What is the interview process?

It is really important for us to find out if you are the right person for our business, and for you to find out if we are right for you!

We are always looking for great people, so we treat you as an individual. We don’t interview people en-masse.

 

Here is our typical process: –

CV

Submit your CV to us. You get bonus points for a covering letter.

If your CV is generic, acronym soup, hard to read or has spelling and grammar mistakes it unfortunately goes straight on the ‘No’ pile.

Make sure you tell us about you, the things you have done and why you are a good fit.

The telephone interview

If your CV and covering letter grabs our attention, one of us will call you at a convenient time and talk to you for 15-30 minutes.

We’ll ask you about you, your work history and what makes you tick.

There’ll be some exploration of your experiences, and perhaps a dive into one or more topics to see if you know your stuff.

This is also chance for you to ask us some questions.

We’ll see if you are a good fit for the business.

The face to face

If we like what we’ve heard in the telephone interview, we’ll invite you to our offices for a face to face interview. This will typically last between one to four hours, depending on what job role you have applied for.

You should come dressed smart, but casual. We don’t expect you to get suited and booted (this is not a trick). We’ll be dressed casually. We want you to be relaxed, like if you were actually at work.

We’ll talk through your experiences, and we’ll expect you to talk in great detail about your work.

The interview is a discussion, not a grilling. We expect you to challenge us too!

You’ll meet some members of the team, see where we work and what our set up is.

Typically at this stage, we’ll decide within 24-48 hours of whether you are the right person for the position and offer you the role. We may even invite you back for another interview.

So, if you like what you have read and think that you are the type of person that we are looking for and enjoy a challenge, we look forward to hearing from you.

Equality and Diversity

We recognise that an inclusive and diverse workplace is vitally important – where all employees feel respected, valued, and able to achieve their full potential. Not only does it inspire creativity and collaboration, but it’s also good for business. We celebrate our differences and believe our diverse skills, abilities and perspectives strengthen our culture and our overall performance.

We welcome applications from all suitably qualified people.

We are making a difference in the world you live in, come and be part of it!
