Bringing out the best in you

You’ve found a role for you and submitted your application. Now it’s time to find out about the B&CE recruitment process.

After you submit your application, one of our in-house recruitment team members will review it. Then, we’ll get in touch to discuss your skills and experience further.

A two-way process

We’re looking for people who share our values of Creating Simplicity, Showing Compassion and Keeping Promises.

We want to bring out the best in you. Interviews with us are a two-way process. We’ll give you the opportunity to demonstrate you’re right for the role and we want you to find out more about us too.

How we interview

We use a combination of styles:

Biographical interview

We’ll discuss your CV and employment history. You’ll have the opportunity to tell us more about what you’ve done and highlight your achievements.

Competency-based interview

We’ll ask you questions that help us identify whether you have the skills and competencies we need for the role you’re applying for.

Answering a competency-based question

Situation / Task / Action / Results = STAR

Preparing for a competency-based interview

  • For each example, write a bullet point for each of the STAR headings above.
  • Practice your answers.
  • You may be asked to complete an online ability or psychometric assessments as part of your recruitment process.
