Our recruitment journey

To ensure you feel prepared and informed at each stage of our recruitment journey, we wanted to share with you our three key stages.

Stage one: getting to know you

We are curious as to how you think and respond in certain situations, your natural preferences, the way you navigate environments and how you interact with others.

To help us explore this, we will be asking you to complete a short questionnaire which looks at behaviours, preferences, and experiences in relation to different aspects of your working/professional life.

Stage two: One way video Interview

This next stage is a one-way video interview where you will be asked three questions virtually either via sound or in written form. Instead of responding to a person, we would like you to use your computer, mobile or tablets camera to record and submit your answers.

There is no preparation required for this part of the process and for assurance, all video interviews are reviewed by our amazing Early Careers recruitment team who are all humans.

Stage three: In-person or online interview

This is the final stage of our recruitment journey and is where we get to meet you in person, either in one of our offices, or online via Teams.

For us the most exciting part as we love hearing all about you. We also want to ensure you are getting the most out of your recruitment journey, so it's important you are curious and ask us questions too!
