Recruitment Process

For successful candidates, interviews will take place whilst the advert is still live, via telephone and video conferencing; so don’t delay getting your application in! We suspect the successful candidate will be working remotely, in line with government guidelines. However, they may be future requirements for you to visit our Head Office in Nottingham from time to time, to support customer requirements.

Recruitment Agencies

Whilst we make every effort to directly source candidates for our live roles, we do have a very small preferred supplier list on the occasion we may require additional support. We therefore we do not accept speculative CVs and/or cold calls to our Recruitment Team or Hiring Managers. Any queries should be directed to in the first instance.
