At Equilibrium, our application process aims to be as effective as possible, ensuring candidates can get an accurate picture of what it's like to work with us. 

Read about our application process below.

1. Initial chat

Seen a role that you'd like to go for? Great! Send us your CV and a short covering letter. If we think you're a good fit, we'll be in touch for a quick chat to find out a bit more about you.

2. Kolbe

If the initial chat goes well, we'll then ask you to go through a quick conative test called a 'Kolbe’. Don't worry, there aren't any right or wrong answers. Your Kolbe score will simply give us a helpful indication of how you naturally go about tasks and what your gut instincts are. Everyone at Equilibrium has a Kolbe score so it is important we have variety.

3. Interview

If everything is looking good after the Kolbe, we'd like to meet you. Depending on the role you're applying for, you'll either be asked to attend one or two interviews to find out more about you. We know how tricky it can be to apply for a job when you're already working so we will try to be flexible with interview times.

 Here's our top tips for your interview

4. Offer

If you impress us in the interview, we'll invite you to join the team! Once the offer has been accepted, we’ll begin background and reference checks. 

5. Starting

Congratulations! We know you'll be nervous so we prepare everything we can to make sure you hit the ground running (some chocolates and a welcome-to-the-team lunch trip always help). In the first 12 weeks you'll have a detailed schedule including introductions to all our different departments and training wherever it’s needed. We know it'll seem like a whirlwind, but we were all there once, and there'll be plenty of support and catchups along the way.
