The job advertisement
When we create each job advertisement, we aim to provide you with a clear and concise account of the specific role within the company and exactly what we’re looking for in a new team member.
This allows you to focus on applying for roles which best suit your strengths and experience and helps ensure that we receive applications which are best suited to each particular role.
Below we have created an outline of our recruitment process, from your application through to a potential job offer and the signing of contacts. Please read thoroughly before applying.
When applying for any job, remember that you need to sell your experience, your training, your skills, your personality and your suitability for the job in question.
By looking at the job advertisement, you can usually highlight several key skills that we’re looking for. Always aim to include these in your application.
You should always send us an updated, relevant CV in your application which includes your full contact details, your education, your employment history, skills and experiences and also contact details for your referees. Be concise, but use as much space as you need to.
Make sure you also include a strong covering letter and any additional information we’ve requested.
The screening process
Once we’ve received your application we’ll start the initial screening process. This will help us to identify which candidates would be most suitable for the job.
The screening criteria depends on the particular job described in the advertisement and will always follow the requirements we’ve included in the advertisement.
Diversity and inclusion is key to the success of our company. That’s why we aim to recruit a diverse team which can promote growth and success within each department.
Unless we have provided a specific deadline, we’ll screen any applications as we receive them. However, as they say, ‘the early bird catches the worm’ so please send your application to us as soon as you can.
Once we’ve worked through the applications we’ve received, we’ll narrow down the candidates. If successful, you can expect to receive a phone call from the recruiter inviting you for an interview.
We handle all applications with respect and in the strictest of confidence.
The interview process
There are usually two steps involved in our interview process.
The first consists of an initial interview with the recruiter over the phone. If you’re successful at this stage, you’ll be invited to a second interview with the hiring manager. This will be conducted on site.
Step 1: Initial interview
During the initial interview you’ll be asked to provide more information and might also be asked a few additional questions. You will also be asked to undertake a short ability test to help you better understand your strengths. You’ll receive immediate feedback on this test.
Step 2: Second interview
In the second interview you’ll meet the hiring manager on site and will have the opportunity to present your professional and personal skills, competencies and achievements.
You’ll also learn more about the job and have chance to ask any questions you might have about the job position and the company.
We advise that you thoroughly prepare for this interview so you can allow your skills and experience to shine.
Job offer & contract
If successful at this stage, you’ll hear from either the recruiter or the manager who will offer you the job. They will also outline any terms and conditions you need to be aware of before signing the contract. Be aware that often we have already covered these earlier in the recruitment process.
After we have offered you the job verbally, we will also obtain references from your former employer. Before we do this, we always ask for your consent to ensure the process goes smoothly.
Once we have done this, we will also send you the contract to review, sign and return to us.
