Registration Process

How to apply

We offer our candidates a straightforward, simple registration process and will talk you through the paperwork required and proof of ID documentation to be provided. Our first objective is to get you into a job as quickly as possible.

Below is an overview of what will take place and some tips and advice on how to prepare.

 

  • Register online

    Create an account online here. You will then receive a confirmation email allowing you to set your account password. Then you can start applying for jobs right away.

  • Phone call with the NRC

    The first stage of the process is talking to our NRC on 01858 412 767. They will work with you to find the following information:

    • Which area(s) of the UK you want to work in
    • Which are your preferred types of work
    • What is your work history? Remember to include any gaps in employment, and be prepared to explain them
    • Have your address, telephone number, National Insurance number and proof of Eligibility to Work available

    After speaking to the NRC, if you are attending an interview we will let you know the date, time, location and who you are meeting.

  • Interview with the employer

    Here are our hints and tips for the interview:

    • - Arrive at the interview about 10-15 minutes before the agreed time - why not do a dress rehearsal the day before so you know how long it will take to get there?
    • Be prepared, have a record of your work history to hand, including dates and any break in employment
    • Allow an hour for the registration process and interview
    • Bring your proof of eligibility to work, address, telephone number, National Insurance number and bank details with you
    • Dress smartly and ensure you're well groomed - you want to give the interviewer the best impression
    • Don't forget to smile! You'll come across as friendly, approachable and enthusiastic
    • Listen carefully to questions and allow the interviewer to finish speaking before responding
    • Don't worry about pausing before you answer a question as this shows you are considering your response
    • Where possible, give practical evidence to support your answers
    • Never criticise former employers or work colleagues
    • Maintain eye contact, relax and show interest in what the interviewer says
  • Be prepared with research

    Be prepared for questions such as:

    • What do you know about our company?
    • What interests you most about the role?
    • Why should we appoint you?
    • What is important to you in a role?
    • What was your greatest success in your last position?
    • How would your manager or colleagues describe you?
  • Ask any questions

    You will usually have the opportunity to ask questions at the end of the interview - think about what is important to you.

    • What ambitions do you have for the Company?
    • What are the company’s values and culture?
    • Will there be any training with the role? If so, what will it be?
    • How many jobseekers are you interviewing for this role?
    • When do you think you'll make a decision?
  • Finishing the interview

    • Make sure you have confirmed your interest in the job
    • End the interview with a handshake, remembering to thank the interviewer for their time and that you look forward to hearing from them soon
