Important application information
The deadline for applications is 31st October 2019. During your application, you will be redirected to our partner Headstart - a diversity recruitment tool, designed to eliminate unconscious bias.
The first step will be to complete a profile and a 2 to 3-minute psychometric test. Include lots of relevant info and keywords in your profile. The more information you add to your profile, the stronger it becomes. Dedicate some time to completing your profile and think about the skills that will make you stand out.
Your application is incomplete if you fail to complete your Headstart profile and psychometric test.
We’ll assess your suitability to the role based on your profile and psychometric test. We’ll notify you if you’ve made it to the next stage (the Discovery Portal) via email, within 5 working days.
The Discovery Portal is a series of short online assessments to help us get deeper insights into your skills and abilities. Typically, it takes 1 hour to complete, but there is no time limit. You can stop and start, without losing progress.
If you seem like the right fit across all areas, we’ll invite you in for an interview and assessment in virtual reality, within 5-10 working days.
