What does your hiring process look like?
If the role you’re applying for will see you interact with our customers, you’ll need to undergo an assessment after you submit your application. This assessment will test your customer service skills. For all other roles, we’ll let you know if an assessment is needed during the recruitment process.
Your application will then be reviewed by one of our specialist recruiters who will give you a call to find out about your motivations and if they think you’re a good fit for the role.
The next step is to organise a behavioural interview with the recruiter and hiring manager. This is where you’ll get to showcase your skills, personality and work experience.
Last step is background checks before the final offer.
