Interview hints and tips

Show that you understand the business

Research the company history, current situation, and future plans. This will both help you to deal with any questions you may be asked relating to your knowledge of the company, and  help you see if you think the culture is a good fit for you.  

Demonstrate your skills

Read the job description fully and prepare some worked examples of your relevant experience. This is your chance to demonstrate that you have the skills necessary to handle the role. Think about specific examples of how you used these skills effectively in past roles.


Consider how you'll answer common interview questions and prepare some questions you would like to ask your interviewer.



If you have any questions throughout the process please contact your Recruiter or [email protected]
