The interview process
If you are offered an interview, we will contact you to arrange a suitable time for you to come in to meet our managers to chat about your interest in the role and answer some more questions about yourself.
On some occasions managers may ask to see you again for a second-stage interview involving people we support. This gives you a chance to meet a person we support and see the sort of things that happen within our busy services.
If you’re successful, we’ll need you to provide us with a few things before you can start, so we’ll send you some forms to fill in at the appropriate time.
- Proof of your legal right to work in the UK (your passport/proof of residence within the UK)
- Your bank details and NI number (so we can pay you and make sure you pay the correct amount of tax)
- A satisfactory enhanced DBS check (all employees who work directly with people we support need to have this check by law. We’ll pay for and send this off on your behalf)
- A completed Health Questionnaire (so we can provide you with as much support at work as you need, if any)
- Two satisfactory references (one must be your current or most recent employer). These CANNOT be friends or family members.
