More than just a number

Our recruitment team are a busy bunch. Receiving over 26,000 applications in the last year; conducting almost 11,000 interviews and successfully hiring over 1,800 colleagues – they're a lean, mean hiring machine!

It’s not about the quantity of applications though, it’s about the attracting the right person, for the right job. Somebody who can embrace our company culture with an ability to commit to giving the best possible service to our customers and our team colleagues.

As a tech-led business, we use artificial intelligence (AI) a cutting-edge, really clever online process to make recruitment more meaningful and seamless for the recruiter and applicant alike.

AI recruitment process, what can you expect?

Applying for a role with us is an experience, not a chore, with 83% of applicants telling us they enjoyed the interactive application process.

CVs are so last century and getting applicants to answer the bog standard questions can only tell us so much. We believe in order to get to know each other we start with an automated chat-based interview (mobile friendly of course and automated to remove any element of bias). The chat takes less than 20 minutes to complete and can be arranged at a time to suit the applicant. Heck, you can even complete it in parts if you decide to go and make yourself a cuppa halfway through.  

TIP: Keep it real – remember it’s a chat not an interrogation. Relax, be open and let us see the real you!

We guarantee a first stage interview for everyone that completes an application with us. Yes, you heard that right!

After you complete your AI application, you will receive a personalised feedback report highlighting your strengths, along with some coaching tips… Pretty cool right? Well, that’s what 73% of our applicants reported back to us, saying they felt more self-aware following their feedback report.

While you digest your initial feedback report, our humans (recruitment team – no robots here) review your application and if we think you’re a good fit then we’ll be in touch to invite you to the next stage of our interview process, either by phone or face-to-face (in person or via video call). Get through that and we’ll be asking you to sign on the dotted line.

So, if you’re looking for an exciting new challenge or a change in direction, but want to avoid the mundane, soul-destroying standard interview process – look no further, we’re here and waiting for you 😊

Don’t delay apply today!
