Make an application

Register and complete an application telling us why you're right for the role. We want to hear all about you, your skills and experience that can demonstrate to us who you are and what makes you really stand out. You can either complete our application form or upload a copy of your CV.

The next step

If you’re invited to an interview, you will need to pick a slot. Our interviews can take place by telephone, via Microsoft teams or face-to-face. You may be asked to complete a series of assessments which will help us find out more about you.

Prepare for an interview

You may need your application to hand, any questions and a notepad and pen to jot things down. Think about your career history and have a good read about Lincolnshire Co-op. We’ll be looking to hear examples from different areas of your life, both at work and outside, where you demonstrated problem-solving skills.

During the interview

Listen carefully to your interviewer, but don’t be afraid to ask questions. Remember, we’ve already seen your application and decided that we’re interested, so this is your chance to build on that positive start.

We’ll be in touch

During the interview we’ll let you know when you’ll find out the outcome and what the next steps might be.

Offer accepted

Congratulations and welcome to team Lincolnshire Co-op. We will start to discuss your joining date. You’ll then have access to our onboarding platform with some information to help you start your career with us.

Work togetherInterview tips

If we’ve looked over your application and think you’re a good match for the role, we'll be in touch to arrange an interview with you. Don’t feel daunted – just remember to be yourself. Dress appropriately to create a good first impression.

Your interview with us could take many forms, which could be anything from a face-to-face meeting, a video call or even an assessment centre. The format will depend mainly on the role that you have applied for. But don’t worry, we’ll let you know what you need to prepare in plenty of time.

For any interview, we’ll always seek to give feedback on your performance and let you know when you can expect to hear back.
