How to secure a job at Fairways

Some tips that will help you show us that you’re the right person for the job

Make your application stand out

It sounds simple, but your application form is your first opportunity to tell us who you are and why you want to work with us. Take the time to complete every section and give us as much information as you can:

  • Your hobbies and interests are really important to us.
  • Highlight all your relevant experience.
  • Don’t forget to tell us about any unpaid experience you have.
  • Report writing is a big part of every role. Show us your skills by laying out your application clearly, using correct spelling and grammar.
  • Make sure to attach a current passport-size photo.

Shine at your interview

We understand that people get nervous at interviews but we know that we’ll get the best from you if the atmosphere is more relaxed. We’ll do our best to put you at ease, and there are some things you can do to prepare:

  • Consider your clothing and present yourself appropriately. We think ‘smart/casual’ is about right.
  • Turning up in your gym gear isn’t going to cut it!
  • Prepare well for your interview and turn up in good time.
  • Be aware of the work Fairways does, especially regarding the service area you’ve applied for.
  • Think about the questions you might be asked. Take clues from the job advertisement, the qualifying criteria and the accompanying job description.
  • Depending on the role you’ve applied for, we’ll put as much value on your effort and thought process, as we will on the right answer

Be organised

If you have certificates for the qualifications you’ve listed on your application form, we encourage you to bring copies with you. Bringing relevant identification documents and your registration certificate and number for NISCC (if you have one) will also show that you’re well organised.
