Recruitment Process

Our recruitment process is designed to give you the chance to showcase yourself. We've outlined what to expect. If you have any special requirements for us to consider, please get in touch with our Recruitment team recruitment@britishsteel.co.uk

Stage 1: Online application form 

We've kept it simple. We want you to submit your CV. Ensure you CV is tailored to British Steel and includes your university, degree course and classification/predicted classification at the top.

Stage 2: Online video interview 

Following a successful application, we'll ask you to complete a video interview. We'll use the time to get to know more about you, your skills, experiences and aspirations. You'll be able to conduct the video interview at a time to suit you.

Hints and tips:

  • A video interview is just as important as if you were meeting us in-person, make sure that you prepare in the same way
  • Keep your surroundings neat and tidy. We’re not your parents but, we don’t want to see the pile of dirty washing behind you either! 
  • Be aware that the microphone picks up all the noise in the room so don't tap your pen or shuffle papers
  • Remember to make eye contact, if you don't the camera will be focused on the top of your head
  • Make use of the practice features to see how you appear and sound on screen
  • Answer your questions fully, give us good examples about what YOU have done and achieved

Stage 3: Assessment centre 

The assessment centre will include a series of activities: a presentation, a group exercise and a technical/business interview. These activities will enable you to demonstrate your abilities in a range of ways. And don't forget, this is your opportunity to interview us too. Be sure to challenge us and make sure we're a great fit for each other.

Hints and tips:

  • The best advice we can give you for the assessment centre is to be yourself, relax and enjoy the experience - it will help us to get to know each other better
  • Make sure you prepare, whether that’s the pre-defined presentation, or the questions you think we might ask
  • Answer the questions fully and give us examples about what YOU have done and achieved
  • Challenge us, ask questions and make sure we’re a good fit for each other
  • Dress smartly and be on time
  • Know where you're going, plan your journey, allow enough time for travelling
  • Bring all the relevant documents we've asked for

 You will be informed of our decision within 2-3 working days of attending the assessment centre.
