We also operate a talent pool for more popular roles at Bromford. The talent pool is a way of registering your interest for specific types of work and allows you to complete the application process. Once we have gone through the short listing process we will get in touch with successful applicants to invite in for assessment. Suitable candidates' details will then be kept on file in readiness for when a role becomes available.
- When can I expect to hear back from my application?
- Each role posted on our website has a closing date. Once the closing date has passed we will begin the review of all applications made. Each role does vary depending on the number of applications made, however we aim to advise candidates if they have been successful or unsuccessful within 10 working days of the closing date.
- If my application is unsuccessful, can I request feedback?
- Unfortunately we are not able to provide feedback on your application if you are not selected for interview due to high volume we receive.
- What is the selection process?
- Once the closing date has passed, applications will be reviewed and scored against the criteria in the job profile. Candidates will need to demonstrate that they match all of the key competencies required, as well as having relevant experience for the position. All applications are reviewed using a fair scoring system so all candidates are treated equally.
- What will the process be if I am invited to interview?
- If you have been successful in being invited to an interview/assessment someone from our recruitment team will call you to inform you of the details and also what the next steps of the process are. The recruitment team will talk you through any additional tasks you may need to prepare for in advance.
- What can I do to prepare for my interview / assessment?
- Ensuring you have prepared well for your interview is as important as the time you put in to your application. You don't get a second chance to make a good first impression so make sure you take the basic steps before attending your interview:
Research our company,
1. Ensure you know where exactly your interview is taking place. We will always send you a map, full address and postcode for where you need to go on the day of the interview.
2. Read over the job profile and any additional information we have sent you before-hand. The interviewers will be looking for answers that reflect your ability to perform the tasks outlined.
3. Most importantly, relax and be yourself – we are looking for the real you!
- Why do you monitor equal opportunities information and what do you do with my information?
- The information which you are asked about for gender, ethnic origin, age, religion, sexual orientation, marital status and disability when you complete an application form is used to help Bromford to monitor the effectiveness of its recruitment policies and improve our service. It is not used as part of the selection decision.
All your information is treated in the strictest of confidence and only used for its intended purpose.
- Are there any checks I need to go through before being employed?
- All successful applicants are required to provide two references (one of which should be from your most recent employer); right to work in the UK documents (these should be provided at interview). Dependant on the nature of the role you may also be required to undergo a DBS check.
- Will you contact my references before I am offered a position?
- No, we only contact references after an offer of employment is made to you. The offer of employment is conditional to receiving satisfactory references.
