If you are shortlisted you will be invited to a competency-based panel interview. You may also be asked to complete psychometric and skills assessments.

Reference checks

If you are our preferred candidate, you will be required to provide at least two referees for us to contact. Once we have consulted your referees we will discuss the outcome with you.
