Who should I contact if I have any questions regarding applications and recruitment?
If you have any questions regarding recruitment you should email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 01726 811911 and ask to speak to the HR Team.
Where can I get an application form from?
If you have seen a job advertised and would like to apply, you can download an application form from the Current Career Opportunities section. Follow the links to the role profile of the vacancy you are interested in. Links to the application form are located underneath the role profile.
All of our vacancies are advertised on this website, so if you cannot find a job that you have seen advertised elsewhere, then the vacancy probably isn’t genuine.
I have applied for a vacancy, when will I hear back from you?
The length of the recruitment process will vary enormously depending on the vacancy and the volume of applications we receive. We are therefore unable to state how long it will take us to get back to you. We do however make a commitment to respond to all of our applicants, whether successful or not, so you will be hearing from us as soon as possible.
Do you accept speculative CVs?
Unfortunately we do not accept speculative CVs. If you would like to be kept up to date with vacancies at Eden, then please sign up to our job alert email.
What should I wear to interview?
Here at the Eden Project we dress for comfort, so you should wear whatever you feel comfortable in. If you come along in a suit, you will probably be the only person wearing one!
