Tayla's tips on applying to MBDA

“It didn’t go well, but this is what I learnt from it – we’re interested in things like that as well.” Tayla Shelford, HR Advisor. To watch the full Gradcracker/MBDA webinar, click here.

Stage 1 – Online Application

The first stage of our recruitment process is an online application. You will need to complete your personal details and answer a few role specific questions. You will not be required to upload a CV.

Stage 2 – Online Assessment

Once you have submitted your online application, if you are eligible, you will receive an invitation to complete an online assessment. This will be a strengths based test.

Stage 3 – Assessment Centre

If you are successful with the online test, your application will be passed to the hiring manager for review and you may be invited to attend an assessment centre. This will run for half a day and consist of strength based activities and an interview.

Stage 4 – Offer

Successful candidates will receive an offer within 48 hours of the assessment centre. This offer will be conditional based on your grades, medical and security clearance.

Stage 5 – On Boarding

Prior to starting your role in September, you will be invited to a Pre-Joining day where you can learn more about MBDA, network with other new starters and meet your department/team.

You will also have the option to be assigned a ‘Buddy’ prior to joining who can answer any questions you may have and help you settle in. This is usually someone who is on or has previously completed the same programme.

When you join the company, you will take part in an induction on your first day with other early careers members to cover important information e.g. Health and Safety. Following this, all graduates will continue with a 3-day interaction event.
