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

As part of our offer process, we will need you to prove your eligibility to work in the UK, as well as supply details that will allow us to undertake pre-employment checks.
