We are an equal opportunities employer. If you need any reasonable adjustments to be made for your interview with Team, please let us know in advance and we will do our best to accommodate and support you.

Our interview process

1st stage

A call via Microsoft Teams to explore your motivations for joining and your technical experience

personal attributes

Getting to know you

Sometimes we ask people to complete a questionnaire to understand behaviours, motivations and preferred ways of working.


Following on-site interviews, hiring managers typically meet within 48 hrs to discuss and decide whether an offer will be made.

Tips to help you perfect your application

From tailoring your cover letter to bringing out personal values in your CV,  find some tips below to help you put together your application.

Do your research

Get to know who we are and what we’re about so that you can tailor your covering letter to the role you are applying to. This is your opportunity to showcase your most relevant experience, your passion for medical devices or healthcare and the value you can add to the job.

Compile a strong CV

Create a CV specifically for the job that you are applying to. Tie your experiences directly to the role and be specific. Make sure you add dates on your CV when it comes to your career moves or experiences. Check grammar, spelling and ask someone else to proofread your application.

Make it clear and easy to read. A CV that has bullet points which highlight your responsibilities under each role is much easier to read than one with lengthy paragraphs.

We care about who you are and not just what you’re studying or your career history. Be sure to include your extra-curricular activities. These experiences contribute to your skills and personal values.

Be thorough

Your application is incomplete if you are asked for a covering letter and you do not provide one. Make sure you provide it when you apply via our website, it will help us get to know you better.

Frequently asked questions

Where can I find the closing date for job applications?

If a vacancy has a firm closing date, then it will be stated on the vacancy page. For some roles, we run the job campaign until we find the right person. We would always encourage you to apply asap!

I’ve decided to submit an application, what information do you need from me?

We ask you to complete our short online application form, upload your CV and provide a covering letter stating why you want to work for Team. If you’re applying for a design-related role, please include your portfolio.

When will I know the outcome of my application?

You will receive an email confirmation as soon as we receive your application. A member of the talent team and the hiring manager will read your application before we shortlist 1st stage interviews. This may take a few weeks.

Can I have feedback on my application?

We offer feedback to all candidates that interview with Team when possible. We cannot always give feedback on an unsuccessful application due to the large number we receive.

Do you accommodate work experience students?

We welcome students in years 11 to 13 each year who are keen to explore a specific area of the business. We offer one week of work experience which usually falls within the summer holiday. Students will need to be able to get to our offices in Ickleton, Cambridgeshire, each day. You can apply via our website.

I'm an international candidate, can I still apply?

We welcome international candidates and support sponsorship applications. If you do not have the right to work in the UK, we ask you to make this clear on your application. We do require candidates to be able to speak fluent English and have a high standard of written English skills.

Can I apply for more than one position?

Yes! If you have experience relevant to more than one open position please do apply for multiple vacancies, but you’ll need to provide a separate application for each. We would recommend you thoroughly assess your fit with the job requirements and consider where your aspirations lie.

I am completing/have a PhD – what should I apply for?

You can apply for a relevant graduate role. However, if you have significant experience in addition to your studies, then you can apply for any relevant open vacancy.

Will I have the opportunity to travel internationally?

Our clients are based all over the world. Face to face meetings can be required on our projects and form part of typical activities for our consultants and business developers. The amount of travel required will depend on the projects you work on.

If I am offered a position, can I speak with someone in a similar role to help me decide if the opportunity is right for me?

You will have sufficient opportunity during the interview process to cover your questions with potential colleagues. The interview is also about ensuring you find a role that suits your needs so make sure you make the most of the opportunity and ask questions!

Can I have a tour of your office during my interview?

It is not always possible to show you our office as we have to protect the confidentiality of the work we do for our clients. Any tour is at our discretion, however, when appropriate, we will make plans to accommodate you and we will confirm the date.

I am an independent contractor (self-employed), can I become an approved supplier?

Yes, self-employed individuals who can give evidence of the relevance of their services, qualifications and experience are welcome to apply. Testimonials from past clients and evidence of professional indemnity insurance may be required to achieve the ‘approved’ status.

If you work through a Personal Service Company, any engagements will be subject to employment status assessment for tax purposes as you’d expect, but we know what is needed and can support this process.
