Our application and interview process in action

Always looking for the perfect match. Each of our roles call for different competencies, behaviours and levels of ability. Therefore, the format of our recruitment and selection process varies depending on the role and the individual candidate.

Application process

We want to give everyone the chance to shine, which is why we have implemented the following carefully thought out steps. If you have any questions, contact our friendly recruitment team.


Take a look at our current job opportunities and apply for the role that best matches your skill set. If there is not a job currently available to suit your talents, keep coming back, we’re always on the lookout for talented people to meet our evolving business needs.

Once you’ve found the role that you’re looking for, please write a covering message and email your CV to us. Make sure your CV outlines the relevant skills and experience needed for the role. We want to know all your best attributes. Send your application to talent@arqiva.com or take a look at our current live roles and apply online here.

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 tests and accustom yourself with them beforehand here

Interview process

This is where we start to connect. 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 beforehand by familiarising yourself with the role and think 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 in person 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 discuss the key skills we’re looking for. It’s also a good opportunity for you to ask questions and find out more about us as a company. So, always be well informed about 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 contact you if you’ve been successful or not and explain what happens next. Everyone interviewed will be contacted.

Interview Feedback

We will always give you feedback after interviews, but unfortunately not after the CV screening stage due to the high number of applications we receive.

Travelling to Interview

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

Job Offers

If you have been successful, someone from our recruitment team will contact you personally and talk you through the offer and what happens next.
