    Got questions? We can answer them...


    All of our vacancies are advertised on our website. Each one has a link to take you to the online application form. See our current vacancies.

    We never accept just CVs. All candidates need to complete an online application form. For some roles you may need to submit a CV as well.

    No, you can only apply for vacancies that are advertised. Once you’ve registered for an account with us, you can set up job alerts. You’ll get an email when a role or location you’re looking for becomes available. Set up an account now.

    We sometimes close adverts early if we get enough suitable applications (this should be stated in the advert). If you are interested in a role, apply as early as you can.

    We try to email all candidates with updates on the progress of their application.  You can also check on the status of your application at any time by logging in to your careers account.

    The tests and assessment centres help us predict how you’ll perform in the role you’ve applied for and assess the key skills you’ll need.

    If you can’t find the assessment scheduling tool, it means all of the assessments are fully booked.  We’ll let you know when more dates are available.

    “Future opportunities ” means we’re recruiting candidates for a Talent Pool. This allows us to react quickly to fill positions across the business as they arise.

    Not right away. There’s a waiting period of six months before you can reapply for the same or a similar role.

    If any of your personal details have changed or you want to withdraw your application, please log in to your account on the Southeastern careers portal.
