The first hurdle is a 'cultural fit' interview with Robert Oates (again at Head Office, or via Zoom), where you can both talk about what makes you happy and motivated, why you want to come to join arbtech, what our culture and mission is, and what would enable us to keep you here for the long-long-term.
At this point you'll be expected to have had a good look at our website and social channels and asked enough questions in your first interview to know a little bit about the company. If you're not a graduate, expect questions like, "What do you think is the number one opportunity we're missing?""
This stage is rooted in the thesis that you can train skills, but you can't train personality. We want people to be as comfortable being 'themselves' in work as much as they are out of it, because authenticity at work allows people to build meaningful relationships with one another and become friends.
Pro tip: Be yourself. When we ask you about long-term ambitions, just be honest. If you want to run a bakery, be an astronaut, are studying law at night school or want to start a competitor to arbtech down the line, that’s all fine. If we think you’re the right fit for our culture, then it won't affect our decision at all. In fact, if we are a good fit for each other, when the time comes, we'll help you along your way.
Pass that, and you're almost in.
