Coronavirus update - early careers recruitment


In line with the UK Government’s developing guidance for the Covid-19 pandemic and in support of social distancing, we have been reviewing the management of our recruitment activity. We will continue to keep this under constant review.

We have been considering how best to manage the impact of delays to our apprentice recruitment process and potential delays to our graduate recruitment process. We are working through how to assess applications for apprentice positions and will be in contact with candidates within the next few weeks to inform them of next steps. At the moment all graduate interviews will be conducted remotely, and candidates will be contacted to make arrangements. We will also be in touch with those who have applied for summer internships and industrial placements for this year as the situation evolves. If you subsequently require any adjustments to the interview process described to you please raise this with your recruitment advisor.

We thank you in advance for your understanding as we adjust to this unprecedented situation.
