The Seco Job Journey in 8 Steps

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

www.secosupport.com/recruitment

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.

(for more info on the DBS check see our previous blog post  http://secosupport.com/2022/02/what-you-need-to-know-about-the-dbs-check/)

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.

STEP 6 – BANK DETAILS, HEALTH CHECK AND RIGHT TO WORK

The final bits of ‘new job admin’ to complete are:

-Bank details

-Health check

-Right to work check

STEP 7 – INDUCTION AND TRAINING

Your references and DBS have been completed which mean we can book you into your training and induction week. 

STEP 8 – READY TO START

Congrats! All your pre-work checks and training and induction week have been completed. Following a successful shadow shift you will be fully prepared for your new role.
