The Recruitment Process - How to apply

When you apply for a role with us, you will go through several stages before you secure a opportunity with us. We want to ensure you are right for the organisation and that we are right for you.

The first step is to search through the jobs we have posted on our website (here), and follow the easy application process. You can also submit your CV speculatively if nothing takes your fancy, so we can contact you if future roles can come up in your area (can you do that here?).

The Perfect CV

Your CV is generally the first thing a prospective employer sees about you, therefore it’s your best opportunity to make a good first impression. Make sure it is:

  • Concise - no more than two pages use white paper and font Ariel 11;
  • To the point;
  • Highlights your achievements in work so far;
  • Explains what you want to do in the future.

Start with your contact details, then 4 or 5 bullet points about you and why you are the best person for the job. Follow this with your job history, if applicable (most recent job first) and then your educational history. Don’t go into too much detail on non-relevant roles and qualifications. Most importantly, use your CV to really showcase you as a prospective member of our family.

At this stage we will ask you to answer a series of questions to ensure you are eligible to apply and then ask you to complete some brief online assessments.

The Assessments – what are they?

As part of the recruitment process, we send each eligible applicant three short tests: Literacy, Numeracy and a Personality assessment, all of which are sent via email and can be completed on a desktop or laptop PC. These assessments vary from 6- 8 minutes each.

The numeracy test assesses your ability to use numbers and your understanding of them. Literacy assesses your comprehension and understanding of words and phrases in different contexts. Both tests are timed and you will be informed of the result straight away – there is a 70% pass mark on each test and you are welcome to use a calculator if you wish.

The Personality Profile (PPA) focuses on how you like to operate in a work environment and what sort of a team you work best in. Be assured there is no ‘pass or fail’, the PPA assessment just enables us to see how you would behave and potentially fit in with your team.

You will then be advised if we wish to progress your application. If you are successful, we will either invite you to attend a face-to-face interview, or for some of our sales based roles ask you to attend an Assessment Centre.

Your interview – what to expect

Make sure you are dressed in business attire and have done your research on our company. You will also need to bring your passport for proof of ID, your driving licence and proof of your national insurance number.

We want to find out more about you so have a think about your future goals and ambitions. We will ask you to give us a brief overview of your career history and in turn will ask you a series of either probing or competency based questions.

Here are some examples of the types of questions you can expect to be asked

  • What is it about haart that has attracted you to apply?
  • Tell me about a time you have gone the extra mile and delivered exceptional customer service?
  • What are you ambitions and goals?
  • What results are you most proud of achieving and why?
  • If you were to describe yourself in five words what would they be?
  • What three things make people successful and how do you relate these to yourself?
  • What motivates and demotivates you?

The interview is your opportunity to really sell yourself, so make the most of it!

We also want to give you more information about the job and make sure the role is the right fit for you. Jamie – what do we give them??? Is this specific documents or a run through how we operate?
