Application details  

As an employer we use the Beapplied platform for applications. bepplied seeks to remove unconscious bias from hiring processes. 

The application process:

  • We ask for candidates to complete four short answer questions.

  • Reviews of short answer questions are blind sifted. Each of your answers will be reviewed separately and will be anonymous.  Reviewers will have banks of questions to review across various candidates, so they won’t see your full application in one go. It is therefore essential that you treat each question individually and do not make links to other questions e.g., “please see previous question”.

  • You will be asked to upload your CV. However, to maintain the blind process for the review stage (sift) we will only look at CVs at the point in which we are shortlisting applications.

Closing date: Monday 15 March 2021, 10:00 GMT

Engage Britain is committed to creating a culture where people from different backgrounds can come together to share their views and voice. We see difference – both in our work and in our employees – as a strength, so we actively encourage applications from all backgrounds.

Location: We encourage applications from people around the UK, as you will be able to work remotely. However, there would be an expectation that you would need to travel to London for regular team days (for example twice a month team days). There may also be other instances of occasional travel to London and within the UK

NB: If you have a disability and would prefer to apply in a different format or would like us to make reasonable adjustments to enable you to apply, please let us know by emailing us on or calling on 020 3031 8190.
