Everything was done quickly and efficiently. I was regularly contacted by an HR person informing me about the next steps of the process. Once you pass the first stages, you kind of want to go all the way. I really enjoyed the assessment centre day with all the different tasks and exercises that were arranged.
The main person is your Mentor, who is assigned to help and guide you through the four years of the scheme. He/she will read your reports, give you feedback and assist in any way with your concerns. In addition, the Sisk personnel on the projects are really experienced and willing to share their knowledge should you require them to.
Leaving my first placement, knowing that I had done my job, closing out all of the outstanding issues and handing over the areas that I was responsible for. Left the project having gained great experience.
The weather sometimes tends to be challenging especially if you are working outdoors.
