Take a look at the three stages below to understand exactly what’s involved.
If the programme you’re interested in is currently closed for applications, register your interest, so you’ll be notified as soon as opportunities are available.
And if you need extra support, let us know. We value diversity and recruit people based on their strengths and what they can bring to our Group, rather than their experience.
We want our people to feel that they belong and can be their best, regardless of their background, identity or culture.
Step 1: Apply online
If you’re interested in one of our apprenticeship programmes, hit the apply button and complete the short application form. You’ll need to tell us a little bit about yourself and the qualifications you have.
If you meet our minimum entry criteria, you will be invited to the next stage of the process.
Step 2: Online Assessments
This stage is designed to assess your motivation, strengths, values and behaviours. There may also be assessments of your critical thinking, technical and mathematical ability depending on the role you have applied for.
You may need a pen, paper and a calculator for some of these assessments. So, have these handy before you start.
Step 3: Assessment Day or Interview
The final stage of our recruitment process varies depending on the apprenticeship you have applied for. This could either be an interview or an assessment day. These could take place virtually via Microsoft Teams or face-to-face – we’ll let you know.
Whatever form this final stage takes, our approach will be to get the best from you. We’ll do all we can to help you showcase your skills and let the ‘real you’ shine.
Take some time to think about why
We want to know how you feel about our industry and why it interests you. And since our purpose is to Help Britain Prosper, we’d love to hear examples of how you live our values.
Whether it’s your experience of volunteering or your ambitions to get involved in our charity work, how can you help us achieve our purpose while achieving yours?
Think about your strengths
Strengths-based interviews are a bit different to traditional assessments. We’d like to learn about what you’re naturally good at. So, make sure you’re ready to tell us. And if you’re invited to an assessment day, show us how you do things across various exercises – on your own and within a group.
