Recruitment process

What to expect when you apply for a job at A New Direction

Shortlisting and interviews

After a vacancy has closed all completed applications will be reviewed by a shortlisting panel. We aim to complete shortlisting within three weeks of the vacancy closing. If your application is shortlisted, you’ll be invited to an interview. If your application is unsuccessful we’ll aim to be in touch as soon as possible to let you know. Unfortunately, due to the number of applications we receive, we are unable to provide feedback at application stage.

Interviews normally take place at our office near Moorgate and Liverpool Street stations. While the selection process differs slightly for each role, we often ask candidates to complete a short task and then interview with a panel of at least two members of the A New Direction team. We’ll give you all the information you need to know about the interview process for a specific role when we invite you to an interview.

Interviews are a two-way process: an opportunity for us to find out more about your skills and experience and suitability for the role and an opportunity for you to ask any questions you may have about the role and find out more about A New Direction and what it’s like to work here.

After the interview

After the interview, we’ll get in touch to let you know the outcome of your interview as soon as possible. This can sometimes take up to a week. If on this occasion you’re not offered the role, we’ll always offer interview feedback.

A New Direction is committed to implementing safeguarding through safer recruitment. All our roles require the successful candidate to complete a Disclosure and Barring Check, the receipt of satisfactory references and be eligible to work in the UK.
