Will I receive an acknowledgement that my application has been received?

Every application is acknowledged. You should receive an automated acknowledgement email within five minutes of submitting your application. We aim to send every applicant a personalised email with the outcome of the application as soon as we have an update. Alternatively, you can log into your account whenever you wish to check on the progress of your application.

How can I update the information or CV you hold for me?

You can visit our careers page any time and log in to your account and update your personal details or your CV or attach a new/updated one.

It’s also a really good idea to log in to your account and set your preferences, to receive notifications for positions of interest in locations of interest. If you opt to receive notifications we can contact you about similar opportunities that arise so that you can decide if you’d like to apply. You can also set up email alerts to ensure you are one of the first to know about new opportunities.

Can I apply for more than one job at a time?

You can apply for as many jobs as you feel match your experience and skill set.

Why was my application rejected?

We receive many applications per day and therefore have to apply specific selection criteria. A rejection should never be taken as negative and final. We will retain your details and assess your CV against future positions. Our database indexes your CV and matches keywords to future job requests, so if the ideal job comes up you should be automatically shortlisted and contacted, if you have chosen this option. You should also review our career pages regularly for new positions that we upload.

What selection criteria are usually applied?

The criteria varies on the role but typically we will look at past career history, education, accreditation and charterships, responsibilities in previous positions, project history, contract form, project value, sector experience and transferable skills.

How long will the selection process take?

We aim to review all applications and we aim to respond to all applicants regardless of the outcome, within 4 weeks. Alternatively, you can log into your account whenever you wish to check on the progress of your application.

How does the interview process work?

Our process usually involves a two-stage interview. Following an initial call you will be invited to meet us either face to face or via Teams to discuss Tarmac and the role being considered, as well as giving you the opportunity to expand more on your experience and accomplishments. If successful, you will be invited to a further interview or assessment as will be detailed in your invite to interview.
