- When can I expect to hear from you once you’ve received my application?
If you have been shortlisted, you should hear from us within 7 days of the closing date.
- If I’m unsuccessful, can I request feedback?
Yes, we are happy to give feedback throughout the recruitment process.
- If I’m shortlisted, what happens next?
If you’ve been shortlisted, well done! We will contact you to give you further information regarding the selection process. You will be invited to a panel interview. In addition you may be invited to undertake assessments which could include occupational testing, presentations or specific job related assessments.
- How long does the whole process take?
The whole process should take no longer than three weeks from the closing date to the position being offered. However there are times when the process can take a bit longer or times when it can be quicker.
- Will I need to obtain a DBS Check?
We are legally obliged to carry out DBS Checks on potential employees whose job will involve caring for, supervising, training or being in sole charge of children or vulnerable adults.
We will let you know if you fall into this category and will give you instructions on how to apply for a DBS Check. Hexagon will pay for your DBS Check.
The completed DBS Check will be sent directly to you and we will receive notification that it has been sent out to you. A member of the Human Resources Team will then contact you to ask you to produce your Certificate for verification.
Further information on DBS Checks can be found at https://www.gov.uk/disclosure-barring-service-check/overview
- How should I prepare for my interview?
The first thing you should do is read through your application form again, along with the job description and the person specification so that you are clear of what’s required for the role. Do you know about Hexagon – what are our values?
Make sure you plan your route thoroughly and calculate how long it will take you to get here – arriving late will leave you feeling flustered even before you get here!
