Our Application Process

To make it as easy as possible for you to apply for our many roles, our initial application process is coordinated online.

If you see a vacancy you are interested in, all you need to do is click the ‘Apply’ button next to the relevant vacancy and the online application form will load.

What do we ask for?

At the application stage, we will generally ask for the following information:

  • Personal details such as full name, contact details and address
  • Professional details, such as your CV, employment history, right to work, availability/notice period, expected salary, and whether you live within a commutable distance to the role you’re applying for

If you need help creating a professional CV to support your application, take a look at our CV writing guide for manual workers, or download our free manual workers CV template.

What happens next?

If your initial online application is successful and meets the required criteria, we'll be in touch to discuss the role in more detail and talk to you about the next steps of your application.  

Usually that involves attending the relevant hiring depot for a face-to-face interview and more information about what the job involves.
