It doesn't mention props on the email but a few people on different boards have said that when they had their assessment days earlier in the year that a lot of people took posters, handouts and props.  I'm not sure whether they had to do a presentation on the same subject.
 
Don't know whether it will help with the presentation to have something to look at rather than just talking???  Can't decide what to do.  It's only got to be 2 minutes long so we might not have time to get it in.
 
have you decided what group you're gonna do it on yet?

Hey lisa! well its good to know theres not just me going! ive done this kind of thing before, they arent looking for props etc what they want to see if that you speak confidently and that you can be passionate about something and promote it well through your presentation. basically to show you can sell trips etc at welcome meetings. its all about confidence good wording and sales technique.

Think I'm going to do the family as well. Not quite sure. You'd be surprised how quickly 2 minutes goes as well.

Thats a good question...
 
I would maybe say both as the 'work for us' links on both websites take you to the firstchoice4jobs site.
 
I'm hoping there's not many "tell me about a time when you...." questions if we get through to the 1on1 interview stage, I hate those lol.
 
Does anyone know if the hotel at gateshead has a car park? I'm presuming it does but dont wana get there n have to spend ages finding somewhere else to park? x

Also,  I was initially looking to apply to be a Freestyle Rep but could only find the one site, do you think they will ask us about it when we get there? x
