A great starting point when preparing for an interview with us is to carry out research on the role you are applying for and the company itself. We are an easily accessible company on the web and you will find plenty of resources on our multiple UK websites, our social media platforms, our blogs and articles, our financial reports and via press and PR releases. Don't just read up on facts and figures, find aspects that interest you and you can discuss with enthusiasm.
Some of our roles will ask competency-based questions, which should be given great thought before the interview. Our hints and tips page at the end of this answer can tell you all about what is and how to answer a competency-based question. We'll want to know why you want the job, as well as asking questions to make sure you both have the skills for the job and to fit the culture.
If you've prepared well, you can enter the interview room knowing you will get a warm reception immediately from our managers. We do our best to create an atmosphere which encourages you to perform at your best. You should be yourself, we aren't hiring another version of yourself who has answers scripted to the word, we are hiring you and we take a great interest in who you are.
