Tips for applicants –
how to ensure your application to STS is successful

Expectations

What we expect from you:

First impressions count – and your application to us is no different. A great application is the best way to advertise yourself and key to embarking on a successful career. Your application therefore needs to provide a comprehensive picture of your skills and ambitions, as well as be formally correct and create the right impression. Apply for a position that you are interested in and suitable for.

Selection
procedure

The selection procedure:

Once we have received your application, you will generally receive confirmation of receipt within two working days. If we are impressed with your application, we will start by inviting you to a short telephone interview so that we can find out a little more about you.
The next step is the first interview, where we aim to get to know you better. This will be held by the supervisor and the HR representative.

During the interview, we pay particular attention to your social skills, for example to see how flexible and communicative you are at responding to an unusual situation. If we invite you back for a second interview, we will take you on a tour of the company, giving you the chance to get to know more about STS, your future department and colleagues.

If you are applying for a position in one of our skilled trade areas, we will arrange a trial day with you straight after the interview to give you a better idea of what the role entails.

How to prepare:

Before your interview, take some time to thoroughly research our company and the advertised position. We will consult you before arranging a date for the interview so you have enough time to prepare.

Our recommendations:

  • Do you have any gaps or roles that need explaining in your CV?
  • Reflect on what makes you great, the areas you find challenging, and the areas in which you can best apply yourself. The better aware you are of your own strengths, preferences and goals, the easier you will find it to explain to us why you are the ideal person for the advertised job.
  • Feel free to prepare any questions you would like clarifying.
  • Above all, be yourself! We look forward to meeting you.
