Got a question on our recruitment or way we work? Take a look below, we’ve tried to answer the most common questions that candidates have to make things a little easier for you.
I’ve been invited to an interview, what is the format?
We don’t like to focus too much on competency-based questions at whyaye. We like to keep things more informal to get to know you better. During the second stage we will dive into your skills, experience and technical knowledge (if relevant) a bit more but keep these questions open ended so you can answer as you see fit.
What is the interview process?
This is how we like to approach recruitment at whyaye:
- We look through every CV that we receive and if we think you’re a good fit, you’ll be invited to a first stage informal chat with Nige ‘The Organiser’.
- If that goes well, you will be invited to second interview with the relevant business area lead, who will dig more into your experience and the role itself.
- We normally follow up with a final interview with another mob member which dives a bit more into cultural fit and gives you the opportunity to learn more about our other service offerings.
- We would then contact you to offer you a role to become an official whyayer!
Sometimes we will not be able to offer roles straight away but will add you to our pipeline and will let you know as soon as an opportunity presents itself.
What do you mean by pipeline?
Due to the nature of the work we do within clients, we keep a pipeline of candidates who we have already been assessed and we think would be a great fit for us. As soon as we have a relevant role for them we will contact them to make an offer. Timelines of how long candidates are in the pipeline for can vary but we will make sure we keep in regular contact throughout the process so candidates know what is happening.
What is the structure at whyaye?
We don’t believe in a traditional hierarchy and want to give our mob members the ability to choose the support that they need. We operate as a flat structure and have created a network mob framework where our members can specify which coaches they want to work with on their personal development and service area expertise. We trust our mob to deliver amazing things and give them the power to make that happen.
Will I need to travel a lot?
Depending on your role and our clients, there may be some travel needed occasionally. We don’t like being away from home regularly or for long periods of time so we wouldn’t expect our mob to either and try keep it to a minimum.
Do you offer flexible working?
We do yes and are happy to chat through your needs. This can be something you raise at the first stage interview with Nige ‘The Organiser’.
I would love to work for whyaye but there are no open roles live at the moment, can I still apply?
Absolutely, get in touch! We are always on the lookout for exceptional talent and have a pipeline of candidates ready and waiting for when suitable roles become available.
