have lots of examples to back up why you are the best candidate. Most of all relax, and enjoy as it's a good fun day. Take advantage of the alumni graduates who come and visit at lunchtime and ask them plenty of questions.

Merlin Entertainments

Marketing Executive, Marketing at Merlin Entertainments

Application Advice: Be honest. Be smart. Make sure you know a bit of basic math and puzzle-solving skills. Be professionally dressed even on the recorded Skype interview.

Interview Advice: Be willing to work in teams and to take on tasks that don't seem directly geared toward the job you want. For example, if someone needs to work on a finance section but you want a marketing job, then show your diverse skill set by doing a bit of finance and contributing creative ideas like a marketeer. Think of any question you might be asked about your project/presentation and have an answer ready. Part 1 is working in a bigger group and time is a big crunch, so be careful. Part 2 is working in a smaller group, so make sure to flush out your ideas more fully and be ready to actually present to the interviewers. And be social at the lunch - make sure they know your name.

You will probably think you have done worse than you actually have.

Interview Advice: - Even if you think you do not have specific work experience relevant to the role think about university societies or part-time jobs as this is all something that they look at. I was specifically asked if I had a part-time job whilst studying at university (luckily I had). - Really study the job description and think of examples of scenarios that you may be presented with on the job. - Relax and enjoy. Everyone is really friendly and helpful!
