I’ve seen a great job advertised. How do I apply? Where do I send my details?

Applications for specific positions need to be made online. This will ensure your application reaches the recruitment specialist who is in charge of resourcing for that position.

All our jobs can be viewed on our jobs board and you can search by role or location and then you can apply by clicking on the 'Apply now' button next to the position you are interested in.

You will also need a soft copy of your CV available to upload as part of your online application. If you do not already have an account with us you will be prompted to create one.

Who will see my details?

At Arqiva, we take data protection very seriously. When you make an application online you will see our data privacy statement including how your data is used during your application and how it is stored. If you are not comfortable then you can cancel your application before you provide any information.

Your details will be reviewed first by a member of our recruitment team and then your CV may be shared with the hiring manager who wants to fill the role. Sometimes more than one person will be involved in the recruitment process as there may be more than one manager involved.

If at any point you want to change, update, edit or remove your details from our system you can do this by logging into your account.

What is the data privacy statement?

Arqiva is committed to protecting the privacy of all our employees and applicants.

This privacy statement describes how we collect, store, use and protect your personal data in connection with Arqiva recruiting processes and how we ensure the adherence to data protection legislation.

I have applied for a job with Arqiva already. Can I apply again for a different role?

Yes you certainly can. We are always happy to receive applications from talented candidates.

What happens once I make an application?

When you make an application, your details are stored within our recruitment system. This means that a member of the Arqiva in-house recruitment team, directly employed by Arqiva, will review your details personally. Due to high volumes of applications and the urgency of certain roles, your application will normally be reviewed within a few days - in some cases within a few hours.

We will review the details provided in your application together with your CV and any other documents uploaded. If your application is of interest then we will be in touch to talk about the opportunity further.

Whether you’re invited to an interview or not, you’ll receive an email from us at every stage of the process to let you know what happens next. If we feel that your profile is not an exact match for the opportunity you have applied for, but might be of interest for other areas, we will also let you know.

What’s the interview process like?

The interview processes will vary according to location and role, however it typically starts with a phone call from one of our in-house recruiters to collect some initial information about your suitability for the role. You might be asked for more detail about something on your CV, asked to clarify some of your experiences or asked more about your current situation. You’ll be given more information about the role and the process we’ll be following and told what the next steps are.

Typically following this we’d organise a face to face interview. This would usually involve meeting the manager and/or the recruiter and potentially some of the team you’d be working with in the role. Sometimes you might be asked to complete some online tests or asked to prepare a presentation or case study to bring with you to the interview.

Following interview, you will be made aware at the earliest possible opportunity whether you have been successful or not.

If you’ve got any questions along the way, please talk to the member of the Arqiva recruitment team who contacted you. We are here to offer support and advice. 

I’m currently working at Arqiva but have seen an interesting position - How do I apply?

We value the skills and experience of our colleagues and encourage internal moves that build careers and strengthen teams. Arqiva employees looking to move to a new role within the business have access to an internal jobs board which offers additional vacancies not yet available to non-employees. You can find this internal jobs board via the company intranet, and you should make your application through the internal system.

I am a recruitment consultant, recruitment agency or head-hunter, and I’ve got the perfect candidate for one of your roles. How do I get in touch?

We are often approached by external agencies who want to work with us. We have an internal recruitment function based on a direct sourcing model which means we are focused on connecting with great talent directly. We do, on occasions, engage with suppliers on specific roles, but this is on a case-by-case basis, and we have a preferred supplier list in place for these situations.

We do not accept CVs, candidate details or representations of individuals unless you have been specifically briefed on one of our roles by a member of our recruitment team. Approaching line managers or other Arqiva employees will not lead to preferential access for any specific role.

Emails, phone calls, letters and other forms of communication that present a candidate’s details will be received without obligation on our part. No implied contract will be created. We will consider ourselves free to contact any candidate at any point in the future without any obligation, fee or agreement in place between our two parties.
