If you wish to have your application and CV visible to hiring managers and recruiters of other positions than the one you are applying for at the time, remember to tick a box giving a consent to share your information with other recruiters. Please note that all applications are managed through our recruitment system, and we cannot accept applications via e-mail.

In case there is no matching position available at the moment, you can create a candidate profile. This way your details will be available for our recruiters and hiring managers when new roles become available. You can also create a job alert (using Job Management tab) to get notified of the new available positions of your interest.


After applications have been received, we review the applications and based on the applications invite the most suitable candidates to interviews. 

Before an interview, prepare yourself by thinking what are your skills that you can offer in the role. Be prepared to present practical examples from your previous work (or study) history to demonstrate the experience or skills relevant for the position. You will also have a great opportunity to ask questions you have in mind.

You will usually meet a hiring manager and HR or recruitment partner in the first interview. You may also meet other future colleagues during the interview process. There may be several interview rounds depending on the position you are interviewed for. 

Video interviews and assessment tools may be part of the interview process. The details of the recruitment process are always decided based on the specific job requirements and needs. 

Recruitment decision

We aim to make a final decision and communicate about it as quickly as possible. The decision is based on all information gathered during the recruitment process such as skills and expertise, motivation and cultural fit. We inform all candidates about the next steps, progress and the final decision.
