Our Recruitment and Selection Process
In the first instance we will carefully consider all the expressions of interest we receive. We will invite for a first stage informal discussion, those that we consider may be suitable for one or more of the job roles. This will provide prospective candidates with an opportunity to meet staff and learn more about the job.
Following this we will decide who to invite back for a second stage interview. This will be more formal and structured with set questions which we will be looking for candidates to respond to. We will ask shortlisted candidates to fill in an application form at this stage.
After the second stage interviews have been completed, we will make appointment decisions. Feedback will be provided to all who have been formally interviewed.
We believe a hard day’s work deserves a fair day’s pay. So, along with over 7,000 UK employers we have pledged to never pay anyone who works for us less than the ‘real living wage’ as determined by the Living Wage Foundation. You can learn more about this initiative here.
