At interview stage already? Here are some tips on what you can expect.


How do I apply for a role with Sovereign?

You can apply via our website (mobile and laptop friendly). If you're unable to apply this way, contact us at careers@sovereign.org.uk  and we'll happily discuss the options available. 

It’s important to show how well you meet the criteria listed in the advert and job description. Make sure you do this as part of the application, or in your CV, as it will help your chances of being selected for interview. 

Is your online application process secure?

Yes, we make sure all personal information you provide is protected from unauthorised use. 

We'll ask some personal questions (such as gender and age), but this information is not given to the recruiting manager. Sensitive information is separated from your application and stored confidentially. We ask for this information simply for monitoring purposes and to make sure we meet our commitment as an equal opportunities employer. 

I've made a mistake or want to update my supporting information. How do I do that?

If you've already submitted your application, you won't be able to update or amend your application online. Please email us at careers@sovereign.org.uk.

Can I apply/finish my application after the close date?

No, unfortunately once the advert has closed you won't be able to apply. Please contact us at careers@sovereign.org.uk  and we can advise.

Can I apply for more than one vacancy?

Yes, you can apply for as many vacancies as you like.

How do I know my application has been submitted?

When you applied, you told us your email address and we'll use this to contact you throughout the online application stages. If you've checked your email and your spam folder, please email careers@sovereign.org.uk.

How will I know if I have been successful for interview?

We'll call you after the advert close date if you've been shortlisted for interview. On the call we'll offer you an interview date and discuss arrangements.

You might be invited to a telephone interview as part of the recruitment process. If this is the case, we'll arrange all the details with you. 

What do I need to know about interviews?

The interview process isn't there to trip people up, it's really about having a conversation to understand how your skills, experience and values meet the needs of the job.
