Unfortunately, we are unable to give feedback to candidates not shortlisted for interview. We do provide feedback to candidates interviewed.
A fair and equitable interview process will be conducted to select suitable candidates. There will be a first stage competency and values based interview. Depending on the role this is likely to include a presentation by the candidate or a skills test. Successful candidates from this round may be invited to a second interview to meet other team members and discuss your experience in more detail.
Please be open and honest with us when demonstrating your skills, knowledge and expertise, so we can find out as much relevant information about you as possible.
We aim to conduct all interviews face to face, if this is not possible interviews will be conducted, formally, over Teams or Skype and we aim to provide feedback quickly, a timeframe will be discussed at interview.
We look forward to meeting you and welcome questions about the role and organisation.
Please be aware that we do not reimburse candidates for travel or online expenses.
You will be required to disclose your eligibility to work in the UK and any unspent convictions prior to interview. Having a criminal record will not necessarily bar individuals from working with this organisation. It will depend on the nature of the position and the circumstances and background of your offences. Any information given will be held in the strictest confidence. We will review the individual circumstances of the case and may, at our discretion, decline to select the individual for employment.
You will also be required to provide us with two referees, your first referee should be your line manager at your current/most recent place of employment. Your second referee may be a line manager from a previous place of employment or another professional who knows you in a professional / academic context. Your referees will not be contacted without your consent and usually only following a successful interview and verbal offer of employment.
Some roles require a disclosure and barring check (DBS) which will be discussed at interview. In the event of a successful appointment candidates will be required to complete a confidential occupational health (OH) questionnaire in order that London’s Air Ambulance Charity is able to make reasonable adjustments, as required.
