Our Application Process

Stage 1: Submit your completed application form by 5 pm on Wednesday 31 March 2021. Forms received after this time may not be considered. We will let you know by 26 April 2021 if you have progressed to stage two.

Stage 2: Stage two is a written exercise which will be sent to you on 29 April 2021. You will need to submit a written answer by 5 May 2021. We will let you know in early June 2021 if you have progressed to stage three.

Stage 3: Stage three is an assessment day consisting of individual interviews, a short presentation on a topic provided on the day to the interview panel and a networking lunch providing you with the opportunity to meet some of our directors. At this stage, we are hoping that we will be able to hold this as a face-to-face event at our offices. In the event that Government restrictions due to the coronavirus pandemic prevent us from doing this, we will revert to an online assessment instead. We have reserved three dates for the assessment day – on 23, 24 and 25 June 2021 and we will let you know by 1 June 2021 whether you have been chosen to attend and upon which date.
