Before you apply, please make sure that you have read and understood all the information on this site. We want you to know what to expect - and to understand which skills and behaviours you'll need to succeed. Please click on the apply button to take your first step in the application process.
You'll need to attach your CV and answer a number of qualifying questions. The first section is numerical, followed by a 'situational judgement' section. These questions are designed to show whether you have the basic level of numeracy and decision-making skills that our commercial roles demand. This section is not timed but it will take approximately 25 minutes to complete.
This is followed by a behavioural questionnaire, which has been benchmarked against leaders across Boots. This questionnaire should take no more than 15 minutes - you should give your first response to each question and not spend too much time thinking about your answer. You will need to complete the questionnaire in one sitting as the system will not allow you to go back in and finish it at a later stage. If you meet the standards we're looking for, you'll be invited onto the next stage of the process.
You'll be asked to complete another online numerical test that looks for the level of numerical ability that's required in the role. If you're successful at this stage, you'll be invited to an all-day assessment centre onsite at Nottingham.
The assessment centre, is the third and final part of our screening process. This will test your skills in five work-relevant scenarios - some you'll take part in on your own, some will be with a group. It will give us the opportunity to assess your behaviours and find out if you are truly right for this challenge.
If you're invited to an assessment centre, we'll send you a link to our preparation site that will give you all the information you need to prepare and do your best on the day.
