Hints and Tips

 
If you think you have the vision and talent to make one of our opportunities your own, submitting an application is your first chance to show us how good you really are. We receive thousands of application forms every year, so give plenty of time and thought to making sure that yours stands out.
 
  • Think carefully about the opportunity, scheme and/or business area you are interested in and your relevant skills when deciding what to apply for.
  • Use plain English - you are making a case for yourself and this should be presented as clearly as possible.
  • Give full details of your degree modules, previous work experience and relevant final year projects - recruiting managers will want to see exactly what you have done and how this fulfils what they are looking for.
  • Make sure you’ve filled in all the sections of the application.
