Interview: Tips & Advice


"It is quite an intensive interview process, but it is worth it as there are great opportunities to be fast tracked, and then you get to skip submitting another application later down the line. Top tips: never lie on your application form and let your passion/enthusiasm for a career in property shine through."

"I applied with an online application, which did seem long to complete, but I would advise candidates to stick it out. I then did a telephone interview where I was asked both competency and technical questions. For this I would advise candidates to prepare thoroughly and be commercially aware."
