    Our Recruitment Process

    Once you submit your CV, we'll send you a short online form asking you to confirm a couple of things. This will then go directly to the Hiring Manager review. We'll often do a short first stage telephone interview to find out more about you and to check that the role would be a good fit for your requirements.

    Then, if you progress to interview stage, we'll try to cover off everything we can in one Teams sitting, to make the process quicker for you - which means our interviews can be slightly longer than average. We hope you'll leave the meeting with a real feel for the job and what it's like to work with us.

    With a great place to work in the centre of Wroclaw, one of the best benefits packages in town and a focus on our people - Red is really worth checking out as a place to work.
