Once you have found an online vacancy, you will be asked to apply online via a job site, or we will ask you to submit a current CV which provides information about your education and career history.
If you have completed any work based training or have any additional qualifications or certificates, it’s important to include them on your CV.

Please ensure your CV has your most up to date daytime telephone contact number and your email address. It’s a good idea to set up a voicemail on your phone, so you will receive a message from us if we don’t get to speak to you when we call.
Right to Work
You must be able to prove your right to live and work in the UK. You will be asked to bring evidence of this if invited to join The Ice Co.
Depending on the role, and the working location, a member of our team may call you to conduct a short telephone interview. You will be asked a few questions, so we can understand your suitability for the role. This call shouldn’t last longer than 15-20 minutes.
You may be asked why you are interested in working for The Ice Co, so perhaps you should do some preparation for this question.
On site Interview
The on site interview is a chance for us to learn more about you, and for you to see where you will be working if you are successful in your application. We will discuss your skills and the type of roles you have held in the past.
You will be expected to provide specific examples based on your past experience, these type of questions are known as competency-based questions. We may also ask you what you know about The Ice Co, so we suggest you do some research on this website about what The Ice Co does!
Depending on the role you have applied for, you may also be shown around the factory or the working area. Please ensure your clothing is suitable for interview, and you adhere to the dress code explained in the Useful to Know section.
The on site interview shouldn’t last longer than 1 hour unless you are told otherwise.
You’ve got the job! Congratulations! At this stage, a member of management will telephone you to make a conditional job offer. We will need your email address to set you up as an employee.
You will then receive an email job offer which explains the next stage, which is an on site induction. This job offer will explain the terms of the role, how much you will get paid and all the important information you need to know.
You will then receive an email invitation to join our HR platform and provide all your details ready for your first day.
Your first day will be the induction. Important information about the health and safety obligations will be explained. You may also receive a tour of the site and your working location (if you haven’t already).
You will conduct some short e-learning sessions on a computer using our online training portal. Each subject has an assessment to ensure you have understood the e-learning. It will be on subjects such as health and safety, fire awareness, manual handling and even slips, trips and falls. Our Drug & Alcohol misuse policy and our Attendance Objectives will also be explained to you in the induction.
We do receive lots of applicants when we are recruiting and our selection process can take time. We hope we can count on your patience. You will hear from us as the process moves forward.
