Hays

Recruitment Consultant, Professional Services at Hays

Application Advice: Really be honest as to your reasons for desiring to work in recruitment. If you want the high earning potential, state it. If you want to work with high performance type people, state it. Don't fluff about. But do really state on your CV your achievements. Proudly state achievements. That is very attractive as this is a results driven environment. If you like charity or play sports, state it too - it will separate you from others.

Interview Advice: Be confident, be positive, and be personable and professional. Dress for success. There will be role plays so practice beforehand. Sense of humour is beneficial too.

Fidessa

Technical Support Analyst, at Fidessa

Application Advice: It would be most useful to have a stem subject, however if you have examples of where you have used technical skills that may be relevant (SQL, Java, TCL...) then I do not think a stem subject is mandatory.

Interview Advice: Have examples ready for the prep questions with regards to support service (example of dealing with difficult people etc.). For the technical side, you do not need to know anything, just show your capability and willingness to learn.

Hays

Assocaite Recruitment Consultant, Civil Engineering at Hays

Application Advice: If you have a friend to get referred through then definitely go that way or through a consultant. If not then apply direct but be prepared for a telephone interview quickly.

Interview Advice: Lots of stages so be prepared to commit to the process, the internal team are really informative and really quick moving, always be on top of your game and ready to answer any questions they throw at you. The assessment centre is quite fast paced and very reactive so just go with it and if something goes wrong don't let it affect the rest of the tasks. Director interviews always seem the most daunting but now I work for them it's silly to think why I was nervous, they are all sociable people so just be yourself and keep the conversation flowing.

Application Advice: Ensure that you have an up to date CV, your reasons for leaving your previous employer are on there with the correct dates. Make sure that the CV outlines everything you have done - don't miss anything off. Also be sure that it looks good and is readable to the employers.

Interview Advice: Be yourself! The interview process is tough - there are 4 stages to get through but each motivated me to want to work for Hays even more. You need to demonstrate your potential to work in Hays not necessarily where you have previous recruitment experience. They also want to see your personality shine through as well as your commerciality.

Reed Global

Senior Consultant, Engineering at Reed Global

Application Advice: My main piece of advice would be to write a strong cover letter to include in your application. This is part of the online application process so I would recommend having one written ahead of completing the online application so that you have already proof-read and edited the content to copy and paste into the application. The cover letter should be targeted, relevant to REED, and include reasons WHY you're applying and what makes it an exciting opportunity for you. This is an opportunity to include a bit of personality, as well as demonstrate your interest in the role. A regurgitated cover letter that's really a re-written version of a CV won't stand out, but a personalised letter that includes your aspirations and career goals will.

Interview Advice: "Fail to prepare, prepare to fail" could not be more accurate here, and has been my mantra since my first ever interview when I was 17. My recommendations would be to; research (with time to spare, don't cram 10 minutes before the interview); prepare answers to standard competency questions; also prepare questions you want to ask; have all of this written down in front of you ready for the interview in a clear document that you can easily read, so when the time comes to answer questions or ask questions, you have something easily accessible to reference. James Reed's "Why You?" book is a fantastic resource for interview preparation and I would highly recommend leafing through this ahead of your interview too.

Reed Global

Recruitment Consultant, Business Support at Reed Global

Application Advice: Be sure to emphasise skills that are applicable to the job, particularly communication and sales as you are likely to be in a sales driven environment. Also, do your research on Reed as a company and the recruitment industry as it will show the Graduate Team at Reed you are serious about your application and not just applying as it is a Graduate scheme.

Interview Advice: There are a number of interview stages, two on the phone and one which is face to face. On the initial telephone interview, be clear and confident and make sure you prepare beforehand! The second telephone interview will likely be a test so ensure you completely understand the information and think about it analytically - don't be afraid to think outside the box! The final face to face interview will be with a senior member of staff in the business and this can seem quite daunting. However, don't be afraid of this stage as they are only trying to get an understanding of what you are like as a person and a candidate to see if you will do well in the business.

Business Services Apprentice, Facilities Management at Gowling WLG

Application Advice: You may have a load of work, you may have little work. But either way, you just need to get your head down, take it in your stride and realise it's not always going to be enjoyable - but that doesn't mean you can't appreciate what you're learning because you don't realise how important the basics are until you gain more responsibility.

Interview Advice: Research your company, make sure it's something you're willing to commit your life to for however long the apprenticeship is as that's what it takes. Don't stress about being asked questions, the interviewers will make you feel comfortable if they're as invested in you as you are in them.
