Sorry but no. Please check our current vacancies for other roles and sign up for our 'Job Alerts' to avoid missing out on future opportunities.

Can I apply for a position in the UK if I need a work permit?

If I'm not successful this time, can I apply again?

Yes everyone is encouraged to apply again if and when a suitable role arises. Please check our current vacancies for other jobs and sign up for our Job Alerts.

Do you have an equal opportunities policy?

How does the interview process work?

Our interview process is based on the requirements of the role. We use competency-based interviewing, psychometric testing and assessment centres, but there are a variety of other selection tools we use where appropriate. It sounds scary but we promise it isn’t.  You will be given details of the format when invited for interview.

Are travelling expenses for interviews/assessment centres covered?

Sorry no. We do not offer any reimbursement for expenses incurred in attending an interview or an assessment centre.

How long does the selection process take?

There is no fixed timeframe for the selection process. For more senior roles, you might meet us on several occasions before we reach a decision. But we do understand the pressures of looking for work and try to make the process as quick as possible for you.

Is there a Refer-a-Friend scheme?

Yes. If one of our team recommends you and you’re successful, they could get up to £1,000 – as long as they’re not part of the selection process. 

Do you offer work experience/summer internships?

Yes. There are opportunities for work experience and internships in the form of summer and year-in placements. All placements, work experience and internships are managed locally at each of our contracts.

Please post a copy of your CV with a cover letter detailing the type of work/internship experience you are interested in. You will only be contacted if there is a placement opportunity available and you have been shortlisted for an interview.

Recruitment scams

I have received an email asking me to apply for a job. What should I do?

We are aware of recent incidents involving people falsely claiming to recruit people on our behalf, issuing false contracts and soliciting personal details and/or money to process security checks, etc. Please be assured we never make job offers without going through our formal recruitment process.

How can I tell if a job offer is fraudulent?

We will never contact you from a non-Amey email address and you should treat emails from Yahoo, Gmail etc as fraudulent.  You should also report any application forms you receive via email as this won’t have come from us.

If we need to call you, we’ll always ring from a registered company phone, not a mobile number.

And we won’t request any form of payment or personal or financial information - ever

What else can I do if I receive a suspicious recruitment offer?

If you believe you have been defrauded, stop all communication and report the fraud to the authorities, i.e. your local police station or Action Fraud and provide them with all the relevant information. If you have provided bank details, contact your bank immediately.

We recommend that you do not respond to unsolicited job opportunities from people you don’t know. Report any instances of fraudulent approaches or job offers to us at: hrhelpdesk@amey.co.uk
