COVID-19 - Information for candidates
What we are doing to care for each other during the coronavirus outbreak

The safety and wellbeing of our colleagues, candidates and customers is our first priority.  Given the evolving COVID-19 situation, we want you to know that we are taking this situation very seriously and ensuring we are taking appropriate steps to look after each other.

We are carefully monitoring the situation and adjusting our ways of working in accordance with government advice. As a consequence of the situation we have made the difficult decision to pause some of our recruitment activity until further notice. We do still have some active vacancies online but we will, of course, take the necessary precautions to ensure the safety of our candidates and colleagues. This means that any interviews scheduled will be conducted via phone or using virtual meeting facilities – your recruiter will guide you through the process. 

We continue to take a proactive approach to protect both candidates and our colleagues, and we thank you for your understanding.
