#What's the interview process?

No matter which role you apply for, the interview process is pretty much the same. Typically, it breaks down into two main stages – here’s an outline of the process:

1st stage

A manager for the area you’re applying for will interview you by phone. It will last around 20-30 minutes and will focus on your work and travel experience, and why you’re interested in working for us. We’ll contact you beforehand so you’re ready and prepared to receive the call.

2nd stage

If you succeed in the first stage, we’ll invite you to a face-to-face interview at one of our offices. A manager and a member of our HR team will interview you. We’ll also ask you to complete some short tests. Before your interview we’ll ask you to take a short psychometric survey and on the day you’ll have an opportunity to take a look around our offices.

Contact us via Skype

If you aren’t able to attend an interview at one of our offices, perhaps because you’re based overseas, we can carry out an initial interview with you over Skype. Although, we’ll need to meet you in person at some stage during the interview process. Please let us know when you send us your application if this is something you’d like us to set up.

#How long will you hold my personal data for?

With GDPR law changes we will delete any unsuccessful applications 30 days after advising you that your application has not been progressed.

 If you have applied speculatively, we will hold your details for one year from time of initial application.
