  • Take the time to understand contracting. Don't just look at the positives or the negatives as there are some of each.

    Pros

    Contracting with Huntswood can be challenging but it is a great opportunity to learn new skills, earn a good amount of money and enhance your CV by working for a big financial institution. It's also a great way to meet people and get loads of new connections. It can also be long term work - projects are long term and when one ends you look for the next. Contracting is becoming a popular long term career choice due to earning potential and flexibility to influence the type of work you take up.

    Cons

    The training period is succinct so make the most of it. In your development period you need to be ready to work longer hours as you'll be slower to meet your daily target. This should pick up realy quicky. It's important to meet your target consistently otherwise you will be at risk. But targets are achievable and you get support from your manager and the qualit assurance teams. There's also overtime available once your know your stuff, so you can earn extra days' pay every week!

    Advice to Management

    Continue to explain project demands to first time contractors clearly so they understand the environment - working on a big contractor project is different to permanent work or temping and it takes a little time to 'get it'

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Huntswood in February 2012.

    Interview

    I submitted my C.V for review on an attached link on the Company's website. A few days later, I received a call from requesting that I attend an assessment day. The assessment day consisted of a basic literacy/numerical test in a business suit alongside other hopeful applicants. It was then , followed by a 1 on 1 interview.
