We have covered national security needs and implications on the Careers
, and Vacancies
pages. When working in an environment where honesty, integrity and loyalty are so important it is not surprising
that the selection process is thorough. It must be noted and indeed a warning to those with hostile intent, whilst working
at the Company is in our opinion well-rewarded, we take steps and work with the relevant authorities to ensure such hostiles
are found and dealt with according to the treachery and other relevant acts.
Our selection approach is based
on the fact that once employed if you choose to leave you may never return to work at ADM Shine Technologies Ltd nor any of
its interests. We offer really good advancement and support for further education (eg BSc, MA, PhD), special leave, maternity/paternity
leave and Reservist/TA leave, so any career breaks or furtherance can be made without impacting on the 'never return'
rule. This is not about disloyalty or a dispirited stance on our part it is done for security reasons.
and Pending Vacancies are on the following pages:
As soon as a vacancy is OPEN you will have a
link to an Application and Recruitment pack....OMITTING ALL BUT THE OBVIOUS SECURITY DETAILS:
STAGE 0: We agree a selection criteria per post,
job description, advert and agreement on how this is going to be described, we agree a presentation to the candidates about
the company, site and role, then we set a series of milestones in a recruitment plan. For value for money we prefer to recruit
several posts together to optimise costs;
STAGE 1: Advertising the job(s) on our website and applicable (but
carefully selected) media;
STAGE 2: The selection process starts with paper CVs or unsolicited requests. These
are handled in the first instance and added to the pool of respondents to an advertised job post [we operate a 100% advertised
policy - albeit some may need to be described in the broadest terms publicly];
STAGE 3: If you are someone
we believe has skills for the role you are interested in, (or we feel you have potential in other roles), we will put your
papers forward for a first pass check to be made on identity, education and employment [we will not contact current employer];
STAGE 4: Then we invite those for a short briefing, security paperwork, swearing of an oath, signing a non-disclosure
agreement and an informal chat with at least one of the Directors and some of our staff over a buffet lunch;
5: The next stage is to come for a formal interview, and have a small tour of some of the facilities and see some of the capabilities
STAGE 6: Some will also enjoy that day Psychometric Tests in the form of short exam papers, and
a practical Science &/or Engineering assessment. Some may have just an informal chat with similar employees to the grade
of the post;
STAGE 7: Those candidates that are successful from this stage will be invited to meet at least
two of the directors and the lead manager, engineer or scientist from the post's work area. Security may need to have
a chat to resolve any issue with the application and their papers;
STAGE 8: If necessary further informal
discussion(s) may be pursued with the relevant Director/lead in a bid to finally determine a/the successful candidate(s) and
furnish them with a conditional offer letter; and
STAGE 9: All goes well you start and enjoy the probationary
period. Our hope is that will be the start of an amazing time working on some truly exciting, fast-paced engineering and science.
Please don't be put off or scared by the above... not many people ike interviews and are nervous, we understand
and we will do our utmost to make sure you understand and are reassured that we understand this - don't feel it will be
the boisterous, confident, perhaps loud individuals that will always get the job and perhaps you're not any or some of
that. You stand 100% every chance to shine as they do, and we will give you 100% every chance to in what you are comfortable
with - just be yourself....
