Helping you to understand and manage your application
As you will appreciate recruiting for 4 different development programmes with 27 sub programmes over 85 different locations, we need to have a phased approached in order to take candidates through the recruitment process and this can often mean that some people will be waiting longer to attend Assessment Centres than others. The timetable is intended to help you to plan for your application and to understand the sequence of the Assessment Centres we will be running for the 2012/3 recruitment campaign.
It can take approximately eight weeks from completing an application form to actually attending an assessment centre. During these eight weeks you will need to complete an online questionnaire (Situational Judgement Test - SJT) and take part in a Telephone Interview. Candidates should expect to receive an invite approximately three week before the date of the Assessment Centre. Please note that Assessment Centre dates are subject to change and we do not guarantee that all candidates will be offered the opportunity to attend an Assessment Centre.
You will need to be pro-active during the recruitment process don’t wait for the closing date 31st January 2013. Our first Assessment Centres are in December 2012 and positions will be filled on a first come first serve basis. While we have Assessment Centres scheduled until June we typically finish our recruitment much earlier than this.
Your application is extremely important to us and we very much look forward to meeting you in the very near future.
