Company Updates

  • Capita Careers Blog: When searching for a job, there's a number of important criteria to take into consideration before making a decision. While most of these will be practical considerations, such as the business’ geographical proximity to your home or the reputation of the firm, there are more abstract ideas to take into account too. http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQlXS

    Why job hunters should find firms that share their aims

    In recent years, it's become increasingly apparent that job hunters are more concerned with their prospective employer's aims and values than ever before. In fact, a recent LinkedIn survey found that for over 50% of UK professionals, sharing their employer's aims and values is a deal breaker when it comes to accepting a job offer.

  • Capita Careers Blog: It is fair to say that in most companies, the ambitions of the IT department and those of the marketing department differ quite significantly. http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQ4sy

    The role of IT in the marketing department

    As mobile apps are becoming ever increasingly important to marketers, IT is required to implement the necessary software to support these activities. IT also has an important role to play in keeping abreast of changing technologies, alongside maintaining an awareness of how these might be of benefit to future marketing strategies.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Capita (Glasgow, Scotland).

    Interview

    Telephone interview was pretty straight forward, general chat about the role then 1 competency question at the end. This was followed by an assessment day which consisted of some role play and then a very brief one to one.
