Before applying for a role and click submit to your application you may want to hear some useful tips from our Recruitment team.
How does the recruitment process work?
It depends on the role you’re applying for. However, the first step is submitting your application.
After you apply, we’ll review your details and if we like what we read, we’ll be in touch to organize a telephone interview or a work assessment with you. Next comes an invitation to a second interview – maybe even more – before we make an offer you can’t refuse.
What opportunities are there for students?
Unfortunately we are not offering Internship or student agreements…yet!
Do I need to be fluent in English?
Yes. English is the language we use at work, so you need to speak it confidently and write it well. If you’re open-minded and ready to work with many different nationalities, you’ll love it
Do you accept international applications?
Of course. We love diversity and people from about 30 different countries work together at Schibsted. For advice on relocation, just speak to our recruitment team.
What should I include in my application?
An updated CV, your contact details and any other information you want to share.
Will my information be kept confidential?
Completely. We follow all the rules when it comes to dealing with personal details and sensitive data. All our recruiters and hiring managers are trained appropriately, and nothing you send us will be seen by anyone who shouldn’t be seeing it.
How will I be contacted about my application?
We try to speak to everyone, but the number of applications we receive mean that’s not always possible. You’ll definitely hear from us by email though.
What should I do if I am having technical difficulties applying for a role via the website?
Firstly, please accept our apologies. The chances are our support colleagues are already on it, so if you come back later you should be able to apply or send us an email using our contact form.
What should I wear to an interview?
There’s no dress code at our offices – we care about what you can do, not how you look. So throw on anything that makes you feel comfortable; if that’s shorts and sandals, go with shorts and sandals!
How do I prepare for my interview?
As always, do your research. We’ll expect you to know our business well enough to have an informed opinion. Also, have another read of the job description and prepare some examples showing you have what it takes to handle the role. And be prepared to answer questions on the technologies and skills listed on your CV. Finally, if you have any links that could reinforce your application, send them to us in advance.
What if I need to change my interview date?
Get in touch with your contact in the recruitment team as soon as possible and they will help you to reschedule.
Can I apply again for the same or other roles?
Yes, of course, but make sure you have addressed whatever factor caused your previous application to be unsuccessful.
