Our top tips
Don't rule yourself out
Tech is an exciting place to be, and you’d be surprised how many skills you already have that fit into roles here. If your career so far hasn’t been an obvious fit to the role, don’t rule yourself out!
Remember we're on your side
We trust people to do their work wherever and whenever they work best. Don’t be afraid to ask for reduced hours or untraditional schedules. If it’s not something we can accommodate, our lovely Talent Acquisition team will discuss options with you and work together on finding a solution.
Work with the Talent Acquisition team on preparing for your interviews. Don’t be afraid to ask questions - we’re here to help you on your journey, and want you to succeed! There’s also lots of helpful information below including our history and links to blogs.
What to Expect?
Throughout the process you’ll be speaking to one of our Talent Acquisition Team. You can find out more about them below!
☎️ Talent Acquisition will have an initial call with you to discuss the role, salary, interview structure and any preparation - then we’ll move on to interviews.
📧 We’ll generally contact you by phone, but it might all start with an email. If you’ve applied for a role keep an eye on your spam/junk folder too - just in case!
Interviews can be in-person or on a video call, depending on what suits. For video calls we use Google Meet - and bonus points if you prepare any presentations in Google Slides too! Please do turn on your camera, and test your tech ahead of time.
It’s as simple as clicking the connect button above! You can always scroll through our open vacancies but even if nothing quite fits; we’re always on the lookout for top talent. So connect with us, tell us what kind of opportunities you’re looking for, what your skills are and we’ll be in touch. The more information you leave us the better.
If you have skills we need, but aren’t looking for just yet, we may still get in touch straight away. Otherwise, your application will go into our searchable database, so when we need skills like yours in the future you’ll be the first to know.
Connecting also means that you’ll be alerted as soon as a relevant role is advertised too!
- Professional achievements for each job role
- Clear (easy to read)
- Clarity on what you’re looking for in the next stage of your career
- Any professional certifications that you have completed
Once we’ve reviewed your skills and determined whether your experience fits the role requirements one of our team members will call you for an initial screening.
The same team member will take you through the interview process (which for most technical roles will include an online technical test) and be your point of contact throughout your application.
Always. Our business has a culture of feedback, if you take the time to interview with us - we take the time to feed back, regardless of the outcome.
However, due to the high volume of applications received for each post, feedback will not be provided on individual application forms.
Yes, you can. But try to focus on the roles that are best suited to your skills.
CTS values creating an inclusive workplace that brings out the best in all employees regardless of their personal characteristics. If you require any reasonable adjustments within any one of the recruitment stages, please feel confident to contact our recruitment team who will be more than happy to ensure that the required level of support is in place for you.
CTS has an industry-focused approach to DEI. That means that not only do we ensure to be inclusive in our own recruitment practices, we actively work within our industry and communities to inspire and develop those who may not always have the opportunity to get a step up into tech.
We do, but only have limited availability. If you’re interested please connect with us using the team “Placements, internships and work experience” and we’ll be in touch if we have any relevant opportunities.
CTS is a licensed sponsor in the UK and a recognised sponsor in the Netherlands. We are able to provide ‘Skilled Worker’ visas for individuals who require sponsorship to work in the UK or visas for ‘Highly Skilled’ migrants in the Netherlands. Please include information on your current visa status when applying for a role if you would require sponsorship.
We currently hire in the UK (Remote, or Manchester or Edinburgh if you want to work in an office) and in the Netherlands (Remote or Utrecht). But if you live elsewhere feel free to connect with us and we’ll be in contact if we expand to your location!
We support all types of flexible working: hours, location, days. It’s always best to be up front with our recruiters from day one on how you would like to work. After all - We can’t work around you if we don’t know what you need!
