We want to see that you've thought about why you want to work for us in particular, and have thought carefully about your chosen programme and location.

It is critical that all colleagues support an ethical environment; valuing the rules and always acting and making decisions in accordance with regulations.
We'll provide you with the autonomy to make decisions, so we need to be sure you have the ability to critically evaluate and interpret information.
We've all faced times when challenges must be overcome to achieve a goal. What's important is how you react.
Technology is changing how we work and it is important that we embrace new practices and technologies and are motivated to know about the latest disrupters.
