Paddy Power

Marketing Graduate, at Paddy Power

Application Advice: Be adventurous in how you sell yourself in the initial application. Don't be afriad to think outside the box. Do research into the specifics of the online gambling sector, focus on the retail sector is more common knowledge but could be a potential downfall.

Interview Advice: There were many of the routine interview questions that required some preparation of answers referring back to you're previous work experience. Also a lot of obscure questions that have no correct answer and seem to be more about how the candidate reacts and approaches the question. The key I feel to answering these well is by being relaxed and think methodically through it.

Paddy Power

Social Media Advertising Executive, Social Media Advertising at Paddy Power

Application Advice: Don't be afraid to be cheeky and stand out from the crowd. Answer the questions with smart educated answers but with a twist.

Interview Advice: Figure out why you want to work for Paddy Power over other companies, and what you think you would bring to the company over other candidates. That doesn't have to be an extensive knowledge of the industry or a huge interest in sport (although that might help) - for example, I had neither of the things mentioned above but I packaged that in a way that I would be a unique team member coming in with fresh eyes and sold it that way.

Application Advice: Go in with an openmind. There are many opportunties, areas and teams you may never knew existed before joining which may excite you. The energy industry has many barriers and a different way of functioning. In some ways we are a lot slower in our developement and marketing and in other ways we are pushing forward and innovative - we may not be what you expect. I would suggest doing your research on the company, trying to find out more about the roles in npower before choosing the scheme you think is right for you.
