How we recruit

We use a standard recruitment process for all our vacancies

We only accept applications for advertised vacancies. We don’t accept speculative CVs. All our jobs are advertised in the vacancies section of this website.

Recruitment process

We have a rigorous recruitment process that involves:


Visa applicants

We’re an A-rated sponsor under Tier 2 of the UK Immigration points-based system (PBS). If you require a visa to work in the UK or would like further information on the PBS visit the UK Border Agency website. Please be aware that we don’t provide financial support for any visa application.

We make every effort to eliminate discrimination, direct and indirect, from our recruitment and selection process. Read more about our diversity and inclusion policy.

Please use our careers support request form if you have any questions or support issues.
