Trainee Recruitment Dimensions
When you apply to us for a training contract, we feel it is important that you know what we are looking for. We have been running a training contract programme for many years and really know what makes a great trainee.
We have created this list of ten key dimensions we think are most important.
ABILITY AND DESIRE TO USE LOGIC
Trainees need to use logic and intellect to understand how things work. They can apply prior knowledge to improve decisions and processes.
Trainees have the ability to identify relevant factors, understand interdependencies and structure complex information in an insightful way.
PROFESSIONAL SERVICE ORIENTATION
Trainees understand what it means to provide a quality professional service and have the ability to apply this understanding to deliver the best work possible.
Trainees deal with complex concepts and have the ability to concisely explain these complex concepts.
Having strong control of a task is important. Trainees feel comfortable taking full responsibility of their work and for it to be delivered on time.
Attention to detail and an ability to follow precise procedures and identify inconsistencies in large amounts of information is a key skill required of trainees each and every day.
WORK ORGANISATION AND PLANNING
To work effectively and efficiently, trainees need the ability to organise work within the given timeframe and set priorities in the context of objectives.
ABILITY TO PERFORM UNDER PRESSURE
In a client-focused environment having the ability to perform at your best under pressure is vital. Our trainees are people who can maintain composure to ensure the proper execution of the job.
People matter. Exhibiting a high level of integrity and showing respect to others is a must.
Great trainees have the willingness and ability to figure things out on their own and an understanding of when to escalate and ask for help.
