A bit about Crown Gas & Power

After World War II, Harry expanded the product range of the company to include the bulk supply of fuels and lubricants.

Preparing for your interview

We always want to see the basics of a CV and Cover Letter done well - good spelling and grammar, honesty and examples of previous work that is relevant to the position you are applying for.

If you have been successful in your application for a vacant position, you will be asked to attend an interview. Your interview will be competency-based, meaning your interviewer will be trying to find out about your relevant skills and experiences and assessing how well these fit with the role you are interviewing for. They will explain a little about the company's history and values and the benefits our employees enjoy.

In an interview we want you to impress us, but we also want you to be yourself. Allow yourself plenty of time to arrive around 15 minutes before your interview and always dress smartly. Try not to be nervous and make sure you tell us exactly why you deserve this job!

There will be time during the interview to ask any questions you may have about the company or the role.

Some key points to consider before your interview:

  • Before your interview, make a note of questions you think you may be asked and try to prepare and practice some of your responses
  • Familiarise yourself with the company and the job description, why do you want to work for Crown Gas & Power and what you can bring to the role
  • Try to be specific in your answers and provide examples from your past experience. The interviewer is interested in what you did, so if you worked in a team talk about your input
  • Be calm and collected, but most of all be yourself!
