What you can do at PA

Our hiring process

Whilst each career path at PA is unique, you can expect to follow these steps when you apply for a role with us.

Online application

The first step is to explore our current vacancies, and apply online for a role by creating a profile or submitting supporting documents (CV, Design Portfolio etc.). Our recruiting team will then evaluate your application based on the job you have applied for. If you are applying for a Design role, you will also be asked to submit a portfolio as part of your application.

Introductory call

If we feel like your skills are a good match for the role, you’ll be invited to have a call with a member of our recruitment teams, to discuss your fit for the role in a little more detail. This is also an opportunity for you to find out more about the role and PA as a business.

Assessments and interviews

You will then participate in assessments and interviews to evaluate your interest in, and your ability to do the role.

The exact structure and content will depend on the role you’re applying for. The hiring process could include a combination of online tests, technical assessments, assessment centres, case studies, group exercises or competency based interviews with the hiring manager and their team.

Your final interview may be with a Partner or Lead for your function. We’ll keep in close contact with you to ensure you have all the details you need when you reach this stage.

The decision

If you’re successful, we’ll be in touch to confirm your start date and give you all the information you need to make a great start at PA — we look forward to welcoming you!

If you are unsuccessful at this time, remember that there might be other opportunities that would be a great match for you at PA.

Application tips

Applying for a new job can be daunting, so here are some tips to help you make the biggest impact with your application.

Work on your CV
Your CV will be the first things we’ll look at to help us get to know you. Make sure that everything is up-to-date, factually correct and that your spelling and grammar are thoroughly checked. It’s also a great idea to include any achievements or hobbies that you are proud of to help your personality and ability shine through.
Take your time
During any written assessments, the video interview and any interviews held in person, be sure to take your time. For written responses, read each question carefully and consider what you would like to say before you begin. For verbal interviews, take a pause before you begin your response — and ask your interviewer to repeat any questions if necessary.
Ask questions
For any interview, it’s always a good idea to plan a few questions in advance to not only show your curiosity, but also that you’re taking a serious interest in the position and the person interviewing you. You could ask questions about the role you're applying for, or ask your interviewer about their experiences working at PA.
Be yourself
It’s cliché — but it works. We want to get to know the real you, not just to assess your capability, but to make sure we’re offering the right environment and opportunities for you to thrive. Showing us the real you will help us do that — and help you make the most of your career with us if you’re successful.

Depending on your location, we offer a range of healthcare benefits for you and your family, including dental, eye tests, gym membership discounts, Cycle to Work schemes and more.

Striking a healthy work-life balance is key for your success. When you join us, we’ll have an open discussion about what works best for you — including parental leave if you need it.
Enjoy a well-earned break
All our offices have competitive annual leave allowances to help you relax and unwind. You can also buy up to five extra days each year to ensure you get the break you need.
Own your development
Learning never stops at PA. We offer a range of internal and external training programmes to allow you to take control of your career development and grow your skills your way.
Plan for the future
Setting you up for future success, we offer all the sensible things, including company pension, life assurance, income protection schemes and PA shares.

Find your space
At every stage of your career, we have active and firm-wide support communities in place to give everyone at PA perform at their best — if you ever need support, you’ll always find it.

Inclusion and diversity

We believe diversity fuels ingenuity. Diversity of thought brings exciting perspectives; diversity of experience brings a wealth of knowledge, and diversity of skills brings the tools we need. When we bring people together with diverse backgrounds, identities, and minds, embracing that difference through an inclusive culture where our people thrive; we unleash the power of diversity – bringing ingenuity to life.

We recruit, retain, reward and develop our people based solely on their abilities and contributions and without reference to their age, background, disability, genetic information, parental or family status, religion or belief, race, ethnicity, nationality, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity (or expression), political belief veteran status, or other by any other range of human difference brought about by identity and experience. We are on a journey towards ensuring our workforce is diverse at all levels and that our firm is representative of the world around us. We welcome applications from underrepresented groups.
