CV & Interview tips

We receive thousands of applications each year, some good, some not so good.

Here’s what we think makes a great job application...

Make sure you answer each question fully, using clear evidence that shows you have all the skills and qualities the role requires.

Remember to save or print a copy of your application

You might need to refer to it later. You can also find lots of helpful online guides on the internet, so do a quick search before you start filling in your application.  

And finally, make sure you include your contact details, especially an email address and phone number!

What not to do on an application

Please don’t tell us any personal information. We don’t need to know your date of birth, age, or family status - these details take up valuable space on your application and it takes us longer to find the important stuff.

Your interview

Interviews are essential in helping us decide how well you can do the job you’ve applied for, and whether you’re a good fit for our organisation.

They’re also two way processes, so you do need to prepare and make sure you’re ready to tell us all about yourself, your skills, and your previous experiences. You’ll also have the opportunity to ask us questions about the role and what it’s like to work at M.A.G.

So, preparation is essential. Being nervous is natural, but the more prepared you are, the more confident you’ll be. There are lots of ways to prepare but we’ve put together a few tips to get you started:

  • Learn about M.A.G - Do your homework so that you know what kinds of questions to ask and what type of position you’re interviewing for.
  • Be ready - make sure you have a copy of your cv or application and bring a list of questions that you’ve already prepared, and some good examples that demonstrate your skills and experience.
  • Be professional - dress appropriately, arrive on time and make sure your phone is switched off. If something happens on the way to your interview let us know - we understand that things happen and we’ll probably be able to reschedule.
  • Make a strong impression - arrive early and confidently introduce yourself to each person you meet. Imagine that your interview starts the moment you arrive at our offices.
