Your recruitment journey - tips on applying for your job

Are you right for the job?

We're looking to recruit people with the right skills and attitudes, who are committed to helping people get the most from life through better everyday health.

Our recruitment process:

  • Gives you the chance to show us why you're the most suitable person for the job
  • Gives you the chance to ensure we're right for you
  • Helps us be consistent and fair to everyone so we can make clear decisions

What to expect

First, you'll need to complete an online application form and submit your CV.

To get to know you and understand what you can bring to role, we use a range of assessment methods in your interview depending on the vacancy you've applied for:

  • Competency based interview via phone or face to face
  • Presentation
  • Personality questionnaire
  • Assessment centres
  • Work based skills assessment
  • Ability test e.g. verbal and numerical reasoning

All offers of employment at Simplyhealth are subject to satisfactory references, identification checks, Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) and 'right to work in the UK' checks. The information you provide will be used only by Simplyhealth for the purpose of recruitment and selection.

We believe in equal opportunities

We only make employment decisions on the grounds of merit, capability and performance in the job. Personal characteristics such as age, background, disability, ethnic or national origin, gender, marital status, religious beliefs or sexual orientation, provide no basis for less favourable treatment of existing employees or applicants for employment.

We do not tolerate unfair treatment, unlawful discrimination, harassment or bullying in the course of work.
