Yes, but please make sure you only apply for positions you have the skills and experience for.

reword to: We encourage everyone to complete an online application unless there’s a good reason why you can’t. By applying online you are added to our applicant tracking system and this ensures that we can process your application in an efficient and timely manner.

interviewing and selection.

Our process involves a combination of competency based interviews and skills based assessments.

Few people love interviewing. We’ve tried to make the process as relaxed and pain free as possible. Our managers have all been trained in this area and their job is to help you display all your skills and personality. Our advice to all interviewees is to do your research on hireful (there’s lots of information out there), plan out your travel to the interview location and then just try to relax. Lots of interviewees try hard to be the candidate they think the interviewers want to see. This rarely works. Our advice is to be yourself, remember you are interviewing us as much as we are interviewing you.

Yes, we believe that testing to see if an applicant has the skills to perform well in the role is important to ensure we select the best candidate. We look to test both general skills (e.g. spelling, grammar) as well as produce content specific tests that mirror exercises you would be required to do if you were successfully hired for the position. These assessments come in during the interview phase and we always take great care to explain how they work and answer in advance any questions you may have.

If your role involves handling candidate data then all candidates will need to successfully pass a background check which is conducted by our 3rd party provider. If you have any concerns about this, we would encourage you to contact us and have a conversation about it at the earliest opportunity, via careers@hireful.co.uk.

working at hireful.

This will depend on the role. Some vacancies we are able to offer as having the potential to work completely remotely. However, most roles require you to work out of our Strixton head office. If a role is available to work remotely, we would normally detail this clearly on the job advert, but if you’re not sure you can always ask us about any given role’s potential flexibility. Working together is a key part of our success, so we like to see a busy and vibrant head office. However, we know our employees’ lives are complex and there are competing demands for their time, so we offer all staff the ability to work at least 1 day per week from home.

Our working hours are 9am-5.30pm on Monday to Thursday and then 9am-5pm on Friday.

diversity & inclusion.

We want to attract the best talent available. We also want to do our part to make a fairer society. With this in mind, we're committed to attracting people from a diverse range of backgrounds. You can read here about the specific steps we're taking to improve our ability to be an inclusive employer and how we are also helping other employers to improve in this area.

There is no obligation at all for you to tell us. However, we want all of our staff and applicants to be the best that they can be, so sharing with us that you have a disability or health condition could enable us to ensure you have the right tools and working environment to work at a high level. For that reason we encourage you to do so. For us, it is all about focusing on what you can do and we will help you harness your talents. If you want to discuss this please contact us at careers@hireful.co.uk.

other questions.

Unfortunately we cannot sponsor applicants to come and work in the UK. Applicants must be eligible to work in the UK before they apply for a vacancy with us and be able to provide evidence of this.

We pride ourselves in being a great place to kickstart your career and many of our roles do not require specific experience of our sector. We love hiring potential and upskilling people to help them realise their potential. Hard work and the right attitude goes a long way here.
