The secrets to a successful application at Lovewell Blake


By: Helen Busfield, HR Adviser Date: 20 November 2017
Category: Article,Recruitment,HR

Applications are open for our 2018 intake of AAT and graduate trainees with positions available across the majority of our offices. The deadline for applications is 12 January 2018, so now is the time to start considering your application.

How to write the perfect application form

Tailor your application – specifically for Lovewell Blake. Research the Firm’s brand values and make sure these are reflected in your application. Use the job advert to highlight key competencies and add information which supports your assessment of what is required for the role.

Be specific – the application form will give you the opportunity to detail specific information and use practical examples. Think about it like telling a story; make sure each example has a start, middle and end, outlining what your task was, how you went about completing it and what the end result was. Provide information on previous work experience, whether this is a part-time job, internship, work experience or voluntary work. Your examples don’t have to be work related, think outside the box to include skills gained through studying or extracurricular activities.

Sell yourself – leave a good first impression. Think about what makes you different and unique. Don’t be afraid to shout about your successes. Tell us why you think you should be the next trainee at Lovewell Blake!

And finally…

Spelling – there are no excuses for spelling mistakes. Always ask someone to double check!

Investing the time to complete your application will pay dividends if you are successful at reaching our interview stage, as you will already have examples to recall on. Follow the link to our careers page where you will find our vacancies and start your application today!
