Our selection process

What to expect

We want to attract the best people to work at Hitachi Capital UK. To help you succeed in your application, this is what you can expect from our selection process.

We wish you good luck with your application and look forward to welcoming you on board

Your application 

Your CV should include your contact details, education and qualifications, work history, experience and relevant skills. A cover letter should summarise your career, skills, why you would like to work for us and relate your experience to the role you’re applying for.

If you have not found a suitable role in our open vacancies, please submit your details through our Talent Network. We may not have the right position for you right now, but will keep your details in our Talent Network and contact you if a suitable position arises.

Preparing for your interview

We use a variety of selection methods during the interview process, including telephone and face-to-face interviews. You will be advised what the selection method is prior to your interview.

Depending on the type of role, you may be asked to prepare a presentation, attend an insight day, or complete an assessment for specific skills required in certain technical roles.

If you are applying for a telephone-based role, you may be asked to undertake a roleplay to demonstrate your communication skills.

Regardless of the role you’re interviewing for, preparation is key. Use our website to find out as much as you can about what we do. Understand how your CV relates to the role you are interviewing for and think of examples you can talk about to demonstrate your skills and experiences.

Finally, prepare some questions to ask the interviewers as this is your opportunity to understand the role and culture at Hitachi Capital UK.

Pre-employment screening

As a financial services provider, we require all employees (including contingent workers) to complete pre-employment screening as part of their offer of employment.

As well as a criminal record check, pre-employment screening will verify your ID, eligibility to work, your academic and professional qualifications, your past five years of employment and/or education, and check for fraud, County Court Judgments and bankruptcies over the last 5 years.

In cases where further information or assistance is required to progress your pre-employment screening – for example, to provide supporting documentation – you may be contacted directly by the pre-employment screening team.

As pre-employment screening is part of Hitachi Capital UK’s recruitment policy, if you do not want us to carry out the check, we will not be able to proceed with your employment application.

If you don't think you will pass the pre-employment screening, please get in touch and advise us of your situation. We will be able to discuss with you how best to proceed with your application.
