Interview Advice

Firstly make sure that you have all address details handy and a route planned out. Make allowances for hold-ups in your journey and plan to be there a few minutes early to compose yourself before the interview.

It is well worth finding as much out about the company as possible beforehand, your interviewer will appreciate this and like to think people are keen and organised enough to know what they are trying to become part of. Company websites have a wealth of information available and this sort of research will prepare you well to ask relevant questions about the role and the company.

Ensure you have a good understanding of the requirements of the role, who you will be reporting to and what will be expected of you.

Dress appropriately, first impressions are very important!

Make sure that you arrive on time and make an effort to be enthusiastic, shake hands firmly, be confident, smile and look them in the eye. Let them know that you want the job and you are confident of your ability to exceed their expectations.

During the interview take your time when answering questions and try to expand your answers giving examples where you can, this is also something worth preparing, especially in relation to your work history and the role itself.

However it is also the interviewer’s opportunity to describe their company and the job function so make sure that you have planned some relevant questions and don’t be shy about asking them.

At the end of the interview be polite, thank the interviewer for their time and let them know your level of interest in the role.

Remember to contact your consultant following your interview so that you can tell them how it all went. The consultant will then be able to discuss your interest and suitability with the client, clarify your position on the application and take things forward in the way which is most beneficial to you both.
