Online tests

For some of our roles you’ll be asked to complete a relevant online test. This could be numerical, verbal reasoning, psychometric or role specific. You can try out a few and get used to them beforehand here

Interview process

This is where we start to connect. And remember to be yourself – not who you think we want you to be. Throughout this process listen carefully and don’t be afraid to ask questions. Try and prepare yourself by re-looking at the role and thinking about what questions we might ask. It’s also your chance to tell us what skills and experiences you can bring to the role.

If you’re coming to meet us and have a disability or some specific requirements, just let us know in advance. We’ll be happy to provide any additional equipment or support if needed.

Telephone interview

This is our chance to get to know you a little bit better and to talk about the key skills we’re looking for. It’s also a good opportunity for you to ask questions and find out more about us. So try and read up on the job role beforehand.

First interview

Here you’ll answer motivational questions so that we can discover what makes you tick and ensure the role fits your ambitions. There will also be competency questions where you can draw on your work experience to demonstrate your qualities. Try to anticipate what skills we’re looking for and how best you can talk about them.

Second Interview

This may involve taking part in a selection event that can include role plays, presentations, questionnaires, tests or case studies to review.

After the second interview we’ll let you know if you’ve been successful or not and what happens next. Everyone interviewed will be contacted.

Interview Feedback

We will give you feedback after interviews, but unfortunately not after the CV screening stage. We'd like to, but the high number of applications we recieve means we can't get back to everyone.

Travelling to Interview

You can find maps, directions and everything you need to know about travelling to our sites on our locations page.

If for any reason you are unable to attend an interview then just call our recruitment team and they will see if it can be rearranged.
