Assessment Centre

After we’ve reviewed your CV, application form and online assessments we’ll be in touch to let you know if you’ve made it through to the assessment centre. If you have, you’re not far away from joining the team and you’ll be invited to attend a half day assessment centre at Head Office. If you impress us on the day we’ll be getting in touch to invite you back to Head Office for a final stage interview.
