    The first step for an individual who is potentially interested in joining Rentokil Initial is for them to do some research - it is really important to have an understanding of the work culture, the environment, the company focus and what the job you've found will actually be doing. Once this is complete, we advertise on a number of job boards and also our own Rentokil Initial UK careers site (

    Our recruitment team will receive your application and assess how well you suit the position before deciding which candidates to shortlist for a telephone interview. This will delve into why you want the job, your work ethic, company fit and your experience so far.

    Dependent on the position you are interviewing for, we largely run a two-stage face-to-face interview process with some form of shadowing or trial day so you can judge whether the position is right for you.

    We tend to move as quickly as we can through the interview process, to ensure you are not left waiting too long on our decisions. If you are the best candidate for the position at the end of the process, we will offer you a date to start with us and welcome you into the Rentokil Initial family.

  • I applied directly through the Rentokil website,the Sales Director then rang me to discuss the opportunity, the local manager then got in touch to arrange an interview. My second interview was carried by an Area Manager.

  • Find position your interested in and apply easy as that

  • You can apply through the website. You will be invited for a telephone interview which usually takes around half an hour. If successful you will be asked to attend an interview with the local operations manager. Once you have had that interview you will then be asked to spend half a day with a surveyor to see if you like the role and then attend the last interview with the Area Operations Manager. You will get a phone call after the interview from the recruitment team to tell you if you got the job or not.
