How to apply for a role
Your CV is an important tool and will give us a first look of your skills, experience and interests. There are plenty of pages online that can give you tips and help you write a good CV.
At Vanparison - experience isn’t everything! We are looking for people with the right attitude and drive, so if you don’t hit all of the criteria, write us a cover letter to show off your personality.
Depending on the role you’re applying for, we will often do a first stage telephone screening to find out a bit more about you. For some departments, you may be required to complete a specific task. This can help us decide who makes it to the interview stage.
We know interviews can be quite daunting, so here’s a little heads up! We like to ask our potential candidates a lot of competency-based questions. This involves talking about situations where you’ve used a certain skill or when and how you’ve handled a problem for example.
This helps us understand how you think, work and how you’d fit into our team. The key to answering these kinds of questions is preparation. Make sure you read the role description and understand what your role involves, so you can link skills and qualities from your previous experience.
If you’ve been successful in the interview stage, we will then give you a call and make you an offer for the role. Once you’ve accepted the offer over the phone, we will send through documents you require, including your offer letter and contract.
We also get all our new starters to fill out an intro sheet before their first day. This is then circulated to the rest of the Vanparison team so that they already know a little bit about you.
After you’ve completed and returned the new joiner forms, you can relax and look forward to joining the Vanparison team!
And don’t worry- if you have any questions in the lead up to your start date, we will remain readily available to you and keep in constant contact.
Our people are our USPs
Without the incredibly talented – and incredibly hard-working – people that make up Vanparison , the company wouldn’t be what it is.
Our people truly are our USP – and we’ve got the best team around. While the end game might be leasing cars, it would be a lot harder without the people working towards that goal every single day.
Since Vanparison opened its figurative doors in 2018, the team has gone from strength to strength, winning awards and celebrating along the way. We might be a little biased, but Vanparison really is a great place to work
But don’t just take our word for it: we’ve spoken to two of our talented team members to get the lowdown on what they do here, how their journey has been, and what they enjoy most about working at Vanparison .
