Handy Tips

Here's some top tips for your interview day:

When attending, we recommend wearing whatever you feel comfortable in! This could be a suit or something more casual… As long as it’s not your pajamas, you’re probably in with a shot!
Know where you’re going. Jot down the address of whichever venue your interview is held at and note down our telephone number too (0330 088 3032).
Be on time and if you’re running late, let us know as soon as you can!
Ask questions. Your interview is your opportunity to ask whatever you need to and also to discover what you’re getting yourself into!
Finally, be yourself and enjoy it. We try to make the session as relaxed as possible and are usually looking for the right personality just as much as we’re looking for the right skills.
