Top Tips on How To Apply

We want you to succeed and we know some people are either out of practice or don’t have any experience when applying for a job, so we thought you’d appreciate a helping hand.

Make sure you research who we are, what we do, and what we care about. Use our website, give our team a call, and have a chat with them about what it’s like to work here – whatever it takes for you to get a feel for who we are.

Before applying, ask yourself the following questions:

  • Do I care about the same things as the Hatt team do?
  • Am I like minded to them?
  • Can I imagine myself fitting in?
  • Can I add value to them as a team and as a company?
  • Can they add value to me and my career?

If you can answer YES to all or most of these questions, then you are ready to start your application.

Remember, we get hundreds of applications for every job so yours needs to stand out.

The Basics:

  • A well-presented CV with succinct but informative detail
  • A covering letter is addressed to the person who deals with the applications. This should tell us why you want to work with us and what value/skills you feel you can bring to the table.
  • An accompanying video telling us about you as a person, what you like to do in your spare time, the kind of team/company you are looking for, and what your aspirations are for the next 3-5 years.

Double-check all of your applications before you press send …. once it’s gone, it’s gone!

How to Prepare a Covering Letter

  • Address it to the person responsible for recruitment

Who we are looking for:

We choose our team members based on their attitude first and skills second. Our biggest asset is our team which is why all team members within an organisation take part in our recruitment process and have a say in whether potential candidates will be a good fit.

To be the perfect addition to our team you would be truly passionate about the role you are applying for and have a naturally positive and friendly personality. You will value the need to be open and honest with your team members so that you can help them grow and you will seek out honest feedback from them to help you become the best you can be. You will be selfless and put your team and customers before yourself when needed and you will be driven to succeed and support the company to reach greater heights and be a great place to work.
