Version 1 Hiring FAQ's
Answering the most common hiring FAQ's and questions about the Version 1 application process
At Version 1 we welcome multiple applications – feel free to apply for as many roles as you like!
If it has been more than 6 months since your original application, you are free to re-apply.
The typical Version 1 hiring process is 3-4 rounds, comprising of a phone interview (technical), a Hiring Manager interview, and an HR interview (and, if required, an interview with our customer). We also ask that applicants complete our Thomas International Assessments (psychometric) prior to their interview.
CPD levels 1 and 2 will usually be one interview.
CPD levels 3 and 4 will usually be a maximum of 2 interviews.
After initially applying to Version 1, you can expect to hear back from our Talent Acquisition Team within 2-3 business days. Further into the process you can expect feedback on your interviews within 1 to 2 weeks.
The Version 1 hiring process usually takes 2-3 weeks from initial application to final interview. Each interview will be 30- 60 mins in length (but could run longer).
Thomas International is an online psychometric test that comprises of 3 individual assessments: PPA (Personality Profile Assessment), GIA (General Intelligence Assessment) and HPTI (High Performance Trait Indicators). For senior management and leadership roles there is also an additional test, the TEIQue (Trait Emotional Intelligence Questionnaire).
We base our technical interviews around your skills, competencies, and experiences. As such, there are no set questions. In advance of your interview, we would always recommend going through the initial job specification and the company details.
Sometimes – it depends on the role.
Should the role you applied for require a technical test you will be advised of this in advance, and what to expect.
Smart Casual – we encourage you to bring your authentic self.
Since the pandemic 100% of our interviews switched to virtual.
We are very flexible in terms of interviews. Face to Face interviews can be arranged if you prefer. We generally use Microsoft teams or any other suitable video software.
The recruiter will always touch base with you prior to your interview to answer any queries you may have. You can also reach out to them via email with any questions and they will be happy to help.
