Make sure your LinkedIn profile is consistent with the experience you’re highlighting.  We like to have nosey on there to try to get a feel for your vibe before we meet you, so make sure it’s up to date.

When we invite you for an interview arrive on time. Think about where we are located and how you’re going to get to us on the day. Be smart, we’re a fairly relaxed bunch here at Shawston but we want to feel like you’ve made an effort so give those shoes an extra shine.

Think about the questions we might ask. We want to hear you talk about you, blow your own trumpet because no one else is going to blow it for you. Talk honestly and confidently about yourself, your skills, and your relevant experience. Why should we choose you over the competition? Let your personality shine.

Bring examples of your previous work with you, if relevant, we love to see what you’ve been up to in your previous roles. Ask us questions, about the role, about our culture, about our business, about our people. Ask away.

Although we’re interested in your experience and the skills you can bring to the role, we’re also rather interested in your personality and whether you will be the ying to our yang, align with our company values and be an all-round good egg.
