Here are a few of the most commonly asked questions.
We hope they'll help you in making your choice to join us...
"I have found the perfect role but want to apply quickly.
Why can’t I just drop my CV into the Store?"
Each candidate’s application is very important to us, that’s why all candidates are required to apply through our applicant tracking system to ensure we keep all your details safe and can monitor the progress of your application.
"The location/job role I’d like to work in doesn’t currently have any vacancies, can I still apply?"
You can drop your CV into our Talent Pool and register your details so that we can find you when a vacancy opens up in your area
"If I apply for a job, how quickly will I hear back from Steinhoff?"
We’ll contact you by email to confirm we have received your application. After that our timescales depend on the specific role but we will be in touch to let you know as soon as we can.
"Do you give feedback?"
Due to the large volume of applications we receive we are currently unable to give specific individual feedback but we will always let you know if you have been successful or not.
"I have an interview - how should I prepare?"
First of all, relax! We know you are probably nervous but we are very friendly here at Steinhoff UK Retail and are just eager to find out more about you. Our advice to all candidates is to be themselves but don’t forget to bring along your eligibility documents to the interview so we can verify your right to work in the UK. This is usually a passport, a birth certificate with evidence of your NI number or a valid work VISA. Unfortunately, we cannot make any offers of employment without these documents so it’s important that you remember to bring them with you to the interview.
"You are opening a new store near to where I live, how can I apply to work there?"
We are proud of our continuous successful growth and are always opening new stores across the UK. All new store vacancies will be advertised as soon as they’re available on our careers site. Why not register your details with us so we can contact you? Simply create an account on our Search & Apply Pages.
"I have been offered a job at Steinhoff UK Retail what happens now?"
That’s great news, we can’t wait to welcome you into the Steinhoff family. Once we have called and offered you the job you will receive a confirmation email outlining the terms of your offer alongside a link enabling you to upload details of you references and eligibility documents. Your new starter pack will then be posted out to your home address alongside your contract of employment.
