Remote interviews

If you're having a remote interview with us, it will be on Microsoft Teams.

When you get your invite, decide whether you'll do the interview on a desktop or mobile device and download the app. If you have any issues with accessing Microsoft Teams, please contact the recruiting manager.

On the day

  • Find a quiet space to do the interview, with minimal distractions if possible.
  • Dress as you would for a face-to-face interview, it will help you get into the interview mindset.
  • Check your camera, microphone and internet connection on the device you are planning to use. Making sure your device is fully charged or you have a charger nearby.
  • Elevate your electronic device so it is at face-level.
  • Give yourself plenty of time to join the online video call, we would recommend joining at least 5 minutes before to make sure there are no issues.
  • Have any documentation that is required for your role close to hand, including proof of your eligibility to work.
  • Have your phone nearby in case you have any technical issues, but make sure your phone is on silent to avoid disruptions.
  • Have a glass of water next to you.

Overcoming technical problems

Even with the best intentions and preparation, technology can sometimes fail.

If you have any problems connecting on the day or if your connection drops out during the interview, please contact the person on your interview invite. Similarly, if the interview panel have any technical problems, they will get in touch to rearrange the interview.

If a technical problem means you are unable to hear or fully understand a question that has been asked at any point of the interview, make the interview panel aware and ask them to repeat questions.
