How do I apply for a role?First you need to create an account or log in to Kindred’s careers portal, either on your desktop computer or mobile phone. This manages your application from start to finish and you can refer to it conveniently at any time to track what stage you are at with your application.
What happens next?
Fill in the short online application form. At this stage you will give us some basic details plus your CV (or LinkedIn profile) and let us know whether you have been referred by a contact within the Kindred Group.
When will I know if I have an interview?
You will receive an email, usually within 14 days of your application, letting you know if you have been shortlisted for an initial interview. If so, you will be contacted by the talent acquisition team to schedule a time and date for your interview.
Do you have any interview tips?
Familiarise yourself with Kindred so that you are sure you know what we do, what we look for and our values. Remember that who you are is at least as important as what you’ve done. If you’ve been referred by an employee of Kindred, do make sure that you have completed the referral section of your application.
What happens after the initial interview?
We will let you know if you have been successful thus far, and if we would like you to complete a “task” for the next stage of the process.
What is the task for?
We need to be sure that your skills match the job, which is why we ask you to complete a task. That way you can demonstrate your abilities to us and, potentially, discuss them further at a second interview.
What happens after the task?
We will then let you know if we’d like to take your application further. If so, we will send you a psychometric and reasoning tasks to complete and submit online. These tests help us to decide whether you are a good fit for Kindred.
What happens after psychometric assessment?
After your assessment, we will call you in for a second interview and the opportunity to discuss your responses in detail, as well as to talk further about the role.
What happens after the second interview?
We will phone or email you to let you know if you have been successful after your second interview. In some cases, you will be asked to come in for a third interview if necessary.
How do I accept a job offer?
You can accept our job offer on your online portal and your Talent Acquisition Partner will then liaise with you directly to arrange a suitable start date.
When do I sign the contract?
Before your start date, we will send you your employment contract via email for you to electronically sign. Once you arrive, HR will issue you with employment board papers to conform with local regulations.
What’s the dress code?
We are not formal at Kindred so we do not have a particular dress code. You are free to choose how you make your first impression!
Will I get training and support?
You will be given local induction on day one, as well as interactive courses at our online Kindred Academy. These ensure you are familiar with our core values, brands and business requirements. Where appropriate, you might also get a half-day group induction during the first few weeks of your employment. There will also be regular follow ups with your manager and HR to ensure you are supported on an ongoing basis.
