      We are committed to a fair, inclusive and transparent hiring process:

      1. All candidates will complete the application form.
      2. Top scorers through the initial application process will be invited to interview, and a pre-interview task will be shared (we’re much more interested in what people could do with us rather than a CV, so it’s good to be able to chat through an approach to an activity).
      3. Following this, we will hold shorter, meet the team interviews with some of the Thrive team to understand what candidates value in a place of work.
      4. We’ll offer the top candidate the role and start the onboarding process.
