Yes of course … we encourage pro-active self management of your career and development; and for your chosen career path, even if it changes during your time with Victrex.
Yes we certainly will, and we not only support our team members in continuing their relevant career development to gain additional qualifications; often helping with development costs. We also officially celebrate and recognise our team member’s professional qualification achievements every year!
Yes, we encourage everyone to apply for other opportunities when they arise and regularly talk with our colleagues individually, developing their Professional Development Plan (PDP), to help identify opportunities to grow your career within Victrex.
No just provide as much info as possible and tell us about you, and your achievements (work and personal), your interests or hobbies and what drives you as well as your CV details!
We tend to use competence-based interviews during the recruitment process as well as questions relevant to your technical areas of expertise, or skills. So, prepare a range of examples of how you approach your challenges and successes, and how you deal with both positive and negative outcomes in your life; for both work if that is relevant, or during your academic experiences or even life in general, if you are an early career applicant.
As well as ensuring you have great examples to demonstrate your approach to certain situations, make sure you take a look at all the Victrex websites and find out about what we do and what we are passionate about at Victrex.
At Victrex we have a whole host of different ways you can continually enhance and develop your knowledge, qualifications, and career. All of which are discussed regularly with your line managers and your development is planned together in your Personal Development Plan, which is an integral part of your ongoing career dialogue throughout your career!
