What is the selection process usually like?
Apprenticeship: if you’re a suitable candidate, we’ll invite you to an interview to get a better picture of you and clarify any outstanding questions. The interview is an opportunity for us both to get to know each other, meaning that you too get the opportunity to ask any questions. Depending on the site, we might carry out an initial recruitment test.
Integrated degree programme: if you’re a suitable candidate, we’ll invite you to an assessment centre to get a better picture of you. Any outstanding questions can be clarified in the subsequent interview. If you’re successful at the assessment centre, we’ll recommend you to our contact person in the relevant GLS region. The interview is an opportunity for us both to get to know each other.
Who can I contact for more information?
