Our selection process

We want you to feel comfortable with our recruitment process. The below steps will guide you through and make sure there's no surprises. 

Step One: Application

The first step of our selection process is for you to complete an application form. This consists of a CV upload, role related questions and other information we require such as your eligibility to work in the UK. 

All our adverts include a role profile, which sets out what we're looking for, so make sure you explain how your skills and experience match the the role profile.

Step Two: Shortlisting and invite to interview

Once the applications are in they're shortlisted using the criteria in the role profile. We then email all candidates to let them know if they've been selected for interview.  You can also track your application by logging into your account here.

If you're offered an interview, we'll tell you where and when to attend, who you'll be there, what to expect and if there'll be a written test, assessment or personality questionnaire.

Please confirm if you can attend, but if you can't, do tell us as soon as possible, we may be able to change the slot or do it online. 

Step Three: Interview 

Our big tip for the interview is to prepare! Get a good sense of the job and of Alliance by reading the role profile and our website.

On the interview day, give yourself plenty of time. Let us know if you're running late or can't make it by calling 03000 120 120 or emailing askhr@alliancehomes.org.uk.

Our interviewers will let you know what to expect, but ask for clarification if you need it, we want you to be comfortable.

The interview is also for you, so we leave time at the end for your questions. We're very happy to explain anything.

At the end of the interview, we'll let you know when you'll find out the result. This will be done via phone or email.

Step Four: Offer and Onboarding

If you're successful you'll be sent an email with a link to your welcome site. This has all the information you need to know about your first day, onboarding FAQS, our Colleague Handbook and, most importantly, it includes your offer letter and contract for you to sign and return.

Any updates to your paperwork will be done through this site, and you can send it all back all via the portal too.

If you have any questions about the process, feel free to pop us an email at askhr@alliancehomes.org.uk.
