The Recruitment Process​

This page gives you more information on our recruitment process, so you know what to expect.

Our recruitment process is the same for all permanent positions, and most contract positions.

Our recruitment process tries to create a positive and encouraging environment, giving you the opportunity to show us your skills and experience which are relevant to the position you're applying for.  We want you to succeed.

1. Send in your CV by e-mail to making clear which vacancy you are applying for.

  • You will need to be legally permitted to live and work in the United Kingdom - please confirm this when you apply

  • Please send us copies of any professional certifications gained in the last 2 years - we will ask for these.  If you don't have the actual certificates, links to the verification page(s) on the awarding body's website are acceptable.

2. First interview - at our Manchester or Edinburgh offices.  This will include:

  • More detail about the role you're applying for and about working with us

  • Your work or academic history and achievements

  • Your questions about the role or our company.

  • No practical test or assessment.

  • For technical roles, expect some technical questions to assess your skill levels in the areas you've mentioned on your CV, or are relevant to the role you're applying for.

We aim to be flexible when arranging interviews, and we will always try our best to work around any family, childcare or personal commitments to arrange a suitable date and time, but please do let us know about these as soon as you can


If you have a disability or any special access requirements, please let us know as soon as possible so we can work to accommodate these.


3. Second interview  - at our Manchester or Edinburgh offices.

  • More detailed discussion of your recent relevant work or academic history.

  • A practical assessment of your skills relevant to the position you're applying for.  Details will vary from role to role and you will be given full details and time to prepare along with your invitation to second interview.

4. Offer and references

  • Following second interview we will make an offer of employment to the successful candidate(s).

  • Our offer will be subject to being able to take up two satisfactory written references.

  • One reference must be from your last direct line manager, college or university tutor or other senior staff member to whom you reported directly. 

  • We will never contact your references unless you accept our offer of employment.

Your interview will be undertaken by your hiring manager, and at least one other person, who will always be one of our Directors & founders.

The whole process usually takes 2-3 weeks from receiving your CV to making you an offer.
