Making an offer
If we’re a good fit for each other, we’ll give you a call to make you an offer. All offers are conditional subject to references and DBS checks, so we won’t be able to give you a start date right away. But we can kick off the onboarding process to start bringing you into the team.
During onboarding, we’ll put you in touch with a member of the HR team and run through all the necessary checks like DBS and referencing. You’ll have someone to call if you have any questions along the way. You can help speed up the onboarding process by making sure your references are in place.
Top tips to help your application go smoothly
- Get your references in place, speak to them in advance so they know our request will be coming.
- Let us know of any issues that might pop up on your DBS certificate, however minor they may seem. Even simple things may show up, but if we know to expect that it shouldn’t slow things down.
- Have you lived or worked abroad for 3+ months in the last 5 years? If so, you’ll need to provide a Good Code of Conduct. You can apply for one of these from the embassy of the country you were resident in.
