Recruitment and Selection

See yourself as part of our family? 

If you’re ready to begin your career with Sim Trava, you’ve come to the right place. Here we’ll explain our recruitment and selection process in full, so you’re ready to begin your journey.

Our people are our most important asset, so we take recruitment and selection incredibly seriously. We believe that a happy team is the key to a successful business. In short, we want our team to be happy and excel in their roles, and we strive to create a happy working environment which enables them to do this.

We’re an equal opportunities employer, and recruit without discrimination. If you have any disabilities or impairments that you think could hamper the application process, please let us know so we can ensure that your application is treated fairly and equally.

Recruitment Process

To ensure all our recruits fit in with the core Sim Trava values and ethos, our recruitment process sets to identify people that we know will fit well into the team. Please note that we do not accept CVs; all recruitment is done on our online application process. You can check out our full recruitment and selection process below:

  • Identifying a role

    Start by identifying a role you think might suit you on our website’s ‘current vacancies’ page. This page is updated with all of our current vacancies, plus future opportunities. You might also find out about jobs within Sim Trava in one of our stores, during an open day, or on a recruitment advert or poster.

  • Application Process

    Once you’ve found a role suitable for you, you can register your interest and apply through our easy to use website. Upon clicking on a role that interests you, you’ll be directed to our recruitment platform e-Talent. Here, you’ll be invited to complete our online assessment which is set to determine if you’re a good fit for the role. This process may take up to 30 minutes to complete online. On completion, you’ll receive an email from us to let you know we’ve received your application.

  • Interviews

    After this, we’ll shortlist the applications and invite those that are successful to a first stage interview. At this stage we’ll want to learn more about you, how you could make a difference in the role, the reasons why you want to work for Sim Trava, and why you think you’d be a good fit in our team.

    If successful at this stage, you will be asked to attend a store for an “on the job evaluation”. This is to ensure you are happy working in this kind of environment, as well as giving you the opportunity to meet the team and interact with our customers.

    Following second stage interview, successful applicants will receive a job offer. Unsuccessful applicants will receive an email confirming the outcome within a few days.

  • Welcoming you to Sim Trava

    Before you start with us, we’ll ensure you’re fully equipped with all the information you need in order to feel comfortable on your first day. Once you start, you’ll be given a full induction and introduction to the team. We’ll also welcome all successful candidates to Sim Trava’s Central office within the first eight weeks of the role.

  • Probation periods

    Usually, probationary periods run for up to six months. However, in order to help you settle into the role, your manager will sit down with you monthly to talk about how you’re settling in, and provide you with feedback on your progress with us.

  • Future Opportunities

    As we’re always looking for amazing people to join our team, you’re also able to apply for future opportunities in stores of your choice. To select this option, scroll down to the bottom of our ‘current vacancies’ page. If you are interested in joining the Sim Trava family, please take the time to apply as we operate a waiting list.

    • We look forward to hearing from, and hopefully meeting some of you soon! If you still have questions regarding our recruitment and selection process, please talk to us by emailing: hello@simtrava.co.uk
