How to apply

Total duration: 1-2 weeks
We believe in giving everyone an equal chance. We want to find out if you have the necessary skills, independent of your background, gender, ethnicity, age etc. and take active steps to reduce any potential bias in our recruitment process. 

  1. Screening: After you submit your application materials, we will review them to gauge if they meet our requirements. We aim to get back to you as soon as possible.

  2. Recruiter call: If you pass the initial screening, we will be in touch to schedule an initial video call. The goal of this initial video interview is to learn more about you and what you are looking for. This call is also an opportunity for you to learn more about Medbelle and the role so that we can both evaluate if there is a mutual fit.

  3. Hiring Manager interview:  If this all goes well, we will be in touch to schedule a face-to-face interview with the Co-founder and Head of Culture & Talent, which will allow you to show how your experience will help you contribute to the role and department.

  4. Case study & presentation: If we both want to continue after that, then we will send you a brief case study that is related to your role. We would like for you to work on the case study in your own time and prepare a short presentation on it. We will then have another interview with you, where you present your case and we will do an in-depth interview and some additional casework. This should give both of us an opportunity to judge if we can see each other working together over the long term.

  5. Cultural match interview: Your final conversation with someone outside the Culture & Talent team will ensure that you will be a great addition to our entire team and will feel at home here.

  6. Reference calls: We will ask for the contact details of your prior manager and a direct report.
