“I really enjoy the culture and office environment at EE. It’s a great place to work, and everyone has been really helpful and friendly during my time here. The rotations have given me a good breadth of experience, and it’s been great to see different aspects of the business and how they fit together. I didn’t come from a Financial background so was slightly apprehensive before I started, but that hasn’t held me back and I’ve learned a lot over the past two years.”

Application Procedure


When will I find out the outcome of my interview?
This varies, depending on the role. Your recruiter or interviewer should let you know when to expect feedback. If you're unsure please check in with your recruiter.

Why have I been rejected at application stage?
We carefully review all applications against our criteria for the role and take time to look over any questions that you answer during the application process. If you don't make it past this stage it's because we've decided your application hasn't met the criteria we're after for this particular role, or we've had applications from more suitable candidates.

Unfortunately, due to the number of applications we receive for each role, we can't give feedback on an individual basis.

You should also note that, if you've been passed over for a role, you won't be able to apply for the same position for another six months. Don't worry though; there are still plenty of great jobs on offer that you can apply for.

What is the status of my application?
We'll let you know when your application hits the next stage of the process through email. If you haven't received any emails from us, please check your spam and junk mail folders.

You should note that if your application has been unsuccessful, we won't keep you waiting any longer than we have to. So if we haven't been in touch, you're still in the process.

Can I get feedback on my rejected application?
If your application has been unsuccessful it's because we reviewed your details and answers to the application questions against the criteria for the role and, on this occasion, we didn't think we were the perfect fit for each other. And while we can't give feedback on every unsuccessful application, we'll be more than happy to get in touch if you attended an interview. Let us know by contacting the recruiter that arranged the interview.

I've previously applied for EE, how long do you keep my application on record for?
We know how important digital privacy is and we want you to trust us with your information. That's why, although we'll keep your records for up to 18 months, only our recruitment team and recruiting manager will ever have access to them. And that's a promise.
