All applications start via our website, where you will need to submit your CV and cover letter via the Apply button on the relevant job page. As well as details about the job, you can also find hints about what we are expecting from your CV and covering letter . All applications are via our job application software, Brassring, so do not worry if you move to a different website when you click apply. If you are an internal Nissan candidate, there is a different internal application process.
Please note – You must be in a position to prove your right to live and work in the UK. You will be asked to bring evidence of this if invited to Final interview.
Our recruitment team will review your CV and covering letter to assess your suitability for the position. If your application meets the job criteria we will then give you a call to invite you to attend an initial interview, which will either be via telephone or on-site, depending on the position. If your application is unsuccessful you will usually hear from us within 2 weeks of the application deadline, though this may be extended depending on number of applicants.
During the telephone interview we will walk through your career history and ask you relevant questions depending on your experiences. We will also ask you a set of competency-based questions, where you will be required to use specific examples and experience from your career to date. You will hear if you were successful at telephone interview stage within 1 week and we will arrange the on-site interview
On-site Panel Interview
Your on-site interview will be with a panel made up of members of the recruitment and engineering teams. During the on-site interview you will answer a set of competency-based and technical questions that will be relevant to the department of the engineering job for which you are applying. At this stage you may be asked to deliver a 10-15 minute presentation on a relevant subject. We will ensure you are informed of this beforehand to give you time to prepare. If you are successful at interview we will contact you by telephone to discuss the next stage.
Final Interview and Medical
If you are successful at interview we will ask you to complete a full medical at our on-site assessment centre. The medical will take approximately 1 hour and will involve a basic health screening questionnaire and discussion with our occupational health nurse. You will not need to bring your running shoes! The medical will help us establish if we need to make any reasonable adjustments to help support existing medical conditions.
You will also get a chance to meet the Engineering Senior Management Team and visit your new department. You will take a tour around the factory and see the machinery and equipment that you will be working with.
Please note – at this stage, you will be required to bring proof of your right to live and work in the UK to your interview. Failure to do so may lead to you being turned away.
If you are successful at all stages then you will get a formal job offer from us – welcome to the team! At this point we will take you through your contract, finalise your start date and answer any final questions you may have.
