Recruitment process

At Old Mill, we’re passionate about supporting our people, nurturing their potential and helping them grow their skills and enjoy rewarding careers.

Here’s a quick guide to what you can expect throughout our recruitment process. Our recruitment team will support you every step of the way and keep you up-to-speed with what’s going on.

Apply

Simply find the role you’re looking for and click apply. You can then fill out our short online application form and upload your CV and covering letter. Alternatively click here to apply now.

Critical reasoning test

To make sure you and the role are a good match, we’ll invite you to take part in a critical reasoning test. This will assess your ability to reason out arguments from given information either Numeric, Verbal or Abstract.

First interview

This is an opportunity for us to get to know more about each other and talk about you and the role in greater detail. Before your interview, think about the skills we’re looking for and how you’ve used them successfully in different situations.

Personality questionnaire

Here, there are no right or wrong answers. We’ll identify your preferred behaviours in the work place.  When combined with your answers to questions in the interview, we can determine whether we are the right fit for each other.

Second interview

If you’re ideal for the role, we’ll meet with you again. The second interview is also an opportunity for you to talk face-to-face with the team manager and have all your questions answered. Remember to relax and just be yourself.

Verbal offer

If you’re successful, our friendly team will call you to offer you the job verbally.

Issue offer

We then send an offer letter and employment contract out in the post. You just need to read, sign and post back the copies.

Checks

Our recruitment team will also carry out any relevant background checks and get in touch with your referees for their references.

Start

If everything goes smoothly our onboarding process will begin with a warm welcome and full induction. You can then look forward to great training and support throughout your career here.

"There are plenty of career development opportunities at Old Mill."
