Our Application Process
At Recite Me we endeavour to keep our application process transparent, fair and relevant.
While each vacancy has its own set of essential and preferred prerequisites, your attitude and integrity mean just as much to us as your qualifications and experience. So our hiring process is geared not just around your work history, but on getting to know you and vice versa, so we can both be confident of a good fit from the off. From finding your perfect job opportunity to receiving an offer, here’s what you can expect from our application process.
What Should I Include in my Application?
You should express your interest in any vacant role by following the instructions on the job advertisement. Usually, this will include submitting:
A cover letter detailing your suitability for the role and why you are interested in working at Recite Me (optional).
We recognise the value of a diverse workforce and are proud to be a Disability Confident employer. If you are a person with a disability, you are welcome to confidentially self-identify specific information in your application. But this is not a requirement, nor will it affect the standing of your application.
What Happens After I Apply?
Once the closing date is reached, your application will be reviewed by the relevant department leaders who are specialists in their respective fields. A shortlist of candidates will be chosen and contacted and invited to an interview.
How Long Will it Take to Receive Feedback?
We don’t like to keep candidates waiting, plus we’re always keen for our new recruits to join us as soon as they are available.
All applicants will be contacted within 72 hours of applying for the role to advise on whether their application has been successful. The same 72 hour policy applies to each stage of the interview process, so you’ll never need to wait longer than 3 days to hear whether you’ve progressed to the next round or been successful in receiving a job offer.
What is the Three-Stage Interview Process?
1. An Introductory telephone interview with the hiring manager
Our telephone interviews are designed to ensure the hiring manager passes along candidates with a genuine interest in the company and the role, and that they have the relevant pre-requisites to proceed to the next stage. You can expect to be asked about your work history, past achievements, goals for the future, and why you want to work at Recite Me. We usually include some basic ‘getting to know you’ questions too. Recite Me needs to be right for you also.
2. Task-based interview with the manager and wider team
We use task-based assessments to measure skills and abilities that you’re not necessarily able to demonstrate in a phone interview environment. This stage of the process is designed to show what values and attributes you can bring to the role, we are very interested in finding out how you approach the task. It’s also an excellent opportunity to meet some of the managers and other team members you’ll be working with if your application is successful.
3. Final stage interview
In your final stage interview, you can expect to be asked about how you feel the process has gone so far, more about your long-term goals, and some questions about how well you think you meet the criteria, both in terms of aptitude and cultural fit.
