Got a question? We may already have the answer

Should you have any questions about working at Bespak, or the application or recruitment process, we’re happy to answer them. To help, we’ve put together answers to some of the questions we get asked most often.

Do I need a valid work visa?

Yes, you will need a valid work visa. For qualifying roles, we are able to sponsor a work visa.

Do you run a Graduate Recruitment Programme?

Yes we run a graduate and apprenticeship programme.  All vacancies will be posted on our careers website.  We recommend you create an account and register for alerts so that you will be notified when new roles are advertised.

How do I apply for a role?

Complete our short online application process.  You will typically be asked to create an account, answer 4 to 5 standard questions and attach a short cover letter with your CV. On average it takes about 5 minutes to apply for a role at Bespak.

If you don’t see a role that matches what you are looking for right now we recommend that you create a profile so that you can receive job notifications, be seen on our database by our recruitment team and speed up your application when you do see a role that matches your experience.

If you need to apply in a different format – please contact our recruitment team.

What happens after I apply?

Your application will be reviewed by a member of our recruitment team who may then contact you to obtain some additional information to support your application before it is forwarded to the hiring manager.

If you are selected for interview, depending on the type of role you are applying for you can typically expect a three stage process

  • A telephone or web based interview with the Hiring Manager and HR.
  • An onsite interview with the hiring manager, HR and role stakeholders.
  • A final interview with the hiring manager’s manager.

We use a range of assessment techniques including strength based and competency based interviewing, psychometrics, in-tray exercises and scenarios, 1:1 and group interviews.  Your recruiter will keep you informed throughout the process so that you know what type of assessment you can expect.

We are a Disability Confident Employer

Our status as Disability Confident Employer means that if you have a disability of any kind, you know you will be treated equally and fairly within our organisation – from applying for jobs through to working with our teams. Should you require any adjustments throughout the recruitment process please speak with a member of our recruitment team.

Do you accept applications from recruitment agencies?

Honesty is our policy when it comes to working with recruitment agencies. We fill the majority of vacancies without the help of agencies or partners. On the occasion that we can’t fill a role ourselves, we’ll use agencies that we trust and that are on our preferred supplier list (PSL).

We only accept applications via our careers portal and only agencies on our PSL and with agreed terms of business can provide us with CVs when requested by our in-house recruitment team. As a result, we aren’t in a position to accept any speculative CVs from agencies who aren’t on our PSL. If we become aware of unsolicited CVs being sent to us we will treat them as a gift.

If you’re interested in providing agency/consultancy recruitment services to Bespak, please email us. We’ll keep your details for consideration as and when we need to, however emailing us does not constitute any form of pre-qualification status for our PSL.
