Our Recruitment Process

Once you submit your CV, we’ll send you a short online form asking you to confirm a couple of things. This will then go directly to the Hiring Manager to review. We'll often do a short first stage telephone interview to find out more about you and to check that the role would be a good fit for your requirements.

Then, if you progress to interview stage we’ll try to cover off everything we can in one sitting, to make the process quicker for you - which means our interviews can be slightly longer than average. We want you to leave the interview with a real feel for the job and what it’s like to work with us.

If this sounds like what you’ve been looking for, apply today and we’ll be in touch really soon.

Group Application – Apply as a Team with your Friends

Your problem: You and your mates have been working together for a while. The sense of humour, friendships and trust in your team is going to be hard to duplicate somewhere else. Besides, starting again and proving yourself with your strengths and weaknesses in a whole new team is a lot of work. You would like more salary (who wouldn’t) and a change in what you are doing would be nice too and maybe it’s time to learn some new things and grow as an engineer. It’s all true but it’s hard to make that first step.

Your Solution: Team Hire at Red
