    Interview process

    I had to give a 5 minute presentation on a topical news issue of my choice. I then had a panel interview with the head of HR and 2 manages from the buying department.
    The interview was more relaxed than I thought it would be, we all made a few jokes and I wasn't too nervous.
    They asked me competency based questions, questions about Nissan, my personality and hobbies, how I would cope with certain scenarios and difficult people, and whether I was willing to travel and relocate.

    Interview tips

    Prepare answers to obvious questions, research the company.
    Be relaxed (although not too relaxed). Remember the interviewers are human! They might have kids, they have feelings and worries too, and they probably go down the pub on a Friday night.
    Be confident. Don't be worried to tell them about your achievements and what you like about yourself. If you are confident you will be great in the role, they are likely to believe it too.

    Experiences at the assessment centre

    We had to take part in 3 group activities and discussions. We had to make a group decision, place items in order of value, and lastly we were each given a fictional candidate for a job and had to persuade the rest of our group that our candidate was the best for the role.
