What happens when you apply for a job with us?
How does the process work?
How long will it take?
Starting a new job can be daunting. So much paperwork to complete. Read on to help make the process easier to navigate.
STEP 1 – APPLY
Apply for a job through our website
Your application will then be considered by our senior management team and you will be advised if you have been shortlisted.
STEP 2 – INTERVIEW
Following your successful application form, you will be invited to an interview. You will be informed shortly after the interview if you have been offered the job!
STEP 3 – REFERENCE CHECK
You will be asked to produce 3 references, 2 who know you in a professional capacity, and 1 who knows your character. Our admin team will then contact your referees on your behalf.
STEP 4 – DBS CHECK
A link from Ucheck will be sent which asks you to fill out some basic details for your DBS check. Admin will also contact you to arrange your documents (passport/drivers licence etc) to be verified.

STEP 5 – WAIT!
Once your DBS has been submitted and your referees contacted, the job journey is paused whilst we wait for them to be completed. This can take anywhere between a few days to a couple of weeks.
