Frequently asked
questions,
answered.

Who can I turn to if I have questions throughout the recruitment process?

You are always welcome to reach out to HR and Talent Acquisition if you have any questions about our recruitment process, an open position or more generally about working at Ageras Group.Phone number: 31791715

What do Ageras Group look for in a potential candidate?

At Ageras Group, we don’t have our mind set on an “ideal” candidate. Instead, we aim for diversity in all aspects, and are proud to be represented by employees with all possible professional and academic backgrounds and with 19 different nationalities. However, what we all do have in common (and what we also would like to see in our next employee) is that we thrive in an everchanging environment and always strive to do better.

What does your recruitment process look like?

A recruitment process at Ageras Group will most often look something like this:
Quick telephone screening – 1st interview – Assessment – 2nd interview - Hire
Read more about the 1st and 2nd interview below.

How should I prepare for a 1st interview?

If you are invited in for a 1st round interview, it’s because you have made a great first impression! Now we just want to get to know you better, and equally important - give you a chance to get to know us. The best advice we can give you is to be yourself. We will probably come well around your CV, but we would also like to know who you are when you are not at work. Maybe you have some cool hobbies, a totally unrealistic dream in life or an impressive party trick? Also, remember that we are here to answer all your questions as well. So fire away!

How should I prepare for a 2nd interview (/test-feedback)?

By now, we have must likely spoken a couple of times and hopefully feel that we know each other relatively well. For this 2nd interview, however, we will use the assessment you have done as a basis for dialogue about your approach to work and your professional behavior and mindset. Our goal is to come around your preferences, development areas and strengths so that your potential new manager will know how to create the best possible conditions for you and your employment.
In other words, we don’t expect much preparation from your side, expect for a bit of reflection about the above.

How should I dress for an interview at Ageras Group?

Dress as you! At Ageras Group, we don’t really have a dress code. Some like sneakers and hoodies, while others are more comfortable in a crisp shirt and polished shoes. Wear what you feel comfortable and confident in – so will we.

Can I apply for more than one job?

Sure thing! If there’s more than one job you could see yourself in, then that’s great! Just remember to express why this exact position is (also) the right match for you.

When can I expect to hear back from you after I have applied for a job?

We respect the time you have put into applying for one of our jobs, and do our best to get back to you as soon as we possibly can. Sometimes we manage get back to you within a couple of days, other times after a couple of weeks. However, you can always trust that we will get back to you within a maximum of four weeks.

Regardless if we see you as a good fit or not as the best fit this exact time around, you will ALWAYS hear back from us.

How long are vacancies open for applications?

We rarely operate with application deadlines. Instead, we keep each position open until we have found the very one. However, as a rule of thumb, you can expect a vacancy to be open for at least a couple of weeks.

What if I’m currently not based in the location for the job I’m interested in?

Awesome! We welcome applicants from all countries with a working permit in the country where the job is localized. Currently, we are proud to be represented by 19 different nationalities, and would love for the number to be even higher!

If you are invited to a physical interview in another country than you are currently residing in, we will of course reimburse all costs related to travelling.

In terms of relocating, we are not able to offer any relocation package, but will be happy to put our expertise at your disposal and help as much as we can.
