Currently working with us

We want to ensure you have all you need to be able to source candidates successfully for us, so to help you, we have put together a short guide to life at Nationwide and what candidates can expect from the recruitment process:

Assessments

We use numerous assessment techniques, and the type of assessment your candidates are invited to may differ depending on the type of role they are interviewing for.

This will be explained to you prior to the interview in order to make sure your candidates can perform to the best of their ability.

It’s likely there will be a competency based interview, and if so we recommend the STAR technique, however more information on our assessment processes can be found here: https://www.nationwide-jobs.co.uk/candidate-briefing-pack/what-to-expect-in-an-assesment/

Process

At a high-level, the process we follow is:-

When a role is approved for release to agencies, we’ll contact you to see if this is something you could help with. If you think you can, that’s great, if you don’t feel it’s quite your remit that’s fine too, please just let us know.

At Nationwide we think the best way to give you more information about the role is to hear it directly from the hiring manager so we’ll book in either a face- to- face briefing or conference call to discuss the vacancy in more detail, so you can get a real feel for the role.

Once this has taken place we’ll then send you a link to our portal where you’ll be able to upload candidates CVs along with the Nationwide cover sheet. It’s best to put your contact details on the sheet so we can contact you with any update for the candidate(s).

After the advert for the role has closed, the hiring manager will be asked to review all CV’s and let us know the interview date.

Your Resourcing contact will then get in touch to update you on the candidate(s) you have submitted with any feedback and to confirm if applicable the interview and what the interview will entail. We’ll then send confirmation of this via email to you to pass onto the candidate.

When the hiring manager is in a place to confirm the outcomes we’ll be in touch to update you.

Dos and Don’ts

We appreciate that every client is different and if you’ve not worked with us before it’s unlikely you will know how we operate as a Resourcing team.

Even if you have worked with us before, here is a reminder of how we how we need to work together.

We ask that

  • You DO contact the Resourcing team with any questions or candidate information.
  • You DON’T contact any hiring managers directly.
  • You DO submit any candidate details via the online portal
  • You DON’T send any CVs or candidate details directly to the hiring managers.
  • You DO let your Resourcing contact know if a candidate withdraws their application or can’t attend an interview

These will form part of your contract with us and any breaches or non-compliance will be logged and follow up action may be taken which could result in you being suspended or removed from our PSL.
