  • SELECTION PROCESS +

    A brand built on individuality & heritage. A selection process that lets your personality and skills shine through.

    Your strengths. Your aspirations. Your personality. Our selection process has been created with you in mind. We want you to be able to express
    your talents, tell us who you are and show us why you should be part of our brand.

    The process can vary depending on whether you’re looking to join us in store or at our head offices. Similarly, it may also vary from role to role.
    But wherever you want to join us, if your initial online application is successful, we’ll make sure you know exactly what to expect next.

    Store Selection Process

    Stage One: Telephone Interview If we like what we’ve read in your application, our Resourcing Team will arrange to have a telephone interview with you. You can expect this to happen within 10 days of making your application. As well as exploring your CV in more detail, we’ll make sure you know exactly what to expect from the role.

    Stage Two: Face-to-face Interview/Recruitment Event Impress us enough on the phone and within 10 days you’ll be invited for a face-to-face interview at your local store. Conducted by a member of the Store Management team, we’ll be looking to find out more about your work experience, what makes you suitable for the role and why you want to join Popleys. It will also form part of a three-hour recruitment event where you’ll take part in practical exercises determined to establish whether you have the skills and competencies you need for the role.

    Stage Three: Second Interview The interview and recruitment event usually gives us enough information on which to make a decision, but for some roles we may ask you back for a final interview. This should happen within a few days. If we do, you can be sure of one thing. We are seriously considering you for the position. So make sure you come in and impress us one final time.

    Stage Four: The Offer We aim to get back to you as soon as possible. Usually within 10 days. If you’ve been successful we’ll get in contact to make you the offer, answer any questions you may have and agree your start date. After that, we’ll look forward to welcoming you on your first day.

    Feedback If you‘d like feedback on your performance at either the interview or recruitment event, we’ll be very happy to provide it to you. All you’ve got to do is ask.

  • APPLICATION TIPS +

    There’s no one way to impress us. But the best way is through preparation. Know our brand and we’ll want to get to know you.

    We want you to get it right on the day. Just as much as you do. So here are a few tips that will help you prepare for the selection process. Again preparation is key. Make sure you have done your research on Popleys and you know the ins and outs of the role you’ve applied for.

    • Think back to your telephone interview. Could you have used a better example to show your strengths? Were there areas of your experience you
    thought were relevant but didn’t mention? This is a chance to make sure we know about them.

    • Popleys is always looking to the future. We want to know you’re progressive too. So let us know about your career aspirations, what you want
    to do, and what you have done in the past to further your career.

    • If you attend a Recruitment Event, you will take part in a group exercise. They’re a great way for us to see whether you can fit into our culture
    of teamwork. Some people try and take control, while others are more inclined to follow. Think about the competencies we’re looking for, and
    show your skills to the best of your ability.

    • Keep calm and be yourself. We’ll employ you for your personality and individuality as much as your experience.

    One last thing. Good luck!
