Living near the Siemens development at Alexandra Dock in Hull, Nicola heard a lot about the job opportunities it would bring. With a background in both renewable energy and manufacturing, she thought a career there would suit her perfectly.
Nicola applied for a role online and took an online test, but was unsuccessful. It was only through the team at the Green Port Hub that she was urged to try again.
“They explained that while Siemens had filled the vacancy for the role I applied for, there were plenty more opportunities that would require the experience I had. I was encouraged to apply for multiple roles. The team suggested I tailor my CV to each job and built an online profile to improve my chances. They helped me update my CV and gave me a few handy hints and tips for my next online application. The advice I was given was so valuable and I secured a role as a finishing operative.”
