Useful recruitment questions and answers
How will I know that you've received my application?
We value every application we receive – through our applicant tracking system we are able to automate our recruitment processes meaning every application we receive will be acknowledged with an automated message to advise you of the receipt of your application.
Irrespective of the stage of the recruitment process you will receive some form of communication from us advising of the outcome of your application whichever role you may apply for.
How soon can I expect to hear the outcome of my application?
We normally advertise our vacancies for a period of two weeks. Our People and Culture team then review all CV’s creating a shortlist and advising all unsuccessful candidates of the outcome of their application. The period from submitting your application to hearing back from us can be anytime between 1-16 days.
When will you contact my references?
After we have made you an offer and you have accepted, we usually request reference covering the last three years. Please note we will ask for your permission first before approaching your referees.
How do I get feedback if I've been unsuccessful?
You will generally be provided feedback via email, however due to the number of applications we receive, it is not always possible for us to provide personalised and tailored feedback, however you will receive communication from us in the form of an email at shortlisting stage advising of the reasons behind why you have been unsuccessful.
Why do you monitor equality and diversity information and what do you do with it?
The equality and diversity information that we ask for when you complete an application is used to help us monitor the effectiveness of our recruitment. We do not use it as part of the selection decision and the selection panel do not see this information. This information remains anonymous.
Do you keep a list of people interested in working at Network Homes?
Our applicant tracking system allows us to create a talent pool of candidates who are interested in working for us. This enables us to regularly keep in touch with you and update you on our current vacancies.
You can also sign up to our job alerts where you will receive an alert each time we advertise a job. When you apply for a role you create your own personal profile which gives you a high level overview of all of your past and future applications and enables you to regularly save your CV ready to use when you wish to apply for another role with us.
