Process and timeline

    There are 2 steps to the process:
  1. Submit application form by the deadline of Monday 6 May 2019. This takes just a few hours of your time, which isn't much considering how great this opportunity is! 
  2. Attend interview if your application is successfully shortlisted. This is an opportunity for us to meet in person to have a chat with you to understand how we can support your career journey - we want to bring out the best in you so please don't be intimidated by this when applying! 

Timeline:

  • Deadline for applications: Monday 6 May 2019
  • Applications to be reviewed: Tuesday 7 to Friday 17 May 2019
  • Email to confirm whether or not you have been invited for an interview: by Friday 17 May 2019
  • (For interview invites only) Interview support training session: Tuesday 21 May 2019, details will be in the email
  • Interviews: Monday 3 to Tuesday 11 June 2019
  • Confirmation of successfully securing a mentor: by end of June 2019

NOTE: if you are not in Birmingham during the time of the interviews (as you might be on a year abroad, for example) - we can conduct an interview over Skype. You can also mention on your application form the preferred dates/times depending on time zones (if you are abroad).
