We want your journey through our recruitment process to be as simple and straightforward as possible.

Find out more about what we are looking for in our interview & CV tips. We’ve outlined how it all works with our recruitment timeline, and we promise to keep you updated with clear and tailored communications at each step. If at any time you’re not sure about where in the process you are or what will happen next, please get in touch.

Our commitment to talent

As you can see, Nominet is a great place to develop and grow your skills and your talent. So, if you’ve decided that this is the right place for you but can’t see the job you want right now, then leave us your details.

We’re more than keen to grow our own talent and we’re always looking for people with the right attitude and skills. All you need to do is add your CV and covering letter to our talent pool, and as soon as we have an opportunity that matches you we’ll be in touch.

Interview & CV Tips

We advertise all of our roles and opportunities right here on our website. Before you get started with your application, make sure you can answer ‘yes’ to all of these questions:

  • Take a look at our culture; is this the environment that will help you to do your best work?
  • When considering a position, think about your own personal skill set against the job’s role and responsibilities, are they a great match?
  • Do you have the requested background and profile to enable you to be successful?
  • Is there still room for you to stretch and grow?
  • Most of all does this role, in this company excite you?

If you have answered ‘yes’ to all of them, it’s time to brush up your CV. Here’s what we’re looking for:

  • We want to know what made you the person you have become today, so don’t leave anything out – your CV should give us a complete picture of your working experience.
  • Are there any skeletons in your cupboard? Just tell us, we prefer honesty!
  • We have very many CVs to read, so please try to keep it concise wherever possible.

You’ll also need to send us a short covering letter which gives us a sense of who you are, what you love doing, what your recent successes have been, and most of all, why you want to work at Nominet.

Finally, you’ll need to send this letter together with your CV to recruitment@nominet.org.uk – or follow any specific online instructions that an agency might have given you.

If you’ve sailed through the questions above it is likely we will be in touch very shortly – and we can’t wait to meet you!

What happens next?

Once you’ve applied for a live vacancy on our careers site, here’s what you can expect to happen next:

  1. You’ll receive an automated email response via email that confirms we’ve received your application.
  2. If we think you’re a good match for the role, we’ll contact you to arrange an initial telephone interview.
  3. If your telephone interview goes well, we’ll then invite you to our offices for a more formal interview.
  4. In most cases, if the recruiting manager decides you’re still a good match (and assuming you think we’re right for you too!), there’ll be a 2nd stage interview which will give you the chance to meet one or more of our senior leadership team.
  5. Finally, if everyone agrees that you’re the right person for the role, we’ll talk you through the offer process and, hopefully, agree on a suitable package and start date.
  6. For some roles, we might also ask you to complete a test or even do a presentation – but we’ll give you more details on what we’ll expect from you at the time.
