Hiring Process

Application Stage

After you’ve applied for a role at SDL you’ll receive a confirmation of your application. We endeavour to respond to everyone who applies, although at this stage, it will only be a short confirmation that your details have been received and are being reviewed.

Should you be successful, a member of the SDL recruitment team will contact you and those candidates whose experience and qualifications closely match what we are looking, will be invited for an interview.
If it turns out that you're not the right fit for a given role, keep checking the job portal as new positions open up all the time.

Interview Stage

If you receive an invitation for an interview, then we think you have the experience we’re looking for.
During the interview process, we’ll be looking to get to know you better as well as expanding on your professional credentials.
You will be interviewed by the HR team and hiring manager who will be able to give you the best possible opportunity to understand your role.
During this first interview you may be asked to complete a Personality Profile, an intelligence test and any technical tests that are required for your role. All these tests can seem a little daunting but don’t worry. They are there as an aid and discussion point, in fact you might learn a thing or two!

Offer Stage

Once you have completed the interview stage of the recruitment process you’ll be contacted by the SDL recruitment team. 
If you’ve been unsuccessful, don’t be disheartened. Keep a look out on the job portal for other roles that may suit you.
If you have been successful – congratulations – you will be informed by the team and receive an offer letter. This will outline the position being offered and the associated benefits. Initially you can accept this offer verbally and then formally accept by signing a contract. All that’s left to be said after that is...
Welcome to SDL!
