Our Recruitment Process
Our recruitment process is designed for both you and us to make sure we are a great fit.
Our two-way process enables you to showcase your skills and experience and for us to assess your suitability for our role. We also want you to have the opportunity to find out about our company and culture and make sure we are the right organisation to start or continue your career with.
Our step-by-step process
For the majority of our roles we follow a simple three or four stage process. We aim to complete this as quickly as possibly – usually within two weeks of your application.
1. Role brief
A chat with one of our recruiters enables you to find out more about the specifics of the jobs, ask any essential questions and discuss salary expectations.
2. Telephone interview
This short conversation covers a few key competency-based questions for us to start assessing your suitability.
3. Role play interview
For our operations roles only, successful candidates then move into a role play-based assessment where you will be tested in job-specific situations. This gives most candidates a great opportunity to showcase their skills.
4. Competency interview
Finally you will be invited to a final stage interview with the hiring manager to discuss your experience, skills and achievements to date. For some roles this may include a presentation, written task or test.
Our dedicated Onboarding Team will issue you with a written offer letter, initiate your screening checks and references and provide your contract for signing. You will also get access you our onboarding app which provides easy access to all the information you will need in the build up to your start date.
The Onboarding Team will be available to answer your questions and discuss any issues you have.
All of our roles require a certain level of screening, due to the nature of our work. These will include a criminal records check, a three year activity referencing check and reviewing proof of your ID and right to work in the UK.
