Frequently Asked Questions

We are dedicated to giving you a smooth, straight forward application process. Once you have applied, you will always hear back from us. Our process may take a variety of forms, but if we think your skills and experience are a great match, you will speak to someone in our dedicated Recruitment team to ask and answer some questions. We will hold either an in office or remote interview with you to delve a little deeper into your experience and offerings, answering your questions along the way. If you are successful at this stage, we may look to have further discussions with you to continue to build on our assessment.

Above all, we promise to provide everyone with equal opportunities and full and fair consideration. Where appropriate, we will make reasonable adjustments for candidates who disclose disabilities to us.

In line with who we are as a business, of course! New starters will go through an induction period in your first few days that will give you all the tools you need to succeed in your role. The content and length of this training will vary role by role, but we have a dedicated Onboarding Specialist who will guide you along the way.

We are also committed to continued professional development and provide all employees with the opportunity to study a learndirect course of their choice after passing probation! And it doesn’t stop there… we also have a bitesize training platform used across the business to allow our employees the opportunity to develop skills in their specific interest areas as well as any soft skills they want. Training is very important to us.

All candidates need to have the necessary right to work in the UK to be considered for one of our roles. We will also ask for evidence of this if you are successful. Some of our roles are subject to DBS checks, but this will be confirmed to you during the onboarding process. Finally, we also obtain references from your most recent employer(s) to verify your start and leave dates.

As we offer both in office and remote working, we provide our employees with all the tools they need to be successful. The equipment you receive will vary dependent on the role you do, but if you feel you need anything above the normal requirements, where appropriate, we will make necessary reasonable adjustments and if you disclose a disability we will work with you to provide the necessary reasonable adjustments to ensure you can do your job to the best of your ability.
