We know that by uniting around our values and purpose we'll emerge stronger and continue to develop a business reflective of the people, personalities and places that make it so special.

  • At this unprecedented time we're focussed on giving back to the communities we serve. That's why we've created the COVID-19 HR Resource Kit. We hope that these assets, offering reputable sources of information, practical advice, and inspiring real-life case studies will prove useful. We've also included a who to follow section as, when creating this document, we discovered a number of individuals who are putting out some really great advice, guidance, and support during this difficult time. It's a living, breathing document which will be continually updated, so please get in touch with any feedback and fresh ideas. Stay safe. https://bit.ly/2J8rmku

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at BPS World (Maidenhead, England) in July 2018.

    Interview

    The interview process was fun. We all were immediately put at ease by all staff members. The whole day was well structured and we were always doing something. We had the chance to speak to other apprentices that started at the beginning of the year which gave us a clear idea of what we would do on a day to day basis and how they felt and managed at the beginning.
