Our Application Process

Our application process is designed with safer recruitment in mind at all times.

What you need to do to work with us...

1. Make sure you have read our important information before you apply.

2. Complete an application form which should:

  • Reflect you
  • Be an honest & accurate picture of you and your skills
  • Be detailed enough so we can assess your application properly
  • Show your passion for working with children and as part of a dynamic team.
  • Include 2 Referees who will be contacted immediately on submission of your form.
3. Keep checking your emails - even your spam/ junk. Following submission, we will be in touch very quickly letting you know whether or not you have been invited to an interview.
  • If you are invited to an interview, please let us know ASAP if you will be attending as the invitation is only valid for a short period of time.
  • If you confirm your attendance and change your mind or something comes up, please tell us straight away.

4. A week or two before the interview we will send you an email with some key steps that need to be followed before we meet you.

The email will include:

  • DBS Registration. This will only take a few minutes. Failure to complete this could cancellation of your place at the interview.
  • What you will need to bring to the interview.
  • What you will need to prepare.
  • Make sure you have some questions to ask.

5. It’s interview time! There will be group work, a chance for us to ask you questions and vica versa. It’s a lot of fun!

6. For certain positions, such as management roles, the application process may require a second interview stage

7. We will be in touch very quickly to let you know if we will be offering you a position or not. If you decide we are not for you following the interview, please let us know.

8. Once an offer is accepted, we will send out your contract, your job description and a staff handbook.

9. You will need to review the contract and job description, letting us know if there are any issues or if you have any questions. Once satisfied, sign the contract and return it within the correct timescale.

10. You are now almost ready to work at camp. We will be in touch regularly with regard to any extra paperwork we need and how you can prepare for camp.

The best thing about camp is the the 'family feeling' that XUK promotes. It is very unique and makes working at camp EVEN more enjoyable!
