What is the recruitment process at EMCOR UK?

At EMCOR UK, we have a dedicated team of recruiters who handle the full recruitment process within the UK from advertising the vacancy through to making an offer to the successful applicant, confirming a start date and induction.

We receive your application (usually in the format of a CV) either through our online careers page or via our preferred supplier list of recruitment agencies. All applications are assessed against skills criteria set out within the job description.

The hiring manager reviews the short list of applications received from the recruitment department, providing feedback to them on who they would like to interview and reasons for declining applications. The recruitment department provides feedback to the unsuccessful candidates and invites those who are successful in for a face to face interview.

Interviews are conducted by the hiring manager and another manager in support. Once the interviews have been conducted the hiring manager will select the suitable candidate and inform the recruitment department of their decision. The recruitment department will contact the successful candidate to make a verbal offer and arrange for a written contract to be sent out.
