#What's the interview process?

Here's an outline of the process for the Travel Specialist roles:

1ST STAGE

Following your application, you will automatically be asked to complete a brief online questionnaire in order for us to get some insight into your working style. Your application is not complete until you have taken and submitted this questionnaire.

2ND STAGE

If you have the applicable skill set and travel experience you can expect to hear from our Recruitment department asking you to complete a more detailed video interview. This is an opportunity to tell us a bit about yourself, your understanding of the Travel Sales Specialist role and why you want to work for Audley. Don’t be afraid to show off and really convince us why this is the right role for you!

3RD STAGE

If all goes well with the video interview our Recruitment team will reach out directly to schedule a brief phone call. This call is primarily so we can answer any questions you may have but also for us to get to know you personally. We truly believe you are interviewing us just as much as we are interviewing you!

FINAL STAGE

The final stage will be for you to come into our office to meet us face to face. Normally these formal interviews should last about 90 minutes and will be with a member from the Recruitment team and the Hiring Manager for the role. Our interviews are comprehensive but conversational, we look for candidates who are inspired by our values and driven to be successful.

Here's an outline of the process for the non-sales roles:

1ST STAGE

Following your application, if you are successful you will then be invited to a phone interview to discuss your experience and find out more about the role you have applied for. We will arrange a time that suits so you have some time to prepare, and the call usually lasts around 20-30 minutes.

2ND STAGE

If you are successful in the phone interview we will invite you to a face-to-face interview at one of our offices. A hiring manager and a member of our Recruitment team will interview you, and depending on the role there could be a short exercise to complete. You'll also have the opportunity to take a look around our offices on the day to get a feel for our working environment.

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