I applied online. I interviewed at Southway Building & Roofing (United Kingdom) in Sep 2020
InterviewInterview held remotely over Webex to three senior members of staff. Began with a short (10 minute) presentation on a topic I was informed of one week in advance and concluded with a number of questions relating to my experiences in project management.
There were 9 questions asked. 6 of these questions were related to my experiences in dealing with project management scenarios, e.g. how I solved construction issues on site and what project I was most proud of and why. The remaining questions were related to my presentation topic and about how Housing Associations and their internal departments operate which required an unexpectedly niche bit of knowledge.Answer Question
