The recruitment process

But recruitment processes generally include an introductory phone call with HR to get to know you a bit better, then some interviews to either meet the team or test the required skills for the role. We also put a high value on culture. This means we evaluate candidates according to specific competencies and behaviours, and think about what they can add to the company culture.
