Transport, dress code and ID

Transport, dress code and ID

Getting here

Most of our administration centres and contact centres have parking. If no parking is available at the particular site that you are visiting your Resourcing Consultant will be able to advise of the nearest public car park.

If you're attending an interview in a branch or using public transport to attend an interview, we recommend you check you know where you're going before you leave.

Google Maps should be able to help you find the nearest public transport.

Do make sure that you arrive in plenty of time, our reception areas can get busy, especially first thing in the morning so leaving yourself extra time should make this process smoother, and hopefully leave you feeling a bit more relaxed. When you arrive at reception, they'll take your name and then take a photo to make you a visitor's pass. Your interviewers will then be contacted, and will come and collect you.

What to wear

At Nationwide, most people wear smart casual except in our branches. However, interviewees usually dress in business-wear. A good example of this is a clean and ironed shirt with smart trousers/skirt or suit and smart shoes.

When will I hear back?

We know you'll be keen to hear the outcome of your interview, and we'll aim to update you as soon as we can after the last interview has taken place. If there will be any major delays in letting you know, we'll keep you updated.

ID Documents

If successful, as part of our offer process you will need to prove your eligibility to work in the UK, as well as supply details that will allow us to do pre-employment checks. As a temporary measure to accommodate the UK guidance relating to Covid-19 (Coronavirus), the Home Office will let us verify your ID documents virtually. 

During your interview you'll need to email across a copy or photo of your original ID documents (listed below under "Here's what we need") to your interviewer. You will then be asked to hold up the original documents to the interviewer who will check them against your emailed ID documents. 

At the start of your employment, if you are working in a branch or admin centre, you will be asked to bring in your original documents for further verification as required by the Home Office. If you are joining remotely you will be asked to provide your original documents for further verification when there is an opportunity to do this, in line with the relevant measures in place.
