Job application FAQs

We try to answer some of the common questions about applying for a role with us. If you can't find the information you need, please contact our personnel team. 

Do I have to apply online?

Yes, please apply online unless you are unable to do so. If you need information about a vacancy in a different format, please contact our personnel team; we’ll do our best to provide this for you. 

Do I have to complete the diversity monitoring form?

No, you don’t have to complete the form, although we encourage you to. The information you share is anonymous; it is completely separate to your job application. We use consolidated data to help us develop strategies to further improve our diversity, and to help us measure the impact of these strategies over time.

Can I apply for more than one job?

Yes, it is possible to apply for more than one role, although you should ensure you only apply for jobs that match your skills and experience.

Can you send me feedback about my application?

We can’t provide tailored feedback on every application, given the high number we receive. We will, however, always contact you with the outcome of your application. 

We can provide feedback if you’ve had an interview with us. Please contact our personnel team if you would like this.

I’m at university. Can I work for you during my sandwich year or year in industry?

Yes! We usually have several one-year industrial trainees starting each summer.
