After you apply and if you meet our criteria, we'll arrange a short telephone interview with you to get to know you better and to ask a few key questions.
If you’re successful in this, we'll invite you to a face-to-face interview which will involve questions to see how you would handle certain situations. Your interviewer will also go through your application and paperwork to ensure everything is there, so please remember to bring your ID and all other requested documentation.
