The Recruitment Process

We’re really pleased you’re thinking of joining our team at NLMHA. We know that it takes time, effort and hard work to find the right place to build your career. That’s
why our recruitment process aims to give you an opportunity to demonstrate your passion as well as your expertise.

It is very much a two-way process to ensure we recruit the right individuals but also for you to be confident that joining us is the right move for you.

Step 1 – The Application Process

We want our application and assessment process to give you a feel of what it’s like to work here and we’ll do everything we can to make sure that it runs smoothly and
gives you a positive experience.

Your initial application is a key part of the process as it introduces you to us so it’s worth taking the time now to reflect on your skills, experience and achievements, particularly those relevant to what we are looking for here.

Our application form is the medium that we use to in our recruitment and do not accept CV’s. This keeps the required information consistent and provides the
relevant information for us to assess suitability for the role. Our recruitment team will ensure that your application is dealt with efficiently and confidentially and that your data remains secure at all times.

We embrace diversity in our workforce so we’ll only consider factors relevant to the role you’re applying for.

If the interview was a success, a member of the Human Resources team will contact you to discuss suitable start dates and terms and conditions with you and you’ll then receive your contract.

On your first day, your line manager will provide you an induction and formally welcome you to the business.

If your application is not successful, we’ll contact you to let you know you haven’t been successful on this particular occasion.

  • We’ll be looking to get to know the real you and we’ll be assessing you on your attitude and behaviours, just as much as your experience and skill set.
  • Every interview will be different and we’ll tailor it to the job role, so have a think about how your experience fits with the job role.
  • Think about any practical examples you have from life and work that you might want to tell us about because it proves that your experience matches the job role.
