Why work for us

To ensure you feel prepared and informed at each stage of our recruitment journey, we wanted to share with you our two key stages;

Stage one: getting to know you

We are curious as to how you think and respond in certain situations, your natural preferences, the way you navigate environments and how you interact with others.

To help us explore this, we will be asking you to complete a short questionnaire which looks at behaviours, preferences, and experiences in relation to different aspects of your working/professional life.

Stage two: In-person or online interview

This is the final stage of our recruitment journey and is where we get to meet you in person, either in one of our offices, or online via Teams.

For us the most exciting part as we love hearing all about you. We also want to ensure you are getting the most out of your recruitment journey, so it’s important you are curious and ask us questions too!
