How to apply/FAQs
Once you have found a job you like the look of, you will need to make an online application. You will be asked to set up a candidate account and to upload your CV.
When answering the questions please bear in mind we place great value on the written information you provide to support your CV. We recommend that when providing details of your skills and experience, you revisit the job advert to match your response to the requirements of the role. As you complete your application it will be automatically saved and you can come back make amendments up to the point you press submit. Once submitted, we will send you an email to confirm we have received your application.
We understand that it takes time and effort to complete an application; therefore, we promise your application will be carefully reviewed by both the HR team and hiring manager, usually within 7 days of the closing date, and we will let you know the outcome, whatever it may be.
If you are successful, we will get in touch to arrange an interview. As part of the interview process we may ask you to complete a task; we do this as we believe that it creates a better opportunity for you to demonstrate your skills and suitability to the role. Part of our process will also include a competency-based interview. We will ask you questions which focus on how you have used your skills, knowledge, and experience in specific tasks in previous roles. You will be providing us with relevant examples of your work experience which demonstrate your ability to do the job you have applied for.
Once your interview or assessment is completed, we will be back in touch to let you have our decision. In some cases, we may invite you back for a second interview. If we offer you a job, we will usually do this by phone and we will confirm it in writing, too. We will also let you know if you have not been successful. In the offer letter you will be asked to provide evidence of your right to work in the UK and any educational qualifications and professional certificates.

EA Technology has a Home Office sponsorship licence and can therefore sponsor EEA and non-EEA candidates. If the role is open to sponsorship it will say so within the advert. If you are interested in a role that does not mention this please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
In most cases, we include a closing date on the advert and the job will close at midnight on the date given. Unfortunately, if you miss the deadline we are unable to accept late applications.
As soon as a job is filled or passes its expiry date it is automatically removed from our site. You may still find a job listed on external boards but if there is no listing on our site then it is no longer open for applications.

Here at EA Technology we recognise that there is no one standard flexible working policy that will suit every individual.

Some of our roles are popular and there are times when we have more candidates than opportunities available. Whilst there is no limit to the number of roles you apply for, if you have been unsuccessful on a few occasions you may find it helpful to discuss the reasons with us.
Please be advised that we do not work with agencies on a speculative basis. We have a direct sourcing model and when we need that little extra support we have strong partnerships in place to provide the necessary expertise. We ask that agencies do not contact us as we will not respond.
