Application process

1. Apply online

We advertise all our vacancies on our website and on the majority of job boards. If you see a role which you feel best fits your skills and requirements, simply click “Apply” and attach your CV, and your application will come directly to our HR department, and will be considered within one or two weeks, depending on the closing date of the vacancy. We respond to all applicants by email to update them on the status of their application throughout the recruitment process.

2. Telephone interview

We’ll review your application against the skills required for the role you have applied for. If you’re successful, someone from our HR team will get in touch to arrange a telephone interview with a local Store Manager. During the telephone interview we’ll talk to you about your previous experience and we’ll tell you more about the role.

3. Face-to-face interview

Typically, the assessment involves a competency-based interview. These help us to evaluate the skills and behaviours you’ll bring to Ready Steady Store. We may also ask you to complete some basic skills tests, usually in Word and Excel.

4. Finally…

We will contact you by phone to offer you the job, and discuss your induction training programme arrangements. We will then confirm everything in writing. If you’re not successful on that occasion, we will inform you and provide feedback as appropriate.
