Job Fit Interview: Only qualified applicants are asked to join us for an interview with a manager or director. This interview is done in person or a video call. Here you'll be asked questions about your experience in relation to the role.
Skills Appraisal: After going through the preliminary interview, you'll go through a skill appraisal. You will be sent a task through email.
