3 May 2018, 09:00 - 13:00 Edinburgh Airport Mock Interviews Event
Edinburgh Airport Scotland's busiest airport with over 11 million passengers each year is a vibrant, diverse and challenging place to work. The airport continues to grow and is one of the largest employers in Edinburgh. Have you attended a job interview recently and wondered why you didn't get through to the next stage? Applied for a role and heard nothing back? Or thought that competency based questions were really complicated? Here is your chance to practise those skills! Edinburgh Airport will be holding mock interviews at Regional Resettlement Centre Rosyth on the 3rd May. The airport is keen to hire people from the military but noticed a number of applications weren't getting through the screening process. By booking onto this session, you'll have a chance to get your covering letter reviewed and receive feedback on how well you answer a competency based interview, which is the most common type of interview. The airport will have representatives from HR, Fireservice and Operational Assurance. How to book To register your place for this event, contact the CTP Central Bookings Team on 0203 162 4410 or email RRCRosyth@ctp.org.uk.
