Here at Monsoon Accessorize we ask our prospective candidates to apply for all vacancies including work experience via our website. This helps us respond to your application in a timely manner. To apply, you'll need to complete your personal details and also upload your up-to-date CV. If you are applying for a design specialist role, we will also ask you to upload some examples of your work. Every candidate who applies online gets a response from us - this will be via email.
If you are applying for a Sales Assistant position please download an application form from our website and take it to the branch you would like to work in. All of our Sales Assistant recruitment is conducted by our Branch Managers in-store.
After a successful telephone interview, the Talent Team will invite you to a face to face interview for the role you have applied for. For our retail management positions this will normally be in store and for head office roles in West London or in our distribution centre in Wellingborough.
Here at Monsoon Accessorize, we use a specific form of interviewing known as competency based interviewing. This means we are going to be asking you questions that specifically ask you to demonstrate your work experience in your answer. There are no trick questions and we are not trying to trip you up or catch you out as we want to understand your strengths and what you can bring to our business.
The best way to prepare for our interviews is to think about how you deal with situations in your current/previous roles so when you answer you can give us lots of examples, for example you might like to think about how you work under pressure.
After you have applied online, our Talent Team will screen your application, and if you are successful, we will invite you to a telephone interview.
A telephone interview helps us to understand your experience in more detail and typically takes between 15 - 30 minutes. You can expect to be asked about your career history and about why you want to join our business and you'll get to ask us some questions as well.
You may be invited to an assessment centre rather than a 1:1 interview. You will be fully briefed before attending however typically our assessments involve: a group exercise where we will be observing your contribution to the task/team, a presentation which you will need to prepare in advance and a competency based interview.
Everyone who applies online will receive an email response to indicate whether your application has been successful. Unfortunately due to the volume of applications we receive we are unable to provide detailed feedback if you are not successful at application stage.
If you have been invited to an interview you will receive verbal feedback from our Talent Team we aim to provide this within seven working days of your interview. We also ask that once you have had your interview that you call our resourcing team to let us know your thoughts on your interview, how you feel about working for our company and the role you have applied for.
