Making changes to support you through the application process
You can apply to any of our vacancies online via our recruitment system, called Workday. When you select the ‘Apply’ button on a job advert, you will need to create an account. You will then be asked to complete a number of fields within the application form including your contact details and upload a copy of your CV, unless you were instructed that you don’t need to include a CV in the advert.
The online application form provides a responsive interface with the ability to zoom in and is compatible with:
- common screen readers
- focus indication and keyboard support for non-mouse users
- speech-to-text software for hands-free users
- colour and contrast enhancements provided by assistive technology.
The assessment process that follows your application depends on the role you have applied for, but the process may include the following steps:
Telephone screening call: this is usually the first stage of the process after your application. You will be contacted by one of our Sourcing team to discuss the role you’ve applied for, your CV and any questions you have about the role. It is generally conducted over the phone but can be conducted over video interview if preferred.
HireVue or MS Teams interview: these are both online, web-based video interview platforms. We use these tools to conduct face to face video interviews and assessments, which might include competency-based interviews, presentations and informal role discussions with different interviewers associated with the role you applied for.
Arctic Shores behavioural assessment: this is a gamified assessment programme created by our partner, Arctic Shores. The assessment typically takes around 45 minutes to complete, but there is no time limit overall. Some levels require that you respond within a certain amount of time, but this is made clear as it occurs. It includes 8 web-based visual tasks that you will navigate with controls using both hands. Although the assessment contains audio accompaniments, these do not form any part of the tasks.
Across the 8 tasks you’ll be asked to attempt some activities involve number and letter recognition, emotional expression recognition, response time and accuracy, memory, decision-making, and hand-eye coordination.
We want to make sure our assessment process is as accessible for you as possible, so if you have a condition that you believe may impact your ability to complete any of the type of tasks mentioned above, please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate any adjustments to the process you may need. If you’re unsure about anything, please just ask.

At Capita, our policy on visitors and meetings continues to be ‘virtual first’ to protect our colleagues and manage the risk of Covid-19. As such, interviews and background checks will continue to take place online where possible to reduce the need for face-to-face engagement. If your application is successful, you may be asked to attend an in-person ‘right to work check’ in line with government requirements. As restrictions ease, Capita has kept in place some important additional precautions to support safe working in our offices. This means that social distancing (the two-metre rule) is still in place, and all colleagues and visitors are required to wear face masks when moving around our sites. The welfare of our people is of paramount importance to us, and we’re doing everything we can to keep our colleagues and customers safe during this time.
