Our recruitment process

It's simple and straightforward to apply for a job at Nest. All you have to do is submit your CV along with a few personal details. Your CV should be no more than three pages long and include enough information about your career and skills for us to assess your experience against the role's requirements.

Our recruitment process starts when you submit your online application.

The interview

If you're invited for interview it will be a competency-based interview with a minimum of two interview panel members. The interview may take place in person or online via a Microsoft Teams link, which we'll provide. Depending on the role there may be some additional stages to the interview process, such as a test or presentation. If there are any additional stages, you'll be made aware of what they are prior to your interview.

We use competency and behavioural based questions in our interviews and recommend you prepare following the STAR technique, which stands for Situation, Task, Action and Result. There's lots of information available online about the STAR technique.
