Recruitment process: The first step in the recruitment process is to apply with your CV or LinkedIn, no cover letter is necessary. If you fulfill the requirements for the position, you will then receive an email asking you to complete two tests by Assessio. One is a personality mapping which takes about 20 minutes to complete, the other a cognitive ability test which takes 12 minutes to complete. The reason why we use tests is to ensure a solid and fair recruitment process focusing on potential for the position we are hiring for rather than your CV. If you proceed, the next step is a telephone interview and then a behavioral descriptive interview with Lisette Lind, Talent Acquisition Manager and Emma Hall, Group Legal Manager. For our final candidates, there will be an opportunity to meet with some of the team for a digital fika and an opportunity to ask your future teammates any questions regarding the role or what it is like working with us at Akind.
